IDW is local to San Diego – which means that Comic-Con is a home-grown convention for them, and as such, fans can always expect them to go all out. This year, IDW is rolling out their hottest exclusives that mash up some of your favorite pop culture icons from the 1980’s.
If you’re looking to purchase They Called Us Enemy, the George Takei graphic memoir, you can pre-order it now for pick-up at the convention. You can order it hardcover, or signed and numbered.
