ReedPOP and DC Comics have unveiled the official New York Comic Con 2014 poster. Award-winning artist, Francis Manapul "takes Batman off the streets of Gotham city and casts his iconic image over a map of the five boroughs — the home of his creation in 1939." The exclusive poster will be featured across NYCC advertising, comic retail locations and as the NYCC ad within the DC books.
To me, it looks like Frank Miller's Batman from The Dark Knight Returns. That could make some sense with the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice film rumored to be partially based on that storyline.
Mezco Toyz is already rolling out some exclusives that you'll be able to find at this year's New York Comic Con. The NYCC Exclusive Son Of Frankenstein limited edition figure will be available at Booth #1855. It stands 9" tall and features ten points of articulation, as well as a genuine simulated fur tunic with cloth sleeves.
Only 500 pieces will be available worldwide. And if you're not going to NYCC, a small number of exclusives will be available to pre-order via Mezco's online shop beginning on August 22nd 2014.
