Wait, where’s THIS lot been hiding?! Comic-Con International has released a range of official merchandise for their con that isn’t happening / live streaming event that’s in its place – and it’s ALL awesome!
SDCC@HOME will be running over the weekend that would have seen San Diego Comic-Con taking over the Convention Center (Thursday 23rd – Sunday 26th July; Preview Night, Wednesday 22nd July) and on that Wednesday, the online store will open and fans will be able order a bunch of really, really cool apparel that they’ll just have to wear at home for a year and have a little tear roll their cheek over.
But seriously, gang, check this stuff out! Woven-in socks with the SDCC logo! A varsity fleece zip hoodie which, if you wore it in San Diego, you’d sweat your tits off in! Sharp enamel pins that would have come in your badge boxes I’m not crying you’re crying!! COMIC-CON DICE!!! A really cool ‘Front Of / End Of Line’ shirt which nobody outside of your SDCC buddies will get the reference of!!!!
It’s all really great gear which will bankrupt you completely if you’ve been spending your con budget on things like food and rent during pandemic lockdown. But if you do have any of those hoarded funded left over, you could do a lot worse than snap up some of this cool merch.
The store can be found at https://store.comic-con.org/ which is up and running now for Comic-Con Museum merch and some legacy tees that they’ve found in a box down the back of the office – the new gear itself goes live at 12pm Midday (3pm ET / 8pm GMT) on Wednesday 22nd July. It says while supplies last’ so you may have to move sharpish to nab your ‘ultra stretch fabric buff headwear bands’…
