Dark Horse to Help Fans Spend Money on Exclusives at San Diego Comic Con

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 $50 on a bronze plated spaceship toy from the Mass Effect video game and comic book series, but, by the time they've found the bronze plated Mass Effect toy booth, they've already blown all their money on something else.

Well, luckily for you, consumer, Dark Horse Comics is looking out for you. They've opened a booth, Booth #2615 to be precise, where you can buy all the overpriced Dark Horse paraphernalia you like. Replica shields, dolls, 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, Dark Horse!

"Don't thank us," said Scott Allie, Dark Horse Editor in Chief. "We love money."

Below is a list of the Dark Horse exclusives available at the booth, along with about thirty images Dark Horse crammed into one jpeg like this is 1996 and they don't know to use the internet or something. Don't you have interns for that stuff, Dark Horse?.

Here's the press release:
