SDCC 2022: Comixology Continues Scottober in San Diego

by Neil Bui

Continuing the success of last October’s Scottober festivities at New York Comic Con, Comixology will be returning to San Diego Comic-Con this week with a West Coast Edition of the Scott Snyder-themed event.

The cloud-based digital distribution platform for comics will debut the next batch of Comixology Originals with creator-owned titles by Snyder and co-created works by top artists in the industry, all edited by veteran comics editor Will Dennis.

“These three series are some of the most ambitious comics I’ve ever been a part of creating,” says Snyder. “They run the gamut from romance, to western, to all ages adventure, and each one is a singular passion project, developed from the ground up with an incredible partner. Tula, Dan and Jamal are co-creators in the truest sense, and I couldn’t be prouder – or feel luckier – to be teamed up on these. Don’t miss them!”

Additionally, Comixology Originals has two Eisner award nominees this year —Adora and the Distance by Marc Bernardin and Ariela Kristantina and Snow Angels by Jeff Lemire and Jock. The winners will be announced at the gala award ceremony on Friday, July 22.
