Launched in 2015 as an event to promote brick & mortar stores in the same way Record Store Day had boosted the music industry, Local Comic Shop Day 2018 will feature some of the most desirable exclusive items of the year, including the Donny Cates-written Marvel Knights 20th Steve McNiven sketch variant (just 500 copies available worldwide), the Power Rangers Blind Box that contains a chance for a print signed by the creators of the phenomenon, and many more!
