Comic-Con 2015: Marvel Pins Down The Fans

Since Disney owns Marvel, this was only a matter of time. If you’ve been in any gift shop in one of the Disney parks, you’ve seen the collectible pins festooning the walls, the cast members, and many, many parkgoers.

And now, at #SDCC, you’re going to see very similar enamel pins on attendees. Because Marvel has just won the cuteness game.

Taking Skottie Young’s art and putting it on pins that are sold only at the Marvel booth… you thought that place was crazy before.

This is madness. And I’m already planning which ones I want, because Marvel very helpfully sent along a checklist.

And some people want this convention to move to Vegas? No one would have ANY money left…
