SDCC 2014: Dark Horse Comics reveals first round of exclusives

Dark Horse fans are going to have a lot to buy at this year’s SDCC.

The publisher always puts on a great show for comic book conventions and there are usually more than a few things on their list that fans just can’t leave the show grounds without. This year though, they seem to really be amping up the coolness with stuff from a whole bunch of properties (including Star Wars). And this isn’t even the complete list!

Between now and the show date, Dark Horse will also be putting out notice of exclusive items from their Game of Thrones lineup- so keep your fingers crossed as to what that might be. But while you won’t find any GoT here today, you will find the biggest assortment of exclusive items the company has ever put forth for a show- and the prices are pretty darned reasonable too. I was actually a little shocked at some of them and I think those Captain Midnight and Hellboy in Hell volumes are gonna have to come home with me.

So have a peek, make your notes as to what you’ll be targeting, and then sit tight because that Game of Thrones announcement should be along any day now… Oh, and as always, get there early if you want any of they stuff. SDCC exclusive stuff isn’t exactly known to hang around if you know what I mean.
