Now here’s a mashup that no one saw coming!

Straight out of Comic-Con International: San Diego (SDCC) comes word that the iconic Garbage Pail Kids (GPK) are coming together with Kevin Smith‘s View Askewniverse for the 2023 Topps GPK x View Askew trading card set.

There are 40 base cards to collect, each inspired by a character from Smith’s films, including Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy, Dogma, and more.

Fans can look for boxes at the Mooby’s Pop-Up location at SDCC this weekend, grab a few from the Topps website, or keep an eye out for future drops at Jay and Silent Bob’s Secret Stash and select hobby shops across the U.S.

Each box includes six packs, each with four cards per pack.

Just like the GPK stickers and cards of the past, select cards feature an image on the back that can be used to complete a Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes puzzle. See the full checklist here.
