- Have you really been to San Diego Comic-Con if you haven’t stopped at Symbiote Studios’ booth to play rock-paper-scissors with Catnip Bravo? This year, you’ll find some nifty exclusives, which they’ll be announcing next week. As always, we’ll also find lots of free pins and merch when we stop at Booth #3249.

- Executive Story Editor Mellow Brown, whose credits include American Gods, Blade Runner: Origins, and “a major, Blockbuster anime series from Netflix that is currently deep in production overseas” (which we just found out today to be Dragon Age), tweeted that he will not be at SDCC this year due to scheduling conflicts (“filming”).
Hey. Sadly, I won't be at SDCC. 🤷🏾♂️— Mellow Brown (@MellowMarketer) June 10, 2022
We're filming that week.
But, I'll hopefully have time to sign books at an event in the near future.
I appreciate y'all. ✌🏾
- Last, but certainly far from least for today, indie bookstore Mysterious Galaxy announced via their website that they will be back at SDCC this year. They’ll be holding author signings at Booth #1119 and in the Autograph Area during the con, so stay tuned for more details as they become available.
