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.
- Artist Priscilla Wilson already has a stellar line-up of official San Diego Comic-Con exclusives for this year, but there’s more where that came from, including a run of Soonay and a run of Toratai figures.
Just got approvals on the last of my #SDCC exclusives! So there will be 1 more run of #Soonay figures and 1 run of #Toratai figures that will be officially stickered. Super stoked and cannot wait!— Art of Priscilla Wilson 🔜 SLO Comix Fair (@valorandvellum) June 3, 2022
Don't forget to tune into my twitch tomorrow for first looks at the SDCC pins!
- 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.
- Speaking of Ballesteros, he’s also currently working on a piece that even a gentleman pirate and a Kraken would love.
- 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!

@SD_Comic_Con My excitement in announcing two returning #SDCC2022 panels ("Making a Living Being Creative" and "Bad Medicine in TV and Film") is overshadowed by my heartbreak over the lack of #Paceycon.— Johnny Kolasinski (@cycloptiko) June 3, 2022
- Looking for gay geeks? Well, you can find them at Comic-Con, at the Gay Geeks and Where to Find Them panel, presented by Julian Jetson!

- 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.
I just received confirmation that three panels I submitted for consideration have been picked up by San Diego Comic-Con 2022. This will be the first time in almost three years that I'll be wrangling speakers and other things. I'm looking forward to it! #sdcc #sdcc2022 pic.twitter.com/KmBq84nz3T— David Derks (@dderks) June 3, 2022
- Comics librarian Mony Slay will have not one, but two panels at this year’s convention.

- 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.
