Under the Tents 2023: Street Fighter 6, Flat Bonnie, Sgt. Slaughter, Rachel Smythe

It was a bit of a more “chill” weekend — which has given us some time to catch up on Comic-Con things, and hopefully you’ve also been using that time wisely! We hope you’re marking your schedule plans now that three-fourths of the programming schedule is out (and be sure to join us tomorrow at 4pm PT for our annual Breaking Down the Programming Schedule — Saturday & Sunday edition).

For now, we’ve got plenty of additional SDCC news updates for you, from panel giveaways to wrestlings heroes and more.

Here’s a look at the news you might have missed:

  • Yo Joe! Sgt. Slaughter revealed that he’ll be heading to San Diego Comic-Con from Thursday, July 20 – Sunday, July 23. Could he be making a special appearance on a panel? We’ll have to stay tuned.

  • Join the fight at San Diego Comic-Con! The Street Fighter 6 tournament fight, that is. The Capcom Pro Tour is landing at San Diego Comic-Con, and attendees can compete in this tree tournament for a chance to win hotel, airfare, and a guaranteed spot to compete at this year’s Capcom Cup Last Chance Qualifier (where you could win $1,000,000). Registration is now open.

  • Le Petit Elefant is bringing some BT21 ceramics at Small Press #L-07, like this Unmasked Mang, on Friday. She’ll also have rice cookers available on Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday — and Japan-inspired ceramics available on Saturday. There’s a limit of one ceramic per customer, and they’re first come/first serve. You can find more information on the Instagram post.
