Under the Tents 2023: Lucha Libre, 1First Comics, Famous Monsters, Outside Comic Con

Full disclosure: I don’t really eat toast often. Now, a toasted bagel with some schmeer gets my attention. So do eggs benedict. And San Diego Comic-Con news.

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

  • The Tick and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles artist Ian Chase Nichols is returning to San Diego Comic-Con at Booth #2200 with his newest book, Undersea Hero, which will be making its official debut at SDCC. You can pick up Undersea Hero #0 for an introduction into the fantastical undersea world where Undersea Hero and his pal Lord Krakus (a cuttlefish) live. It will be available for $10 each (LE 100), and features the Comic-Con 2023 debut logo. There will also be a Sketch Cover, with blanks available for $10 each, and sketches done at the show will be in black and white. Sketch pricing is as follows:
    • Bust/Headshot – $45 per character (B&W)
    • Full Figure – $85 per character (B&W)
    • Remark – $25

  • In addition to their collab pins with Yesterdays, Tragic Girls Co. will be setup at the Threadless Booth #4931 with a SDCC exclusive print. It’s limited to 20 pieces, and each 13″x19″ print comes signed and numbered for $50 each.
  • Who will be the first Legends of Lucha Libre Champion? Masked Republic will unveil the new championship belt at Booth #1901 along with replicas that will be available on their website at the start of SDCC 2023.


  • Famous Monsters revealed their awesomely creepy SDCC 2023 exclusive print, which you can find on the Exhibit Hall floor at Booth #2035.
