Is anyone else freaking out yet? It feels like a switch was flipped and suddenly we are awash with San Diego Comic-Con news. And while some exhibitors may be trying to hog the spotlight (ahem…Funko) there are certainly so many other items of note that deserve to be seen. Thankfully, this is Under the Tents and we’re here to show you some birds with opinions to share, some very sweet crafts, a few more panel announcements and so much more.
Lets take a look at the news you might have missed:
- If you have a specific feeling about NFTs and want to share it with the world, Aaron Reynolds, creator of Effin’ Birds, has you covered with these finely crafted enamel pins. You can snag them at the Nerd Street booth, #2049.
Those pins, by the way, are my San Diego Comic Con exclusive. We were adding them to the site in case there are any left after the con. If you want some, best bet is to come to SDCC. Failing that, check https://t.co/Qs5plRHCU9 a week after the show. pic.twitter.com/6x80Q8iNlQ— Aaron Reynolds (@aaronreynolds) June 14, 2022
- Being one of the first to sign up for the Moobys Pop Up in San Diego during Comic-Con is as easy as shouting “I’m Eating It!”…..or just signing up for their newsletter.

Completed that Gunslinger #Spawn #sketchcover for #SDCC !

- The collection of original art that James Silvani will have available at San Diego Comic-Con continues to grow. Booth #5555 is where you can find Don Karnage, Darkwing Duck and more, starting at $120.
Why is it every time I tell someone outside the industry that I’m going to be at Comic Con next month, their question is “What are you going to dress up as?”— James Silvani (@SilvaniArt) June 14, 2022
Anyway, here’s more art coming with me. Starting at $120. Find me at booth 5555. pic.twitter.com/vLAPN2HcR4
