Part of the fun of attending San Diego Comic-Con lies in the fun of discovering -- and perhaps even buying -- the different exclusive items to be found across the convention center floor. From limited edition variant covered comics, to rare SDCC-specific action figures and beyond.
Perhaps one of the biggest sources of convention exclusives is Diamond Direct, which offers dozens of items every summer. With this summer's SDCC just around the corner, the company has just released the first look at this summer's selection of con-exclusives, including special edition comics, a flocked Swamp Thing from Funko's POP! line, a marshmallow-covered Peter Venkman, and more.
