The AsiaPOP Comicon has been a launchpad, or at the very least a liberally curated space to create more buzz, for exclusive or unique merchandise and gaming gear. Here are Super’s favorites.
What: Quality knickknacks and useful collectibles printed with images of Captain Barbell, Darna and Lastikman, including a new range of designs that feature the Pinoy superheroes as cute and child-friendly.
What: It’s called Gamespecs, limited-edition eyewear that’s meant to prevent eyes from drying up and reduce glare and eye fatigue. Its frames are a throwback to the 1990s Italian comics “Diabolik.” There’s also Antepara, a trendy set of eyewear which doubles as gamer specs, in sleek colored frames.
