Thousands are readying to descend upon San Diego to attend one of the biggest pop culture conventions. San Diego Comic-Con is set to once again break attendance records despite Marvel, HBO and Star Wars taking this year off from the big Hall H panels to prep for another big year in 2019.
From panels, to activations, and the parties, there’s much to see and do, even without a badge. But for those entering the San Diego Convention Center, a lap or five around the exhibit hall is a necessity so that you can get the most of your experience. With each square inch packed with booths and merchandise, fans have so many opportunities to come face-to-face with their favorite vendors and artists.
But if you’ve ever spent time perusing the catalog, you know it can be overwhelming. That’s why we’ve put together a handy guide of Latino talent to check out at this year’s SDCC.
Edgar Delgado is a colorist for Marvel Comics and the creator of Ultraduck. His work, some of which is available in English and Spanish, revolves largely around superheroes. His latest project, Los Valiants, is the story of how the world’s first superhero fought the world’s first supervillain and what happened in the process. At SDCC, the book will be available in English.
