Under the Tents 2024: Frank Cho, Alyson Court, Reyna Roberts, Wild Bill’s

From soda pop to country singers, you just never know what you’ll find at San Diego Comic-Con. Unless you read this edition of Under the Tents, and then you’ll, well, know.

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

  • Things are about to get a little uncanny, as X-Men: The Animated Series series Jubilee voice actress Alyson Court mentioned that the “plan” is for her to be at San Diego Comic-Con this year. Court is also known for her voice work in the Resident Evil franchise. We’ll have to stay tuned for more details.

  • Eisner-winning comic book writer and artist Daniel Warren Johnson is having a very good week. Not only is James Gunn a fan of his work (as evidenced by his Threads tweet about his Wonder Woman Elseworlds), but Felix Comic Art also confirmed that Warren Johnson is scheduled for San Diego Comic-Con and there will be “special opportunities” for non-attendees.

  • Toastymarshmellow, voice actress and “nerdstyle” content creator, is bringing to heat to the con, as she confirmed San Diego is on her list of appearances for 2024.

  • If this next sketch doesn’t scare you, no evil thing will. We bet you can come up with 101 reasons why you need this Cruella De Vil original from artist Vince Alvendia, otherwise known as Eggdrop Ramen.

He also teased a behind-the-scenes look at his process into creating this Yzma original, which will also be heading to the con.

  • You’ll find Michael Alexandropoulos and his More Great Art at Booth #4500 this year, where he’ll be joined by Kaare Andrews, who is bringing along prints, artwork, and a Reign 2 #1 variant. Kaare will also be doing giveaways and remarks, in what is his first appearance at a con in more than eight years.

  • Writer and creator of Zen Intergalatic Ninja, Stephen Stern, is charting a course for San Diego Comic-Con. You’ll find Stern at Booth #2001, where he’ll have a limited number of hardcover L’Amour Supreme’s ZEN available, and possibly even get it signed by Stern.

  • Stanley “Artgerm” Lau has a busy convention schedule planned for 2024, but luckily he is planning a stop at San Diego Comic-Con, and will also offering commissions.

  • Country artist Reyna Roberts will be performing at San Diego Comic-Con. Where? When? Why? We have our suspicions (and they’re related to the fact that it was announced by IP3, which is led by Michael Uslan, producer of the Batman film franchise, who serves on the Board of Advisors for both San Diego Comic-Con and the Comic-Con Museum), but we’ll have to stay tuned for more details.

  • The fam’s all here. Artist Szerdy showed off a sketch cover for Spider-Gwen: Ghost Spider that will be heading to the con, though we’ll have to stay tuned for more details on how to grab it.


  • You’ll catch Brian Pulido and his Coffin Comics at Booth #5530 at the con this year.

  • Beadle & Grimm’s have not one, but two, panels at the con this year, starting with “ROLL INISH! How to Turn TTRPGs into Live Entertainment” on Saturday, July 27 at 11:15am and “FASTER, PURPLE WORM! KILL! KILL!” live the same day at 4pm. Venues and panelists are still TBA.

  • Great Pop Culture Debate will be debating the best superhero crossover comic at their own live panel on Thursday, July 25.
