Under the Tents 2022: Neopets Ethan Castillo, Chris Jericho, Pablo Leon, Hamster and Gretel

We are coming down to the wire, folks; San Diego Comic-Con 2022 is in less than a week. Surely, you’ve started getting ready by now. This edition of Under the Tents has some epic SDCC news from heavy hitters like Phineas and Ferb co-creator Dan Povenmeyer, retailer Factory Entertainment, and so much beautiful art!

Here’s a look at what you might have missed:

  • The Neopets team is heading to San Diego Comic-Con, where they’ll be at Booth #929 with What’s Your Passion Jewelry. You can swing by to snap a photo in front of the Neopets “Step and Repeat” banner (and if you take them on Instagram and use #NeopetsSDCC2022, you could win a set of Faerie Draik plushies); win giveaways like rainbow lanyards and matching paint brush pins as well as collectible stickers; and grab limited edition items. There will be four LE pins available for purchase, including two silver and two gold in Shoyru, Kacheek, Kougra, and JubJub designs. There will also be new jewelry designs and their plush lines on sale.

  • Board game company CMON dropped a tease for something we’ll find at Booth #329 when we swing by to demo some new games they’re bringing. CMON, guys, tell us what it is!

  • Wunderkindt artist Ethan Castillo heard his fans’ desperate pleas to bring more Moon Knight sketches to SDCC Artists’ Alley Table #AA-01, and he is more than happy to provide them. Cheers!

  • Artist Pablo Leon will be bouncing around San Diego Comic-Con this year and promises not to be weird. Sir, if we can’t be weird at SDCC, where can we be weird? Let that geek flag fly!

  • Artist Brian Ewing collaborated with our friends over at Yesterdays for some “strange and unusual” enamel pins you’ll find at Booth #4820.

  • Retailer Factory Entertainment will have some amazing prop replicas on display at Booth #2743 at SDCC this year, including this Back to the Future Flux Capacitor. Plutonium and DeLorean sold separately (not really. It’s just a prop, kids).

  • Phineas and Ferb co-creator Dan Povenmire is excited to be on a panel at SDCC for his latest series, Hamster and Gretel, and he’s bringing some friends and family with him. Be sure to check our Panels post for all the details.

  • Buttons, buttons, who’s got the buttons?? The answer is @buttonsofsdcc on Instagram, who will be giving away nearly 200 buttons at the con. Follow along on Instagram!
  • Pro-wrestling fans will be thrilled to note that Matt Cardona, pro wrestler and host of Major Wrestling Figures podcast, is bringing friends Brian Myers, “Smart” Mark Sterling, and Michael Kanik for an SDCC panel at the San Diego Central Library.

  • If that’s not enough pro wrestling for you, AEW Champion Chris Jericho will be debut his NFT-based comic at SDCC this year as well, according to Bleeding Cool.

  • Thank you for being a friend, Patrick Ballesteros, and restocking these adorable pins and stickers. We never stopped believing in you. You won’t need the Force to find them at Artists’ Alley Table #DD-08 at SDCC this year.

  • Online retailer ZeroStar is taking pre-orders for their SDCC exclusive Batman VS Joker Sculpt Master variant. Only 300 pieces are available for $349.99 each, and they won’t be on the Exhibit Hall floor.
