Where to Find Super 8 and Rocket Poppeteers Comics

by Dan Koelsch

To help promote Paramount Pictures’ Super 8, two short form comic books have been created. The Rocket Poppeteers comic has been known for a while, and now we know where you can find them. Also, you can get the recently discovered Super 8 comic now, and without paying for it (directly).

While some of this may not be completely new, we haven’t discussed how to get your hands on these comics. First of all, the Rocket Poppeteers comic is available as part of the film’s sponsorship deal with 7-Eleven. When you buy a promo Slurpee cup, you get a code that you can enter here to get a digital copy of the comic. There are some other Super 8 related promotions from the convenience store chain, including a Rocket Poppeteers popsicle.

The Super 8 comic, which we previously noted is available for pre-order on Amazon, but now Shock Till You Drop reveals you can get it for free if you purchase another comic book.

If you stopped by the comic shop today and picked up any of DC’s “Flashpoint” titles, you may have found a surprise waiting for you in the middle. Right at the center staple is a twelve-page “Super 8” comic (strangely titled “35mm Special Issue” in the Indica).

Since I haven’t bought a slurpee or comic book in a long time, I haven’t read either Super 8 comic, but if you have, let us know what you thought of them, and what clues they may offer!
