As a side note, this also marks the first time since 1975 that Comic-Con’s Souvenir Book has featured a wraparound cover (that cover featured Will Eisner’s The Spirit poolside at the El Cortez Hotel in San Diego). Click here to see all of our Souvenir Book covers over the past 50 years!
Comic-Con’s Souvenir Book is available free to all 2019 attendees (while supplies last). This 280-page, full-color, trade paperback book features a pictorial history of Comic-Con’s past five decades, featuring over 530 photos and artwork from the event’s past, along with special features, including an in-depth history of Comic-Con by Eisner Award-winning author Bill Schelly. The Souvenir Book is available onsite only at Comic-Con 2019, July 18–21 at the San Diego Convention Center.
Special thanks to DC, Marvel, Skybound, Todd McFarlane, Mike Mignola, IDW, and Nickelodeon for their help in making this incredible cover happen … and of course Jim Lee, Scott Williams, and Alex Sinclair!
