Under the Tents 2023: Eggdrop Ramen, Little Friends of Printmaking, Mouse Guard

As you may have noticed, the news is definitely starting to pick up. So busy, in fact, that we’re not going to waste too much time on this intro, and get back to writing the rest of the news. This morning, we’ve got lots of updates for you, including commissions from fan favorite Eggdrop Ramen, new artwork from Mouse Guard and Spider-Man aficionado Ethan Castillo, and so much more.

Let’s take a look at the news you didn’t sleep through:

  • Artist Henry Liao has been busy prepping for San Diego Comic-Con, with new prints, pre-con commissions, and more. Stop by Booth #FF-17 and say hi (and it might not be too late to get on Henry’s commissions list!).

  • Little Friends of Printmaking are always a must-stop on the exhibit floor for us, and you’ll want to add Booth #2046 to your own list to grab this new “Records” sweatshirt, which will be debuting at the con. Looks like a hit to us.

  • Are your Spidey senses tingling? Must be because wunderkind (and also wonderkid) Ethan Castillo showed off a new Spider-Man post it note art piece for the con, featuring Scarlet Spider Ben Reilly.

  • Every superhero knows they need to protect their identity, and Mad Masks can help with that. Meet at the secret headquarters of Small Press #B-02 (and congratulate them on making their SDCC exhibitor debut while you’re at it, because it’s the heroic thing to do).
