Arguably one of the favorite things to do at San Diego Comic Con is to shop. There are 3 different types of shoppers at comic book conventions; take notes!

  • Collectors: These guys drop thousands on collectible merchandise, from hard to find statuettes to rare comics.
  • Art Fiends: All they want is custom art work. You’ll see them with shopping bags packed tight with poster tubes.
  • Exclusives Trolls: Attendees come and buy hundreds of dollars worth of exclusives and sell them online to pay for their ticket and accommodations. In 2014 I met a 10 year old boy who demanded that his mom wait in the Lego line at 6am to get an exclusive toy to pay for their trip. That kid was awesome.

Personally, I keep it cheap and cheery by rounding up the variant comics pushed out by my favorite publishers. This year, DC produced a pretty sizable amount of variant covers that were appealing. It’s clear that their marketing initiatives this year focus heavily on Batman and Superman, but I appreciated their effort to produce covers for a variety of series.

Did you pick up any of these variant covers? What do you think of them? Tell us in the comments!
