You may know Funko Pop! figures from the toy aisle, but in May there will be a reason to hit the comic book shop if you’re a fan of the big-headed and pint-sized stars.

May is Funko Universe Month — and there will be a number of variant covers and one-shots where the iconic stars of a few franchises will be found as Pop! figures on comics from IDW Publishing.

It’s a simple twist but it’s one that should get the attention of a new collectors.

There will be one-shot issues for Ghostbusters, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, The X-Files, Strawberry Shortcake and Judge Dredd.

The variation covers will be found for Back to The Future No. 20, Orphan Black: Deviations No. 3, Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency No. 8, Star Trek: Boldly Go No. 8, The Powerpuff Girls No. 1, Donald Duck No. 20, Mickey Mouse No. 20, Walt Disney’s Comics & Stories No. 738. (Buzz has dibs on Marty McFly.) Some will have more than one cover using actual toys, too.

The standard books appear to be 32-pagers at $3.99 a pop (no pun intended), while the one-shots are $4.99. A few of them can be seen in the gallery below.
