Dark Horse Comics announces exclusive merchandise for NYCC 2018



Game of Thrones, Umbrella Academy, Starcraft and more.

Today Dark Horse Comics announced their exclusive merchandise for New York Comic Con and spoiler alert, it’s awesome! The Umbrella Academy has a slew of cool stuff, including an exclusive convention variant and American Gods may just have some good luck in store for you (while supplies last anyway).

Dark Horse will also have a plethora of talented creators signing books and showing off their new projects, so be sure to head over to their booth. If you’d like to pick up any of the awesome goodies Dark Horse is slinging, or you just have to get your copy of Stranger Things #1 signed, you can find them at booth #1636.

Alright you Umbrella Academy fans, take a deep breath because there’s some amazing stuff available this year. You can get your hands on a copy of a NYCC exclusive, The Umbrella Academy: Hotel Oblivion #1, with cover art by Mike Mignola, an Umbrella Academy crest t-shirt and a Hazel and Cha Cha enamel pin.

I smell a crow.

You don’t dress like a crow and you don’t mess with Jon Snow. Follow those rules and Tormund Giantsbane won’t open a can of whoop-ass on you. Now that that’s out of the way, feast your eyes on this gorgeous Tormund statue, with incredible detail. You can go home with one of the greatest Wildlings of all-time and a Dothraki map marker to track Daenrys’ khalasar.

For all of us who need a little extra luck in our lives, Dark Horse has us covered. Mad Sweeney’s lucky coin is available and you can also go home with a Christian Ward American Gods: My Ansel #1 variant exclusive.

Jody Houser is KILLING IT in the land of adaptations. I can’t think of another writer who’s done as good a job as she has in bringing video games and television shows into the realm of comics — with original stories no less. Find out what happened to Mike in the Upside Down while his friends and family searched for him in Stranger Things #1.

Good news Blizzard fans, you don’t have to wait until BlizzCon to get your StarCraft fix. StarCraft: Scavengers follows a group of terran space scavengers as they work to pull off the job of a lifetime in pillaging a derelict protoss ship.
