Home Con News SDCC 2018: San Diego Comic-Con Exclusives Portal opens tomorrow, with Matt Taylor...

This couldn’t be more suited to Our Cup O’ Tea if it tried – Comic-Con International have announced that they will be opening up the Exclusives Portal of attendees Member ID’s with a convention exclusive from acclaimed prestige prints retailer Mondo, with artwork from our own Matt Taylor!

The Brighton-based illustrator has already been announced as a SDCC Special Guest, no doubt featuring at the Autograph tables and possibly on a featured panel, but now he really hits the Comic-Con audience with a bold and bombastic eight-colour Marvel Cinematic Universe silkscreen print, featuring all of your favourite heroes from across the franchises. Yes, even Hawkeye!

The design – celebrating ten years of the MCU – will also feature on the cover of this years Souvenir Book cover, which means pretty much everybody walking through the doors of the convention will be taking a little bit of Matt Taylor home with them. (Here at AEISD, we’ll be doing our best to lay our lands on a couple of issues for Matt to sign as competition prizes, after the show. Watch this space…)

The Exclusives Portal – as first reported by The SDCC Unofficial Blog – will be accessible from attendees Member ID pages on the CCI website as of Friday 1st June, with no determined time of opening; ‘interest’ has to be submitted by 12pm Midday on Thursday 7th June (8pm GMT), so expect the Portal launch to be around the same time.

The term ‘interest’ has grabbed a bunch of people’s, erm, interest as, while you may put in your details to grab one of these beauties, 1,000 lucky eligible attendees will be selected at random ‘on or around June 12, 2018’, so if you participate in the Portal, you’re not guaranteed to get your sticky mitts on one. It’s all in the lap of the gods.

Still, you have to be in it to win it so, if you are planning on taking part, all the very best of luck to you. (Not too much luck, mind. I want one! I’m British! There should be a ‘preferential treatment’ tick box!!)

EDIT: a separate Toucan Blog post shows the Souvenir Guide cover in all of its glory:

Comic-Con is pleased to have partnered with Mondo for our 2018 Souvenir Book cover, which features the 10th anniversary of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, illustrated by artist Matt Taylor. New this year, we are excited to release the Souvenir Book cover as an exclusive print!

The 8-color, silkscreen print is 24” wide by 36” tall, presented on 100 lb. paper, and is of the highest quality. Each print is numbered by the printer, and signed by the artist!

Only those with a Comic-Con 2018 attendee badge associated with their Comic-Con Member ID account are eligible to participate. You must also be age 13 or older to participate. Eligible attendees may submit interest beginning June 1, 2018. The deadline to submit interest in purchasing a Mondo print is June 7, 2018 at 12:00 PM (noon) PDT.

As an exciting and special note, a predesignated amount of the print-run will be reserved for fundraising for the forthcoming Comic-Con museum in San Diego’s Balboa Park.

Previous Mondo prints have sold out instantly online. This is the first-ever print Comic-Con has offered for purchase, and it is sure to be an amazing collector’s item. We strongly encourage eligible members to submit interest well before the deadline.
