Comixology will be distributing “Comic Book All-Stars” trading cards at this year’s San Diego Comic Con.

Each card is emblazoned with the visage of a different comic creator, from Ms. Marvel writer G. Willow Wilson to Hellboycreator Mike Mignola to The Walking Dead mastermind Robert Kirkman.

“These collectible trading cards are a fun way to pay tribute to the amazing writers and artists whose creativity inspires and excites us all,” Comixology co-founder and CEO David Steinberger shared in a statement. “Whether you love superheroes, indies, graphic novels, all-ages adventures, manga, or all of the above like me, there’s never been a better time to discover new comics – and fall in love with the creators.”
