Comic-Con 2016 Souvenir Book Call for Submissions is Now Open!

Comic-Con International Souvenir Book

The 2015 Souvenir Book Cover featured the 75th Anniversary of Will Eisner's The Spirit. Art by Michael Cho. THE SPIRIT and WILL EISNER are Registered Trademarks of Will Eisner Studios, Inc.

The Comic-Con International Souvenir Book is a keepsake full-color trade paperback given 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 2015 Souvenir Book, shown at left, featured an exclusive cover by Michael Cho, commemorating the 75th anniversary of Will Eisner’s The Spirit.)

As in previous years, Comic-Con is accepting articles and artwork from professionals and fans alike, based on the anniversaries we’re celebrating this year (see below for a current listing). This is your chance to submit something for consideration in the book!
