If Kevin Smith has proven anything to us, it’s that he knows comic books and movie trivia. He brings his knowledge of both media forms to SDCC this year thanks to Comixology’s trading card set.
This year’s third and final set features what they call “Heavy Hitters” – comic book writers and artists who have influenced Smith most throughout his career. According to EW, the Heavy Hitters cards will feature facts about the subject (works known for, base of operations, etc.) and are then followed by a fun little factoid. For example, Jim Lee’s Heavy Hitters card mentions that Lee studied medicine at Princeton before abandoning the field for a more artistic career.
Smith’s Heavy Hitters series include Laura Allred, Becky Cloonan, Geoff Johns, Jim Lee, Emma Ríos, and Bruce Timm. You can find them along with the rest of this year’s set at Comixology’s Booth #2547 at SDCC.
A full pack of the All Star Trading Cards, including Kevin Smith’s Heavy Hitters, will be given out at the Comic Book Movie Trivia panel on Thursday, July 20 from 5:30PM-6:30PM in Room 6A.
Here’s a look at the set:
You can also watch as some more heavy hitters take each other on in Smith’s Comic Book Movie Trivia panel, moderated by Smith and judged by Comixology’s CEO, David Steinberger.
