SD09: Todd McFarlane

It’s official! McFarlane Toys and Todd McFarlane will be at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. The McFarlane Companies has expanded its presence at the con by teaming up with key retailers and partners. We plan to have exclusive action figures, comics, artist signings, giveaways, panels, a first look at upcoming figure lines and the chance to meet the man himself: Todd McFarlane.

The San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) will be held from July 23-26 at the San Diego Convention Center, San Diego, CA. This is the 40th anniversary of the Comic-Con and it looks to be the biggest and best convention ever.
