Committed Comics has been exhibiting at San Diego Comic-Con for more than 20 years, since they officially formed in 2000. The independent comics publisher has a growing roster of creators and alumni that include visionary artists like Camilla d’Errico and Dustin Weaver, and they’re always doing something fun.
This year, we’ve partnered with for a special giveaway… and more details to be announced soon, but make sure you’re following them on Twitter @CommittedComics.
You can find them at Small Press #L-09 on the show floor, where they’ll have exclusives, signings, and more.
[UPDATE July 7]
We are excited to announce that the San Diego Comic-Con Unofficial Blog (that’s us!) has teamed up with Committed Comics to bring you Adventures of Prize Mule trading cards! These collectible cards feature series one of the Prize Mules (and one very special Prize Dragon), with fun facts about each.
To get your hands on them, you will either have to win one through an Adventures of Prize Mule drop during the convention (follow along with our Twitter @SD_Comic_Con), or you can stop by Committed Comics Small Press #L-09. At their booth, they will be giving away a card each day while supplies last, but you’ll need to follow along with their Twitter @committedcomics for that day’s special phrase.
If you want to catch Gary the Prize Dragon, he will be free with purchase, while supplies last — because Gary believes that the best things in life are not free.
