Oni Press, one of the best independent publishers you’ll find on the San Diego Comic-Con exhibit floor, have just announced their exclusive offerings for this year’s event. Attendees can stop by Booth #1833 during the convention to score three exclusive items – including a Rick and Morty: Lil’ Poopy Superstar #1 variant that’s an official SDCC exclusive, meaning the only place you’ll be able to get your hands on it is at the Oni Press booth.
The other two items, Fresh Romance V1 and Jeff Steinberg #1, will be available later for sale in stores (August 10 and August 3, respectively) – though attendees will be able to get their hands on them first at the convention. With Comic-Con favorite names attached to these variants, like Katie Cook and Babs Tarr, you’ll want to scoop these up.
Let’s take a look at this year’s offerings:
