San Diego Comic Con, the biggest convention of its kind, is upon us and Archie Comics has plenty of exciting convention exclusive covers to commemorate the event. These limited edition covers are just one of several reasons why stopping by the Archie booth is a priority this year.
The groundbreaking wedding issue of Life with Archie #16 sold out earlier this year but will now be available as a convention exclusive with a brand new cover by superstar artist Phil Jimenez. Archie Comics Co-CEO adds, “We have no plans to reprint this issue as a standalone again, so this is a unique opportunity to get a piece of comic book history.”
In addition, fan favorite video game adaptations Mega Man and Sonic Universe will also receive their own convention exclusives this year featuring sketch variants by Ben Bates and Patrick “SPAZ” Spaziante, respectively.
Last, but not least, New Crusaders fans will have the opportunity to pick up the digital-first series in print for the first time before anybody else with two offerings. The first is a limited edition sketch cover featuring the work of Ben Bates as well as the series premiere edition which includes the first two acts of New Crusaders as well as a cover by Mike Norton.
Make sure and stop by the Archie booth at this year’s San Diego Comic Con to pick up these exclusive covers and much more. Supply is limited so get these collectibles while you still can.
