Comic-Con Series 3 — Topps company released an exclusive Jumbo (5 x 7) card set at the San Diego Comic Con in July of 2015 with 5 different characters from the same 10 different aforementioned countries each, for a total of 50 cards; the five characters being: OS1 Nasty NICK (pictured), ADAM Bomb, JASON Basin, New Wave DAVE and Spacey STACY. The 10 countries being The U.K./Australia/New Zealand/etc. (The Garbage Gang), Argentina/Chile (Basuritas), Brazil (Gang Do Lixo), France (Les Crados), Israel (Havurat Ha'zevel), Italy (Sgorbions), Japan (Bukimi Kun), Spain (La Pandilla Basura), Germany (Die Total Kaputten Kids) and Russia (Deti Otbrosy).



NOTE: Similar to the 2015S2 Foreign Legion Sticker set with 10 different images for characters released in 10 different countries over the past 30 years that were hobby box exclusive cards. The ten characters being: OS1 ADAM Bomb, OS1 GuilloTINA, OS3 Hurt CURT, OS3 Mugged MARCUS, OS4 NICKY Hickey, OS5 Handy RANDY, OS5 Diaper DAN, OS8 Explorin' NORMAN, OS10 ANN Chovie and OS13 Toilet BO.



Comic-Con Series 4 — The Topps company also released an exclusive Jumbo (5 x 7) card set at the New York Comic Con in October of 2015 with 5 different characters from the same 10 different countries each, for a total of 50 cards limited to 100 sets (52 cards including two misprints); the five characters being: OS1 Boozin' BRUCE, JAY Decay (pictured), KIM Kong, Bony JOANIE and Mean GENE. For the same 10 countries listed above. The five sets were also sold at Topps Online thoughtout November and December of the same year. NOTE: ALL SETS HAVE HAVE THE '30TH' LOGO ON THE BACKSIDE OF THE CARD WITH THE FOREIGN LEGION TITLE



Comic-Con one-off —The third iteration for the Topps Comic-Con JUMBO Card is CC13a Smilin' STAN completed by Mark Pingitore for the Comikaze Expo (the Facebook ad can be seen pictured further below). Concepts from various artists were turned in, and although all were done in very good taste, the least "offensive" one was picked, with a very 'nice' name (a good rhyme instead of an adjective works wells sometimes; ex. STAN The Man). At this stage, it's more of a CPK ad for Stan Lee at the Comikaze Expo that could have been named STAN Ding (a good name with wordplay); rather than a GPK parody. However, the artwork at hand still serves it's purpose and gets the point (and fun) across to convention-goers and collectors. The Topps P4 promo card of the same name was handed out at the same time the Jumbo card was available; however, it contains a dark blue namebar plate with white lettering.

RIOT FEST MUSIC FESTIVAL : CHICAGO

TOPPS LICENSED PRODUCT FOR PURCHASE



The 8-card 'Riot Fest' music festival set was available exclusively at the Riot Fest
show in Chicago for the dates of September 16-18, 2016





RiotFest.org: "Somehow the wonderful people at Topps approved Riot Fest to have its very own Garbage Pail Kids Series just in time for the festival next week in Chicago (Sept. 16-18). And we couldn’t be more thrilled. When we caught word that this would be actually happening, we immediately called some of our Riot friends to see if they’d be into having their own Garbage Pail Card. And within hours, Riot Fest Series One Garbage Pail Kids was born. And it’s fucking awesome. These exclusive cards will ONLY be available in limited quantities at Riot Fest Chicago. And, by limited, we mean limited. So, if you want a pack—which contains the entire series—be sure to visit the Riot merch area on Friday because something’s telling us they won’t make it past the day."



Unlike most Topps GPK releases these images had to be okayed by the artists and management so the process took a bit more time. Concepts and final artwork were created and painted by GPK artists Brent Engstrom, Joe Simko, David Gross and Mark Pingitore. Riot Fest submitted their own concepts for NOFX's 'Fat MIKE' (to be extra fat) and the 'Riot FESTUS' image, the Bitchin' Camaro car used to promote the festival that pays tribute to OS5 cards 205a Hot ROD and 205b BUD Buggy; which in turn is a GPK tribute to Ed Roth's Hot-Rod artwork.









PHILLY NON-SPORT CARD SHOW

TOPPS LICENSED PRODUCT FOR PURCHASE




2017 Topp Garbage Pail Kids/Wacky Packages Philly Set and Other Promo and Exclusive Cards including Tom Bunk's 'Wacky Garbageland' card, a George Wright brand mash-up and a new Melty Misfits promo from Maraschino Distribution. The 9-card parody set was available exclusively at the Philly Non-Sport Show in Allentown, PA for the dates of April 22-23, 2017. Pictured: Tom Bunk's final artwork, handed out on the second day, Sunday.




Beckett.com: "When it comes to events on the entertainment side of the hobby, the Philly Non-Sports Show is one of the biggest. It’s like the Non-Sport National. The theme for the April 22 and 23 show is Garbage Pail Kids and Wacky Packages. That theme carries over to both artist appearances and a set of nine exclusive GPK/Wacky Packages cards. Taking place at the Merchants Square Mall in Allentown, PA, non-sport dealers from across the country are in attendance. Collectors can also meet six artists from the worlds of Wacky Packages and Garbage Pail Kids. They include Neil Camera, Layron DeJarnette, Smokin’ Joe McWilliams, Chad Scheres, Joe Simko and Jeff Zapata. All six [arists] did artwork for the exclusive nine-card 2017 Philly Garbage Pail Kids/Wacky Packages set. It includes three different GPK gags, each with the traditional A/B name variations. The final three cards come from the Wacky world. Tying in with the show, each illustration and gag is connected to the hobby, offering jokes likely best understood by collectors. The cost of each set is $25. It’s only available at the show. Any extra sets that might be left over will not be sold. Proceeds from sales go towards helping pay for the guest artists’ accommodations and expenses." — Ryan Cracknell, April 21, 2017.






Picture above are cropped images of the final artwork for the three printed GPK characters along with the tight sketch of Zapata's Superman gag. Topps was unable or unwilling to print two DC-related characters within the same mini set so DeJarnette's original Batman concept was replaced with the printed Vegas Elvis parody instead. The Batman concept eventually found it's way within the 2018S1 'We Hate the 80s' set within the 'Movies' subset. Wacky Packages artist George Wright submitted a 50th WP anniversary card concept for the Philly GPK/WP mash-up set that contained the ADAM Bomb character dead center but was switched to ADAM's head on a serving tray by a WP character found to his left now wtih an exploding mushroom cloud above his head. Non-Sport Update, who still throws the bi-annual Philly shows and worked on the set, which includes Roxanne, Marline and Harris Toser, felt Topps would not approve these two initial ideas so went with Wright's third and final concept where ADAM is in a garbage can pressing the red-button next to the Wacky character. Becket Media acquired Non-Sport Update Magazine in 2016.

Instagram, 09/08/2017, "riot_fest ~ Riot Fest Garbage Pail Kids are back. This year, we have 10 new cards for you to collect and they'll only be available at Riot Fest. And yes, they're amazing." The 10-card 'Riot Fest' music festival set was available exclusively at the Riot Fest show in Chicago for the dates of September 15-17, 2017.











RiotFest.org: "Riot Fest Garbage Pail Kids are back. The wonderful people at Topps let us lampoon some of our favorite past and present Riot Fest bands again for Riot Fest Garbage Pail Kids Series Two. If you’ll recall, that’s when we brought you Garbage Pail Kids of Fat Mike, The Lawrence Harmed, Ray Gun, Mad Milo, Riot Festus, Awesome Andrew, Taking Back Tidal Wave, and GWAR Noir. This year, we have ten more to add to your collection. These exclusive cards—which you can peep below—will ONLY be available in limited quantities at Riot Fest Chicago. And by limited, we mean limited. So, if you want a pack—which contains the entire series—be sure to visit the Riot Fest merch area on Friday because something’s telling us they won’t last long."



Unlike most Topps GPK releases these images had to be okayed by the artists and management so the process took a bit more time. Concepts and final artwork were created and painted by GPK artists Brent Engstrom, Joe Simko, David Gross and Mark Pingitore. Riot Fest requested a concept for their 'Riot Beast' mascot and a 'Riot Feast' theme via Topps from the artist. Engstrom created a beast with a forked tongue for the first concept where Riot Fest had a 'regular', aleit very long, added and strumming lines were added to both the tongue and tail areas for the second, updated concept. Riot Fest had a lollipop sucker held by the beast added which was then changed to a slice of pizza seen within both color concepts ... after the final artwork was created, Riot Fest requested the lollipop once again, but Topps stated it was too late in production since the final artwork was already completed.





Artist David Gross worked Brent Engstrom's concept for card #6 'Rise Aghast' and Brent Engstrom completed Joe Simko's concept for card #10 "Riot Feast", in which both cards #9 and #10 contain a plethora of original series Garbage Pail Kids characters. Artist Brent Engstrom also submitted concepts for both Tim Armstrong and Fishbone, after similar concepts had already been approved by Topps for artists Joe Simko and David Gross whom completed the artwork for cards #4 'TIM Strong Arm' and #7 'FISHER Bone', respectively. Artist David Gross also submitted a Tim Armstrong (of Rancid) concept as well as a 'Riot Feast' concept, both rejected. A limited edition 'RIOT BEAST 2017' T-shirt ($25) and screened 'RIOT FEST' poster ($50) measuring 18x24 were available at the festival. All items were later avaible, including the limited edition 11-card set ($25), online through their website.

The artwork for the Hazardous HAND, Radioactive ROB and Heaving HAND were all created by artist PitchGrim who works as a graphic designer for Santa Cruz Skateboards and also takes on freelance work, finishing quite a line-up of work for many bands and brands. Both Hazardous HAND and Radioactive ROB are tributes to the popular ADAM Bomb GPK character, while Heaving HAND is a parody of the Santa Cruz masoct Screaming Hand.

NEW YORK COMIC-CON

TOPPS LICENSED PRODUCT FOR PURCHASE


With their license for Stranger Things, Topps received approval from Netflix to create a Stranger Kids GPK parody set to release at the New York Comic Con from October 4th through the 7th, 2018. The release, containing twenty cards from the A-name set and twenty cards from the B-name set, was also sold online through their website. The entire set was painted by artist Joe Simko who autographed cards at the NYCC on Saturday, October 6th. The A-name and B-name sets contained twenty different images for a total of 40 cards for the base card release. The NYCC also contained four exclusive cards, three Upside Down cards; three images from the base set cleverly turned upside down with a blue tint and slapped with a C-name and different nameplate color, and the title/poster card. Only one exclusive card per combo set could be obtained per purchase; a collector would need to spend $160 at the show to complete the entire set. The four exclusive cards were not available via online sales. A poster ad for the release was shared to their social media channels on October 1st, 2018 to promote the release. Artist Joe Simko re-watched seasons 1 and 2 of Stranger Things on Neflix prior to starting the project.



The hallucinating cards #8 were not supposed to have a logo or nameplate since there was one already painted onto the final artwork; Simko mock-up. The original tight pencil mock-up cards had a curved 'STRANGER KIDS' header that was switched to the banner-style header at the last minute before printing. Had the Matthew Modine concept not been approved due to image rights via Netflix an alternate 'Double DUFFER' concept was on standby, the OS2 tribute piece remains unpublished due to a delayed approval process; however, an unknown number of printed cards were handed out the first day of the NYCC and are extremely rare. Other tribute pieces include a scene from the E.T. movie, Hopper and a chain smoking OS1 characer by Pound, skateboarder 15a MAX Splat ('MADRID' on the skate deck is the skateboard company that creates official Stranger Things boards) that's an OS3 concept of PAT Splat by Tom Bunk, and card 13a Bye Bye BARB having the same milk carton as 2018S1 '80s History subset card 7a Milk CARLTON by Simko; pulled from the GPK Classic set, et cetera. The character nomenclature for cards Hallucinate EIGHT and Breakfast At ELEVEN match their corresponding card numbers, 8 and 11, respectively; Simko's idea, and the first unlucky victim received the unlucky 13 card number; idea by Topps. The original Demogorgon card image was much simpler in surroundings; Simko was asked to add Dungeon and Dragons artifacts into the piece.



NSU: 2018 Topps Stranger Kids mashes up a pair of '80s worlds, one mondern interpretation (Stranger Things) and the other, a piece of the decade's pop culture fingerprint (Garbage Pail Kids). The mini set debuted at New York Comic Con a few weeks before Topps' main Stranger Things set arrived. Stranger Kids has two different sets of 20 cards, which are GPK interpretations of key Stranger Things characters. The split sets come in the form of separate but similar A/B name variations. After NYCC, sets were also offered through the Topps website. In addition to the main set, bonus cards were also available at NYCC. For those who bought the A and B sets at the show, collectors got an extra card not offered through the website. 2018 Topps Stranger Kids is fully licensed by Netflix. Vol 29, No. 6 Dec/Jan 2019



Besides the Stranger Kids parody card release at NYCC and online, a Netflix Stranger Things and Topps GPK mash-up set, the Topps Company also handed out an exclusive Saturday-only promo card for their 'Oh, the Horror-ible' release from the Classic Film Monster subst for card image 10a JACK Lagoon painted by artist Brent Engstrom. Artist JOE Simko also signed a NYCC-specific autograph card for an hour on Saturday, Oct 6th for his artwork image for the '80s Horror subset card 10a Creep-JOE which kept the nomenclature within the nameplate. For more information and final artwork images on the set please visit the '2018 Online Sets' section.

1 of 4 Pumpkin HEDDY — Final: JOE Simko / Concept: ROXANNE Toser


PNS Exclusive Promo Cards

The Non-Sport Philly Card Show took place in Allentown, PA during the weekend of October 20th and 21st and included two official Topps cards printed for the Saturday night dinner as exclusive promos. A Garbage Pail Kids character painted by artist JOE Simko and Wacky Packages product painted by artist FRED Wheaton, both being a tribute to the Topps parody brands and the theme of the Fall show. 100 cards of each title were printed and could not be sold but had to be handed out at the dinner as exlusives only, per Topps. The Fall Hallowe'en-themed cards are numbered 1 of 4 and 2 of 4 and the May 2019 Spring Flower-themed cards were numbered 3 of 4 and 4 of 4, GPK and Wacky, respectively.


2 of 4 CREEPS — Final: FRED Wheaton / Concept: ROXANNE Toser & input by RENEE Davis


Showrunner ROXANNE Toser w/ artist JOE Simko; NOTE: Final artwork with solid white background.

Both titles had to be reviewed by Topps and their lawyers; the Wacky held up the process, interestingly, it was asked whether the CREEPS faces were based off of any real-life people; they weren't. Fun fact: Pumpkin HEDDY's face can be found in the WP CREEPS product and vice versa, the CREEPS candy name can be located within the GPK's head pail; Roxanne Toser wanted the two parody brands to play off of each other and be inter-connected. A third exclusive dinner card was created by artist TOM Bunk but printed by the Philly Non-Sport (PNS) show whom also printed two additional GPK-related promo cards handed out to all attendees on both Saturday and Sunday. The final artwork pictured below is for Bunk's OS8 cannibal-character tribute with its original nameplate along with an early mock-up image for the reverse card back.


NOTE: Artwork by Artist TOMAS Bunk — Text by AARON J. Booton



NOTE: Artwork by Artist BRENT Engstrom — Text by AARON J. Booton

The first promo card for all attendees was a Ghostbusters parody piece by artist BRENT Engstrom which paid specific tribute to the Tosers who took over organizing for the show in 2012 and have been instrumental within the non-sport card community for several decades, starting out with a mail-order business and then publishing the Non-Sport Update collector magazine. The social-media promotional ad is pictured above along with an early mock-up image for the reverse card back and text. The second promo card was a Pan's Labyrinth parody piece by artist MARK Pingitore for his forthcoming Magic Marker Art Horrorible Kids Series 4 release in 2019. The Tosers had asked me if I would give writing the reverse card-back text a shot for the Bunk and Engstrom cards, which was a huge honor.

The Spring Flower-themed cards are numbered 3 of 4 and 4 of 4 and the Oct 2018 Fall Hallowe'en-themed cards were numbered 1 of 4 and 2 of 4, GPK and Wacky, respectively.


4 of 4 CREEPS — Final: Chenduz / Concept: ROXANNE Toser + AARON Booton



FINAL Artwork : Leg Removed; Rain Added — Digital Pee Removed

Both titles had to be reviewed by Topps and their lawyers; the GPK held up the process due to the 'golden shower' concept of the flower getting peed on by the canine. The final artwork for the GPK has the dog leg removed and digital rain added; the pee was also digitally added in case Topps did not choose that version. Fun fact: MAY Flowers' face can be found in the WP OLD PETAL product and vice versa, the OLD PETAL worms can be located within the GPK's foreground; Roxanne Toser wanted the two parody brands to play off of each other and be inter-connected. A third exclusive dinner card was created by artist TOM Bunk but printed by the Philly Non-Sport (PNS) show whom also printed three additional GPK-related promo cards handed out to all attendees on both Saturday and Sunday. The final artwork pictured further below is for Bunk's potted plant GPKid(s) without a nameplate (for this character) along with reverse card back and text.

The social-media promotional ad is pictured above along with the reverse card back and text; this particular promo is card '1b' with a different background, nomenclature and reverse card text to go with the October 2018 '1a' promo card. The second promo card was a Edward Scissorhands parody piece by artist MARK Pingitore for his forthcoming Magic Marker Art Horrorible Kids Series 4 release in 2019.

A limited number of 'puzzle' cards will be available each day of Comic Con, including Preview Night.

"San Diego Comic Con is all about having fun and celebrating fan passion", says Ira Friedman, head of Global Licensing for Topps. "We hope that our 'scavenger hunt' provides fans with an opportunity to meet up and connect with other members of the Garbage Pail Kids community and share their common interest and enthusiasm," says Friedman.

Don’t worry, you don’t have to be a Jobe Globe to find these puzzle pieces, we’ve got them right here for you: [LIST]. You won’t want to dilly-dally like a Lazy Louie though. A limited number of “puzzle” cards will be available each day of Comic-Con, including Preview Night, and only a total of 500 cards per participating GPK partner will be distributed and only while supplies last. These cards are free of charge, something sure to make all the Cheap Chucks happy. Now go get those cards, ya Slobby Robbie!"

The San Diego Comic Con (aka Comic-Con International) show took place on Thursday, July 21 & 22 and ran through Sunday, July 24, 2022, at the San Diego Convention Center. The 9-card promotional puzzle, provided by Topps, was available from nine different GPK license holders attending the weekend-long event. Each licensee received 500 promo cards to hand out to attendees to help promote the GPK brand, especially since Topps was not set up at the show. The nine different puzzle pieces created one large image created by artists Chris Meeks, hot off of attending the Philly Non-Sport show in May. The artwork is clean on the front, with no GPK header or acronym, and contains information on the back about the license holder.

On July 11, 2022, Topps shared the image with the SDCC Blog and GPK website authors. Per SDCC Blog, the write-up stated: "Happy Garbage Day all you Nerdy Nicoles and Geeky Garys! The gross kids at Topps have exclusively revealed to us the full image that you’ll be able to make if you participate in the Topps x Garbage Pail Kids Trading Card Hunt at San Diego Comic-Con 2022.
You’ll need to visit nine different booth inside the exhibit hall to collect all pieces of this puzzle. A limited number of puzzle cards will be available each day of Comic-Con, including Preview Night, and only a total of 500 cards per participating GPK partner will be distributed and only while supplies last, so don’t be a Lazy Louie, go get those cards! Now let’s take a look at this exclusive image, created by GPK artist Chris Meeks."

NOTE: The giveaway program will begin on Preview Night (Wed. July 20) and will continue throughout Sunday the 24th, while limited supplies last. All 9 participating partners have been provided with suggested giveaway allotments, on a daily basis, in order to hopefully satisfy interest/demand throughout all days of the show.
