Under the Tents 2022: The Boys, Patrick Ballesteros, Val Hochberg, Panels

There’s no such thing as a lazy weekend now through the end of July! We’re still busy finding the San Diego Comic-Con news for you, including more panel announcements, art ranging from crews that talk it through to characters in galaxies far far away, and some interesting posters.

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

  • One of our favorite stops on the exhibit floor, Val Hochberg, has been busy creating new prints for San Diego Comic-Con. Ahsoka and Grogu would definitely be besties.

  • Some days… it’s just easier to be a rock. If you’re a fan of the best movie of the year, then you’re going to want to snag this Everything Everywhere All At Once piece from artist Patrick Ballesteros during the con.

  • Here’s something interesting for you: Aubrey Art Design, a graphic designer for Amazon’s Prime Video, showed off several posters for The Boys, whose third season premiered this week. The interesting thing is that the posters have a Comic-Con logo on them. Could these posters be giveaways at the con, perhaps as part of an offsite? Panel freebies? We’ll have to wait and see.
  • There are even more panel confirmations this weekend, starting with artist Vince Alvendia, also known as Eggdrop Ramen. Details are scarce, but more Vince is always a good thing!

  • Johnny Kolasinski, PaceyCon’s biggest fan and multi-hyphenate podcast host and writer, will be presenting two panels this year: Making a Living Being Creative and Bad Medicine in TV and Film.

  • Artist and writer David Derks will be hosting three panels at this year’s convention, though we’ll have to stay tuned for more details.

  • Comics librarian Mony Slay will have not one, but two panels at this year’s convention.

  • Writer and humorist Tim Chizmar will also be on a panel again this year.

  • While comic book creator and writer Terry Mayo didn’t specify if the e-mail he received was about a panel, he will be at Comic-Con, and it seems very likely that presence will include a panel.

  • Japanese comic artist Hiroshi Kanatani has a packed schedule of conventions this year — but luckily San Diego Comic-Con is on the list.

  • Comic artist and writer Dan Cooney will also be exhibiting at the convention this year, at Small Press O-01, where he’ll be celebrating the 25th anniversary of his Valentine comic.

  • Here’s one you maybe didn’t have on your bingo card: The Italian Trade Agency is heading to the con, to promote Italian comics. If you’re an Italian artist, reach out to them!
