We just announced the anniversary themes for our 2016 Souvenir Book (click here to see them, and your chance to contribute art and articles) and that occasion always gets us thinking about the book’s cover. While we can’t reveal this year’s cover subject or artist just yet (check back sometime after WonderCon for that info), we thought it would be fun to look back over the entire history of Comic-Con’s Program and Souvenir Books.
