Bongo has a ton of goodies to share with our fans at Comic-Con this year.

• Every four years, athletes from all around the world compete to uphold the spirit of competition and the test the limits of human ability and endurance. And this the year that Bart Simpson  to write a report all about it. Have you ever wondered how the ancient Olympic games began, or what sports Olympians first competed in, or why athletes competed in the nude? Well, Bart has all the answers to those questions and many more. We’re not saying he’s right, but when has that stopped him? We're offering Bart’s unique appreciation of the ancient Olympics with The Simpsons Go for the Gold. This book is only available at the San Diego Comic-Convention International (and may not be available for another four years) with signed copies by Matt Groening available on a limited basis for $20 and unsigned copies for $10.

• Finally, Coldplay fans are in for a special treat. Bongo has teamed up with the band and Mark Osborne (Kung Fu Panda) to present a six-issue miniseries that tells the epic story behind the story of the platinum-selling album Mylo Xyloto. We've got the very first issue months before the series debuts, complete with a variant cover that won't be available in stores. Get it and you might find yourself “dreaming of paradise.” ($5) We'll have more info on this special project in the next few days!
