All The Exclusive Art Prints At San Diego Comic Con 2016
One of the highlights of every San Diego Comic Con is the abundance of awesome and exclusive art prints that you can pick up on site that aren't available anywhere else. There's so many that it's tough to choose which ones you want to snag!. Even worse, you might miss the announcement of one you really want in the deluge of Comic Con news. In order to help you decide which new exclusive art prints you should take home with you from this year's event (or to give you a taste of what you're missing if you're not there), we've put together a list of just some of the coolest art available only at this year's San Diego Comic Con.
Grant Morrison's 'The Multiversity 'Annotations, Part 1
Teased for years and finally launched this week, The Multiversity is a universe-jumping series of DC Comics one-shots tracking the cosmic monitor Nix Uotan and an assemblage of star-crossed heroes as they attempt to save 52 universes and beyond from a trippy cosmic existential threat that, like much of Morrison’s best work, represents something far more mundane and relatable.

Three pages into the preview for The Multiversity #1, I knew I was going to have a lot to work with. With no further ado, go get your erasers and your textbooks, close your laptops, sharpen your pencils, and get ready for some course notes. Let's go to school.
