UPDATED: Sun, Jul 14, 11:59AM
In December, Comic-Con International introduced a new website (www.comic-con.org) and a new blog, Toucan. Named after the legendary Comic-Con "mascot" who graced the show's logos in the ‘80s and ‘90s, Toucan is the official blog of all three CCI events: Comic-Con International, WonderCon, and APE, the Alternative Press Expo. In addition to regular updates and breaking news on those shows, Toucan features original content every week from columnists Maggie Thompson (Maggie's World), Steve Lieber (Dilettante), Katie Cook (You Can Draw ... with Katie Cook), and Marc Bernardin (Devourer of Words). Join Maggie, and, Marc, along with artist Rick Geary (who created the original Toucan art for Comic-Con, plus the new art used on the blog) and Toucan editor-in-chief Gary Sassaman for a look at this new SDCC feature. Panel attendees will receive an official Toucan collectible button!
