Dark Horse has announced they will be bringing several variant covers and limited edition convention exclusives to next weekend’s WonderCon Anaheim.
If you’re a Buffy or Angel fan, you’re in luck. They’ll have a Buffy Season 10 #1 variant cover by Tomb Raider art director Brian Horton. Or if Angel & Faith is your thing, a Season 10 #1 variant by Steve Morris will be available. Both are limited to 1,000 copies and will be sold for $5 each.
If you’re more of a gamer, you’ll be able to pick up The Last of Us: American Dreams, a hardbound collection of the comics that lead into last year’s Game of the Year. This collection will debut at PAX East this weekend and will only be available in “very limited quantities” during WonderCon. Or, pick up a special cover variant of The Witcher, with all proceeds to benefit Usagi Yojimbo Stan Sakai and his wife Sharon.
Lastly, Mike Mignola fans won’t want to leave without picking up the limited-edition hardover Itty Bitty Hellboy![portfolio_slideshow id=13341]
