Under the Tents 2022: Martin Hsu, Jeff Pina, Val Hochberg, Felix Comic Art

Happy June 8 everyone, also known as “Ghostbusters Day!” We are about to slime you with a whole host of San Diego Comic-Con tidbits, including a bit of Ghostbusters news! Most lips are sealed regarding panel content but we’ve found a few new announcements to share. Exclusives and original art are getting their finishing touches and swag is being prepped as we type this. If you are looking for SDCC news, then who ya gonna call? UBlog, of course!

Let’s take a look at the news you might have missed:

  • ¡Ay, dios mio! The creative team behind the Faustian Luchadore comic, La Mano del Destino, teased on Twitter a very small bit of a San Diego Comic-Con exclusive they have in the works.

  • Felix Comic Art, purveyors of original comic book art from a huge roster of artists, will be making a stop and SDCC bringing with them some of their very fine talent. No word on if this full list will be in attendance, but any of these artists would be a welcome addition to the exhibit floor. Be sure to check out their website for all their signing guidelines.

  • The official #SaveDaredevil fan campaign is riding high after the announcement that we’d be seeing Daredevil on the screen again and is celebrating with SDCC swag giveaways and a fan meet-up scheduled for Thursday, July 21. If you’re a fan of all things happening in Hell’s Kitchen, you’ll want to give them a follow.

  • The LA Ghostbusters have are bringing something strange to the Gaslamp neighborhood….we’re here for it, whatever it will be.

  • Well blow me down! Max Fleischer Cartoons, the folks behind the 4k restorations of Popeye, Betty Boop and other classic animated cartoons, will have a panel during Comic-Con

  • Collider’s Steven Weintraub continues to tease us regarding his previously announced panel and a possible high profile screening.

  • It’s been three years since the last San Diego Comic-Con and during that time the world of comics has suffered several great losses. One of those was prolific writer Brian Augustyn, author of Gotham By Gaslight, Crimson and much more. Fellow writer Patrick Gerard will be participating in a panel to celebrate the life and the work of Brian, along with his good friend Mark Waid.

  • The team from the weekly talk show, The Roll Out, will be leading a discussion regarding the lack of equality in the geeky entertainment industry.

  • Over on Facebook, artist Joseph Schamlke showed off this SDCC exclusive from El Rey Comics of Hail Crow: King of Hell. 

  • After a very “chibi” WonderCon, artist Jeff Pina is taking a more serious turn with his sketch covers, which will be decidedly “non-chibi” from here on out. We like both of these styles Jeff, and everything in between.

  • Who can resist taking a ride on a “Gonk” Droid? Not this little Jawa by Val Hochberg. In addition to this print, Val will be opening up her commissions starting next week.

  • Panel information is still finding its way out, including those for the Comics Arts Conference portion of the convention. Sydney Hiefler will be on the very fashionable “From Mopsy to Trina: Mid-Centurey Fashions in Comics and It’s Legacy” along with Michael Dooley and Trina Robbins.

  • Someone else excited to have a panel selected for the Comic Arts Conference is J.A. Willetts, who will be discussing DC Comics and post-war America.
