Topps will return to Comic-Con International in July after a long absence. The company has just recently announced their plans, which include Garbage Pail Kids exclusives and Mars Attacks promo cards.

Topps will be found at Comic-Con at Atomic Toybox Entertainment’s booth (#4120). The company promises fans will find the latest Topps collectibles and trading cards for sale: Star Wars, Doctor Who, WWE, Skylanders, Garbage Pail Kids, Mars Attacks, and Wacky Packages.

The company seems most excited to announce their plans for Garbage Pail Kids exclusives. A new GPK character called “Comic Conner” will make his first appearance at the show in the form of a limited-edition t-shirt ($20) and an an exclusive CCI promo card (available on a first-comic, first-served basis).

Also exclusive to the show are a set of 11 x 14 jumbo Garbage Pail Kids trading card prints, featuring six popular GPK characters including “Comic Conner.” The jumbo card prints will be priced at $10 each or all six for $40.

Topps has offered exclusive Mars Attacks promo cards at Comic-Con the past couple of years and they will do so once again. But you’ll have to do some work to track them all down. In total, nine connecting puzzle cards will be found. Start off at the Topps booth and pick-up your first card. Look on the back to find the next exhibitor offering a Mars Attacks promo card. Repeat process until you have the full set. Or if you find this too cumbersome, pull up the Mars Attacks Facebook page for a complete list of exhibitors. The cards feature all-new art by Chad McCown.

And finally, Topps has announced an exclusive Mars Attacks vs. Presidential Monsters two-pack will be found at the Heroes in Action (booth 3450). The two-pack figure set features a martian soldier facing off with “Baracula,” one of Heroes In Action’s popular characters.
