Under the Tents 2023: Kevin Eastman, Martin Hsu, J. Michael Straczynski, Terry Moore, Dan Veesenmeyer

We’re still not over saying that San Diego Comic-Con 2023 is “this year” — but to pass the time, we’ve got a jam-packed edition of Under the Tents for you. Many of your favorite artists, authors, creators, and more will be at the con this July, along with an Indiana Jones cosplay meet-up, and more.

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

  • Artist Martin Hsu, creator of Ruby Gloom, is heading back to San Diego Comic-Con, where he will surely have more of his beautiful originals, prints, and more. You can find him at Booth #4530 this summer, and trust us, you’ll want to seek him out.

  • Young Adult novelist Sherri L. Smith, author of Avatar: The High Ground, is heading back to San Diego Comic-Con after skipping 2022. You can find her in Small Press at the Tired Girl Collective booth.

  • You call this archeology? No, we call this the Indiana Jones Meet-Up, and if you’re an Indy-verse cosplayer, you’ll want to h ead to the SDCC photo wall on either Thursday, July 20 at 1pm PT or Friday, July 21 at 1pm PT. You can find more information on the Facebook event page.

  • We’re also happy to see that artist Robert McKeone lists both WonderCon and San Diego Comic-Con on his 2023 appearance list, though we’ll have to stay tuned for exact plans.

  • It’s just not San Diego Comic-Con without some turtle power, and luckily Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles co-creator Kevin Eastman has that in spades. Good thing his convention list for the year includes SDCC, then.

  • Someone there does not appear to be a chance of seeing at San Diego Comic-Con this July is artist Terry Moore, who told artist Jeff Pina that he’s skipping this year.

  • While we previously told you that J. Michael Straczynski, Babylon 5 and Sense8 creator (as well as comic writer and occasional stopper-of-muggings), will he revealing additional details about two upcoming audio series at San Diego Comic-Con, it looks like he’s also got some Babylon 5 news to share. The only thing we know for sure is that it’s top-secret and isn’t the reimagining from the CW — but we are intrigued.

  • Illustrator Christa D is movin’ on up — to San Diego Comic-Con, where she’ll be exhibiting for the first time.

  • Also appearing this year, though certainly not for the first time, is Badali Jewelry. Come geek your geek jewelry on!

  • Still looking for a way to get into the coveted “big show”? If you’re a student, there may be hope. Radford University is offering a field study program that will send students to the convention, where they will examine “the intersection of practicing fan culture and the political economy of industrial marketing”. If interested, you can find more information on the course online.
