On the Lightning Strike Comic Books Facebook page they have announced that they will be selling a 80th Anniversary Comic at the Dublin Comic Con on August 6th and 7th.
It does say that you have to be present to receive a comic with no online sales. If we at Chronicle Chamber find a way around it or find someone who will be there (hint hint Joe who now lives in England) we will let you know. We will also let you know when we see anymore information about the comic including sneak peaks etc.
From their Facebook page:
