You would think that by October, the end of Convention Season as we know it, publishers like IDW would be running out of exclusive covers and new titles to debut at cons. But you would be wrong. The dogged determination of the people who make comics should never be underestimated, and when they set up at Booth #1844 next weekend at New York Comic Con, IDW is going to have plenty to offer.

Variant covers include new covers for the newly released G.I. Joe #1 and Little Nemo: Adventures in Slumberland #1, but the convention will also see the debuts of two new Artist's Edition hardcovers, including one for classic Marvel Comics covers, and one collecting Watler Simonson's work at DC Comics, including his work on the seminal Manhunter alongside Archie Goodwin. So if anyone wants to pick me up something this year, that is what I want. C'mon, it's only $125. Check out the full list below.
