Here at the UBlog, we’re all about teamwork. Which is why Erin Tapken wrote most of the below, but our Editor-in-Chief Kerry Dixon finished this edition off — and is writing this intro, so you’re going to hear about my thoughts on avocado toast. And my thoughts are that Robert is wrong, and avocado toast is great. You prefer eggs for breakfast? Try adding hard-boiled eggs to your avocado toast! With some lemon and cracked pepper. *chef’s kiss*
What’s that? You’re here for Comic-Con news and not avocado toast news daily? We’ve also got tons of news on art, signings, and exclusives from 100% Soft, El Rey comics, Mitch Gerads, and so many more.

- I’ve been thinking real hard about what kind of gift to bring back to my stellar employee, Kyle, who loves all things Supergirl and especially loves Mitch Gerads. Kyle is working extra days for me while I’ll be enjoying San Diego Comic-Con, so when I saw this I knew I had my answer. Gerads will have this print at the Comic Sketch Art booth, signed and remarqued, with an additional signature by Tom King. Limited to 100 copies.

- Executive Producer of Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur won’t be on a panel next week, but he’s still coming to San Diego Comic-Con, and in this video promises a surprise. It it’s not Devil Dinosaur rising up out of San Diego Bay then I will be disappointed.
