Looking out for your best interests, the publisher plans to make all of its San Diego Comic Con exclusives available in one place!
Source: Press Release
San Diego Comic Con is the biggest geek culture event of the year, with over 125,000 in attendance each year for the last six years. And with the increasing presence of movie, television, and video game companies at the convention, along with an annoying need for hydration and sustenance, there are a lot of places for the average congoer to spend their money. This means that the average congoer might have the best of intentions, such as a desire to spend $15.99 on a single glass tumbler with a drawing of Spider-Man by Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada printed on it, but, by the time they've found the Joe Quesada Spider-Man drinking glass booth, they've already blown all their money on something else.
Well, luckily for you, consumer, Marvel Comics is looking out for you. They've opened a booth, Booth #2329 to be precise, where you can buy all the overpriced Marvel paraphernalia you like. T-shirts, iPhone cases, comic books, and other crap, all at prices 3-4 times what you would pay in a regular store! It's like going to a major sporting event, but with less of a chance you'll come into contact with someone who has had sex! Thanks, Marvel!
"Don't thank us," said Marvel Editor in Chief Axel Alonso. "We love money."
Below is a list of the Marvel exclusives available at the booth, along with about thirty images they sent us in an email that we're going to haphazardly upload at the bottom of the article before we check and see if any other companies sent us press releases about exclusives so we can use this same article idea multiple times.
Here's the press release:
