Under the Tents 2022: The Walking Dead, Geeky Hooker, BeKyoot, Collider

We are just 33 days away from San Diego Comic-Con (yes, you read that right!) — and we’ve got plenty of updates for you in a brand new edition of Under the Tents. Read on for some Comic-Con updates from artists like James Silvani, Jeff Pina, and Val Hochberg as well as announcements from Collider and The Walking Dead,

Lets take a look at the news you might have missed:

  • The Walking Dead showrunner Angela Kang posted a photo from San Diego Comic-Con 2019 earlier this week — and mentioned that she “can’t wait to go back next month”. While not quite confirmation that TWD will be getting another panel, it’s pretty close, and we’ll be shocked if the series isn’t in attendance.
  • Young artist Ethan Castillo shared a look at more Spider-Man original art, and “promised” he’d have other characters at his Artists Alley #AA-01 booth. But really, why would we want anything else when he draws Spidey this well?
  • Comixology revealed that they will be at San Diego Comic-Con next month — and you can stay tuned to their social for more information soon.
  • The Kill Lock creator, and Transformers illustrator extraordinaire, Levio Ramondelli, showed off a new Transformers Prime vs Megatron piece that will be available at the convention.
  • Geeky Hooker, who is really more like “Geeky Hooker & Cocktail Creator” these days, gave fans a Pac-Man crocheted critter heading to San Diego Comic-Con, along with a Pac-Man themed cocktail recipe. If you’re new around here, or it’s just been so long that you don’t remember, Geeky Hooker will hide the critter somewhere during the convention and post a photo of its location. If you find it — it’s yours to keep!
  • The cute folks at BeKyoot have created an adorable new holo sticker of the “Sleepy Bean Squad” which will be available at San Diego Comic-Con, at Booth #2450. Here’s to the power of naps!
  • Disney artist James Silvani teased his Twitter followers with some more samples of original art he’ll have with him at Booth #5555 on the Exhibit Hall floor, starting at $120. Did we mention he also has his SDCC commissions open?

  • Comic artist Jeff Pina tweeted a work-in-progress photo of his latest comic book cover sketch he’s bringing to Table #Q-06 in Small Press, which makes us wonder: Now that they’ve taken all the phone booths out of New York City, where will Superman change?
  • If you have comics or trading cards you would like to have professionally graded and are headed to SDCC, Certified Guaranty Company® (CGC®), CGC Trading Cards™ and Certified Sports Guaranty® (CSG®) will have professionals on hand to grade your collectibles and even witness signings with some of pop culture’s biggest names, including Todd McFarlane, J. Scott Campbell, Scott Snyder, and a lot more. Visit their post to see what you need to do to submit your items.

  • Another SDCC artist teasing a work-in-progress was Val Hochberg, who gave her Twitter followers a taste of the brilliant work she’s bringing to Table #N-12 in Small Press.
  • Collider recently announced (among other things), they have partnered with a studio to bring a world premiere movie to SDCC “that a lot of you will want to see.” When asked on Twitter about when tickets will be available, Collider‘s Editor-in-Chief replied with another vaguely specific “SOON”.
