The massive Comic-Con International runs July 21-24 in San Diego, but it’s never too early to start planning your shopping list. So we’ll be running a list of potential “wishlist” items you may want to check out at the show.
If you are a comics creator or publisher, and you’re planning to bring something new to the con — a sketchbook, a print, a graphic novel debut, etc. — then we want to hear from you. Drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know if you’ll have something cool on hand that attendees should know about. Feel free to send any artwork as well.
Aspen Comics sends word of two variant covers they’ll have at the show, for Executive Assistant Iris and Charismagic
NBM Publishing writes to let us know: “We’ll be debuting Rick Geary’s latest Treasury of Murder volume, The Lives of Sacco & Vanzetti and offering copies of a limited (to only 25 copies) hardcover edition of the book, bound in cloth with a silver-stamped jacket. Each copy will have an original plate signed and numbed. Rick will also be at SDCC and will be happy to personalize them as well.”
And creator Mary Bellamy will be in the small press area with her new sketchbook and a plush toy line: “I have a table over in Small Press under Zorilita-Mary Bellamy and I’ll be debuting my new sketchbook: Sugar Bits, a 150 page sketchbook full of sketches, inked drawings ranging from super cute to pin ups. I also will have volumes 1-3 of Faux Facts – The Truth Can Be Strange! and volumes 1-2 of Ah Heck!! The Angel Chronicles. I also have my brand new plush toy line available this year.”
