Under The Tents 2024: Alex Pardee, Jock, Skottie Young, Kidrobot

T.G.I.F, am I right?!?! Oh wait, it’s only Thursday. What a wild week for San Diego Comic-Con news. It’s coming faster each and every day and *almost* getting hard to keep up with it all. Luckily, you’re in the right place for all the exclusives, all the offsites, all the panels, and anything else you could want. Stick with us and we’ll help keep you informed. 

Now let’s get you all up to speed for today:

  • Alex Pardee, crafter of your brightest nightmares (and some amazing designs), is at it again. He’s given his own spin to Wolverine #1 with a new design, which will be available at his booth as both an 8-color t-shirt as well as an 8-color limited screen print from Burlesque of N.A. Stop by Booth #5502 to get your claws on yours.

  • The hero we deserve. If you want to get your hands on either of these Batman pieces from Jock, make sure you hurry to his booth.

  • Think Yesterdays does only pins? Think again! Slabs Trading Cards, their 2.5″x3.5″ collection of comic book art prints that are sealed in 100% UV protected acrylic cases, blind-boxed collectibles, will be returning to the con. We’re excited to see which Image Comics titled earn a spot in the collection.

  • Prepare to boldly be caffeinated. Apparel maker Hero Within is bringing back their “Energize Lounge” for “The Wrath of Con”, for all five days of the con. Stay tuned for more details and the exact location.


  • My, what big teeth you have. Artist Sean Forney offered another tease at a work-in-progress piece for SDCC. Be sure to stop by Small Press #K-03 to pick up their Scarlett Huntress San Diego Comic-Con exclusive werewolf pins as well.

  • You can catch designer and illustrator Marco Lorenzana at Artists Alley #CC-03, where he’ll have plenty of artwork for you to peruse.

  • Show off your fandom with Nerds and Nomad’s Wonder Woman custom Yeti’s, which will be heading to San Diego Comic-Con. You can lasso these up at Booth #1707.

  • He’s the guy with (maybe) the best hair in the biz, he’s Big Clutch and he’s got something big happening for SDCC. As if we expected anything less.

  • We love checking out everything that Furry Feline Creatives does, which means we’re jazzed to see on Instagram that they are prepping their way toward San Diego Comic-Con. We send you all the virtual caffeine to help you along!

  • Nan Hockin seems to be in the midst of a Porg invasion over at her drawing table. If anyone knows a good exterminator, errr.. I mean “animal control expert,” please see her at San Diego Comic-Con, Booth #F-11 in Small Press.

  • As they celebrate the 20th Anniversary of their iconic Dunny character, Kidrobot will also be introducing a slew of San Diego Comic-Con exclusives, including items from Hello Kitty, The Simpsons, and more. If you’re not able to attend SDCC, fret not! Kidrobot will be selling a small amount of their exclusives next week.

  • Felix Comic Art posted on Twitter that Daniel Warren Johnson’s 4″x6″ sketches will require a ticket from their booth and that Johnson will be drawing while you wait. If you have never seen him draw, that alone is worth the price of admission.

  • Robotech fans around the world were delighted to see on Facebook that there will indeed be a Robotech panel at San Diego Comic-Con. More details will be released closer to the event.

  • Artist Frank Cho has put the finishing touches on a San Diego Comic-Con exclusive variant cover for Witchblade #1. This version will only be available at the Comic Sketch Art booth (in the GG row of Artist Alley), and in limited quantities.

  • Artist and creator Skottie Young has updated his website to include his upcoming San Diego Comic-Con appearances, which will include an Image panel on Thursday and a signing at the Image booth on Saturday. Since schedules are subject to change, keep checking his site for updates.
  • Do you really want this guy making eyes at you? Probably not. Robert McKeone of “Bob Draws Stuff” is working on something with X-Men ’97 fan favorite, Cyclops. Hashtags indicate that this will be a new print for SDCC.

  • If there was any doubt that Cyclops is popular, here’s more proof. Jin Yung Kim, JYK All Day, did this “warm up sketch” of the mutant and indicates it’s the type of original art that he will have at his Booth #CC-08 at San Diego Comic-Con.

  • And lastly today, artist and designer E.J. Su has opened their commission list and announced on Instagram that it’s the best way to get some original art at San Diego Comic-Con, with table space at a premium, we can’t blame them. However, this post was also served as a general announcement that Su will be exhibiting for the first time at SDCC and they will also be partaking in Ultraman panels and signings. Lots of excitement for one little post!
