Wal-Mart has been trying to get into the comic sales for a while. They started with $5 comic packs, I did a Unbagging Video here. From there, they got into the DC reprint packs, that featured a special printing of recent #1 comics, plus a few other comics in the packs as well. It seems that DC has continued the relationship with War-Mart by releasing a special DC Showcase Magazine in Walmart stores.
Stan T. Says:
Saw these today, they just were released in Walmart. They are for sale in the card section with the prepackaged bags of comics. There are four covers, but the insides are all the same. Reprints of both Rebirth and New 52 material. Three are recycled DC covers, but the fourth is a Gal Godot photo cover.
And yes, as advertised, it’s under $10….$9.98 cover price. They all are square-bound on glossy paper, no ads other than some D.C. House ads. I don’t know how these will sell, seems pricey for a comic book and at 128 pages, it is no trade paperback.
Thanks to Stan T. for sending this one over.
