Get your FUNKO on this May! The insanely popular Pop! vinyl figures have successfully reshaped the collectibles landscape and are now primed to take comics by storm in a special month-long event from IDW Publishing. FUNKO and IDW are combining forces to bring fans FUNKO-ized versions of some of the most recognizable and beloved characters in all of pop culture.

Funko Universe Month will feature some of the most sought after Pop! vinyl figures coming to life in five off–the-wall one-shots courtesy of IDW’s creative stable: GHOSTBUSTERS, TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES, THE X-FILES, STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE, and JUDGE DREDD.

“FUNKO’s popularity is off the charts, and IDW is excited to bring these characters to life in comic book fashion,” said Greg Goldstein, President and COO, IDW Publishing. “We’re thrilled to expand our relationship with FUNKO with this unique event.”

“Funko collectibles began in comic book shops. We’re thrilled to get back to our roots in this one-of-a-kind collaboration!” said Ben Butcher, Vice President of Creative, Funko.

The fun of FUNKO UNIVERSE MONTH will also extend beyond the core titles above to include special variant covers for Back to the Future #20, Orphan Black: Deviations #3, Dirk Gently: The Salmon of Doubt #8, Star Trek: Boldly Go #8, The Powerpuff Girls: The Time Tie #1, Donald Duck #20, Mickey Mouse #20, Walt Disney’s Comics & Stories #738, all hitting comic shops this May.

    You do know the picture is a SDCC Stealth Ninja turtles 4-pack made by The loyal Subjects, right? I mean i’m not mad it’s just that when people go to find these and end up with actual Funko POPs, they’re gonna be disappointed.
