Each person who attends will receive the “ultra-rare” exclusive variant of the Dave Gibbons Watchmen: Artifact Edition, with only 25 copies ever made available, specifically for this event. The cover of the variant features a painting by Gibbons of Rorschach.

Attendees will also enjoy a fine meal in a private dining room in downtown San Diego an an undisclosed location and time, where Gibbons will also be signing the limited books and doing a small head sketch in each. A photographer will be on hand to document the evening.

Tickets are $500 before fees, and and available on IDW’s website.

For those who don’t want to spend quite that much, the regular version – which features 100 story-page scans all shot from Gibbons original art, will be available at the IDW Publishing Booth #2643.
