When it comes to Comic-Con International, even companies that specialize in digital comics have physical exclusives at their booths.

Take Comixology, for example. Attendees at SDCC 2015 will be able to stop by the company’s booth (#2547) every day of the show to find limited edition variants (500 copies each) of comics from multiple publishers — including Marvel, BOOM!, Valiant and IDW — covering a wide range of tastes. Not only that, but if you stop by and grab that day’s issue at the correct time, you’ll be able to get it signed by either the cover artist or members of its creative team.

Intrigued? We’ve got the details on which comics are available and who will on hand for autographs.

It’s a pretty sweet deal, unless you aren’t going to be in San Diego next month. Not to worry, though, as Comixology is thinking of the rest of us too. Digital versions of each comic will hit on the same day they are featured at Comic-Con, with the variant covers — and for the usual price. After the day is over, the digital variants will never be offered again. Yep, even digital comics can be limited editions.

Sure, your SDCC schedule is already packed, but you can make some time to swing by #2547. Your physical comic collection will thank you for stopping by this digital comics company’s booth.
