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.
Younger collectors may not know it, but there was a time when Topps published comic books and magazines
And that time is back with the first issue of Garbage Pail Kids issue No. 1 — “The Worst of 2016” — which is being sold only initially via Topps.com. The books are $19.99 with a pair of stickers (Grim Jim and Nervous Rex) also included. A discount is available for those buying five copies of the book. It will be printed to order just like its other recent online GPK releases, according to the company’s site.
