Quirk Books, publisher of all things awesome, geeky and unprecedented has just announced its SDCC signing schedule and giveaway slate along with a very nostalgic way to get your merch. The Philadelphia publisher is known best for titles like Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, The Last Policeman, Geekerella and beloved adaptations like Pride and Prejudice and Zombies as well as William Shakespeare’s Star Wars. 

This year, Quirk Books has got its own online pop-up ready for continental US residents who AREN’T at SDCC but are still eager to drop some cash on their books and merchandise. Like they’ve announced in the tweet below, fans can look for con-exclusive books and even a tote bag, handy for carrying around all those extra goodies. Even more importantly, though, is Quirk Books’ “new way to get swag.” The publisher has set up a gumball machine full of “prizes ranging from discounts to ARCs to items from other vendors we love.”

Meanwhile, people behind the books themselves will make appearance at Quirk Books’ SDCC Booth #1636 all weekend long. Fans can bring along their own books (or buy some!) for signings from authors including Clay Chapman, Sam Maggs and Ashley Poston. These creators will also participate in panels and live readings throughout the con. If you’re eager to meet one of these authors, or just hear their words, we’ve got Quirk Books’ full schedule below, along with locations.
