TOPPS COMICS #1
THE WORST OF 2016
Topps jumps into the Garbage Pail Kids Comic Book ring with their first issue titled THE WORST OF 2016 - a look back at some of the worst stories from 2016
Apparently having NOT learned a lesson from the lack of success for the IDW Comic Books, Topps decided to release their own Comics and sell them directly from their website.
(COMING SOON) This page provides a comprehensive look at Garbage Pail Kids Topps Comics #1, from advertising all the way to production. You can even flip through the entire comic book right here at geepeekay! Enjoy!
RELEASE DATE: January 13, 2017 (available for one week 1/13/17 through 1/20/17)
FEATURED ARTISTS: Pat Barrett, Joe Simko, Brent Engstrom
PROMO MATERIAL & ADVERTISING
Ever since Topps achieved success with their online exclusive offerings, their promotional efforts leave a little to be desired. Aside from an Email sent out to subscribers, and a Facebook post advertising the Comic, there wasn't really anything else out there to promote the product.
From the Topps Website:
GPK is ringing in the New Year by highlighting the worst of 2016! Follow classic GPKs “2016 Father Time” Grim JIM and “2017 Baby New Year” Nervous REX as they take a look back at the worst that 2016 had to offer!
Each Topps Comic comes with two exclusive sticker cards. The stickers can't be purchased separately and are only available with the purchase of the comic ($19.99 + S&H). For #1 the two sticker cards were numbered 1a and 1b, and were drawn by Joe Simko:
