Under the Tents 2023: Ryan Ottley, Chris Uminga, WWE, Lacuna Coil

All around the country and coast to coast / People always say, “What do you like most?” / Now I don’t wanna brag, I don’t wanna boast / I always tell ’em I like toast.

YEAH, TOAST! Did you know there’s an entire song dedicated to toast? Oh, yeah, and we have San Diego Comic-Con 2023 news for you, too.

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

  • Fans of Italian Goth Metal band Lacuna Coil can meet them and grab a copy of their new comic at CoolMinisOrNot (CMON) Booth #329 throughout this year’s con.

  • If you’ve ever thought to yourself, “Man, that George Mann guy is hard to find. I wish I knew where he was going to be,” prepare to have your wish granted by the Mann himself, who tweeted a helpful infographic for his fans to use during SDCC 2023.

  • Brilliant comic book artist artist Ryan Stegman revealed a Batman sketchcover he’s bringing with him to Booth #4901 on the Exhibit Hall floor.

  • They’re brothers, and brothers look out for each other, especially in artist Chris Uminga’s study in duality with his Logan and Victor piece he’ll have at Artists’ Alley Table #BB-18.

  • Speaking of mutants, Marvel artist Josh Cassara will also be in Artists’ Alley with some X-Men-themed enamel pin sets he’ll have at Table #GG-17 during SDCC this year.

  • Have you joined the A0K1VERSE? If so, you can pre-order from their new Dim Mak x Dragon Ball line before it officially drops at San Diego Comic-Con this year.

  • Players of Mischief & Malice will be looking for the card game’s creators at SDCC this year to find this SDCC 2023 exclusive Malice promo card. There’s only 1,000 of them out there, so they’d better find them quickly.

  • When I was a kid, I saw Andre the Giant pin Bobby “The Brain” Heenan to win a match. If you know what I’m talking about, you’re: a. old, and b. a pro wrestling fan who’s probably heading to Room 6A at 11:15am PT on July 20 to check out Mattel’s WWE Elite Squad panel.

  • Pin-up artist Jeff Egli is going totally retro at Booth #1232 with all the pieces he’s bringing to SDCC 2023.

  • Superstar artist Ryan Ottley wants to make you a winner, so he’ll have 200 mystery boxes containing lots of original art at Booth #4901 on the Exhibit Hall floor, including variant covers for Atom Eve, Darkwing Duck, and more.

  • Artist Chrissie Zullo Uminga revealed her 2023 Sketchbook she’s debuting at Artists’ Alley Table #BB-17 during SDCC 2023. If you can’t make it to the con, she’ll have them available online afterwards as well.

  • Do you pronounce it “NOO-clee-er” or “NOOK-yuh-ler”? You can debate pronunciation and more with the author of Fanbase Press’s alternative history comic Nuclear Power, Desirée Proctor, at Small Press Table #O-03 during SDCC this year.
