Skylanders Comes To GraniteCon 2014


Hey Addicts!

We have seen a lot of info come out as we get closer and closer to the big day. So many new things are being released with Trap Team I start sweating thinking about all the money I am about to shell out 😀 I am sure a lot of you are with me. I mean with traps, figures, starters, and if you are like me Topps, Mega Bloks stuff and now IDW Comics how will one keep up! I already have my plan for release day as I am sure most of you do. Well I got some really cool info to share with you all that are excited about the comic book series. As most of you already know Skylanders debuted the new comic book series by IDW at this years SDCC (San-Diego Comic Con) and it was a major hit! There were two variant covers of issue #0 one with a Convention Exclusive 2014 label in the left corner as you can see in the picture below…

The other variant cover does not include the same label here is what it looks like if you don’t already know…

I have had the opportunity of being able to grab one of these from SDCC and I love it! I still need to get the first cover, but I am already working on get it as we speak. Last week it came to my attention by way of fellow addict Kristina Silva that the Granite State Comic Con or GraniteCon held in Manchester, NH is going to have it’s own variant cover. This variant cover will be for issue #0 here is what it looks like…

From what it looks like there will be a lot of variant covers for this series. I plan on having them all including the hardcover copy available to pre-order online. I included a few pages from the comics in the gallery for those of you that have not seen it yet. Do you have issue #0? Will you be getting issue #1? If you do own it what do you think about the comics so far?Let me know in the comments. I personally enjoyed the comic book very much the artwork and storyline so far are great I can’t wait to see more.
