The Comic-Con International Souvenir Book is a keepsake full-color trade paperback given to FREE to all attendees (while supplies last). The book features bios and photos of each year's special guests, plus articles and art created by fans and pros devoted to our anniversary celebrations. It also functions as a kind of "Yearbook" for the show, featuring Eisner Award winners from the past year and current nominees, Hall of Fame inductees and tributes to those popular arts creators who have passed away in the previous year.

The 2013 edition's cover was created exclusively for Comic-Con by special guest Dave McKean, and celebrated the 25th anniversary of Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman series. The fan-favorite series started in late 1988 with its first story arc drawn by Sam Kieth, with numerous artists to follow in its 75-issue run. Besides Gaiman, one other constant throughout the series was cover artist Dave McKean, who created beautiful, ethereal images through painting, collage, and construction that set the tone for the story inside. Dave’s style of cover art was unseen in the world of comics up to that point.
