  • Vault Comics posted on Twitter that they will have freebies for Twitter followers as well as exclusives available for sale at their Comic-Con booth #1530.

  • Tokidoki front man Simone Legno posted on Instagram a picturing of a Tokidoki Iron Maiden mashup shirt coming to Comic-Con.

I am very happy to announce #Tokidoki X IRON MAIDEN collaboration tee shirt previewing at San Diego Comic con! As a guy that grew up with pasta and Rock in any form (Metal, Punk, hardcore, emocore, and bunch of brutal stuff) it was a true joy and honor when during my last trip in London I was requested to design this project. Iron Maiden are not just popular for their legendary music but even for their outstanding cover art and iconography that definitely became part of the global pop culture. I definitely gotta save a couple for my friends pop culture fanatics @vampybitme and @joshlbarnett that I both spotted very recently rocking Iron Maiden's tees on Instagram.( the first one is definitely a bit better as a model…). PS-A Master Nerd like you Josh will b missed this year at SDCC. Good luck with your training! 💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀 @tokidokibrand #ironmaiden #trooper #popcupture #rock #metal #music #art #vectorart #sdcc #comiccon #comicon #design #fashion #vector #teeshirt #kawaii #manga #anime #comics #adios #unicorn #unicorno
