While Comic-Con isn’t always about comic books these days, there are plenty of products that show up related to them. When you have a brand new pinball machine that’s about one of the more popular comic franchises around, its common sense that it should be on hand. As such, Stern Pinball is going to be at their second San Diego Comic Con tomorrow, showing off X-Men pinball while also running a cash prize tournament that will culminate on Saturday. For those interested in the details, here’s the press release below.
