I’m writing this edition of Under The Tents from Arizona where I feel like burnt toast. It’s HOT but it is one more reason I am super excited to get to San Diego and have a great week. Today’s UTT features news from Patrick Ballesteros, DCD Collects, Now or Never Comics, Amanda Conner & Jimmy Palmiotti, and more.
Here’s what you may have missed:
- Diana Levin will be at San Diego Comic-Con and will be bringing new art along including this piece. That purple really pops! Diana can be found at table N-08.
- Now or Never Comics in San Diego will be hosting Devin Kraft of Neverender and Silence fame for a signing. The signing will be held on Saturday, July 22, 3P – 6P.
Reminder that I'll be signing at @NowOrNeverComic next weekend – I'm packing this weekend, so if there's anything anyone wants me to bring out specifically, check the shop and let me know! https://t.co/3unq14wfR9 pic.twitter.com/bW2bAcWJlc— Devin Kraft (Silence / Neverender) @ SDCC (@devinkraft) July 15, 2023
- Hero Within will be at San Diego Comic-Con celebrating all things Star Trek with exclusives and a panel. You can find them at booth #1943.
- The dynamic duo of Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti will be at Comic-Con and will be all over the con! Jimmy recently tweeted out their schedule that includes panel times and signing locations.
- Okay real talk, how cool would it be to have a smiling Wolverine pin on your lanyard? Josh Cassara is going making that a reality with these pins he is showing off for SDCC.
- Need more pink art work at Comic-Con? Art By Nan has you covered. What’s that? You want art with less pink? Well, Art By Nan also has you covered. The original pieces seen below will be available at table F-11!
I love bright colors like pink and love in using black inks. I got them both! Check out these originals and more at my table next week in F-11. #sdcc2023 #sdcc #originalart #sandiego pic.twitter.com/VOVClqWbD5— ArtByNan (@nanhockin) July 15, 2023
