Even though it really wasn’t unexpected, the death of Stan Lee has hit me harder than I thought. He was the first comic book creator I ever saw by face. He inspired me to both read and eventually create comics myself. He gave my first raise and always took the time at conventions to come over and say hello to me. At one time he said he regarded me as a nephew ...

    DC Comics
    Walmart Giants #3 is out - I'm having a hard time finding them because dealers/comic store owners are still buying them all up to resell at double or triple the price.

    NOTE: "Merchandising Vehicle DO NOT REMOVE" sticker now on the DC Boxes.





    Some thoughts on the Walmart 100-Page Giants

    posted Jul 7, 2018, 6:17 PM by Vu Nguyen

    From Vu

    I've had a chance to read some of my Walmart 100-Page Giants and can let you know some of my thoughts on them. First of all, I think this is a good start on trying to get comics in traditional stores (outside of comic book stores), although it seems like it's a decade too late.

    Comic store owners are complaining that now Walmart will be taking $5-$20 out of their customers, which I'm not really sure these Giants will do that. Some owners are going to Walmart and buying all the Walmart books at retail price and then re-selling them at their stores for an inflated price. It's not just the retailers, but speculators thinking they can turn a quick buck, are also buying them up and reselling them on ebay (usually three times as much).

    These books are mainly reprints, except for an all-original, new 12-page strips. From my point of view, considering that I actually own/read most of these reprints, paying $5 for a 12-page story may actually be too much. I wish DC would maybe re-package the all-new stories into a collected triple size comic and charge $5-$8, maybe re-titled it as DC Comics Presents..., so collectors wouldn't have to go into Walmart! This would solve the problem for both comic retailers and collectors who just wants to read the monthly story, in my opinion.

    Based on DC's reprint choices, I do not believe they will be reprinting Marv Wolfman and George Perez's New Teen Titans run any time soon. All the reprinted material seems to be within the past decade (example: The Terrifics #1 just came out in Feb 2018!) However, one of DC's house ad shows The New Teen Titans books, so perhaps it's in the pipeline down the road?  I hope so, but I'm not holding my breath.

    Anyway, say what you will, but for the first time in a long time, I had to on the hunt to find comics. It's partly fun and partly annoying. You always knew you could get some titles at your comic store, or you pre-order them two months earlier via Previews, so the comics you want is guaranteed. With these Walmart comics, you never know if you can get a title you want or get anything at all. Some stores stock them late, or some stores don't carry them at all... it's like throwing darts in the dark.

    Personally speaking, I don't mind Walmart at all. They are a big store and they generally have the best prices in town. I go every once in a while, but now with these comics, I may make it a habit to go twice a month to check up on the latest comics.

    My wish list is that Marvel or DC would do something similar with Target or just makes comic books available everywhere.  With the announcement that Game Stop would be stocking comics too, I'm excited about the future for the industry... I just wish they had done this years earlier.



    Walmart finally putting out comics in my area

    With a little patience, I was able to find some of the Walmart 100-Page Comics. They didn't have the Teen Titans Giant title (which was the title I really wanted), someone probably knew it was the rare title and may have bought them all.

    The local Walmart location probably put the comics out today or yesterday, as I went to the same location on July 4th and they didn't have it out.  I'm still getting reports that many Walmart locations haven't receive their comics or haven't put them out yet.

    Just to let you know there's some hope left if you are still looking for copies. Good luck!



    Walmart to restock DC 100 Page Comics

    posted Jul 4, 2018, 3:44 PM by Vu Nguyen

    From Vu

    One of the hottest selling comics right now are the Walmart 100 Page Comics. The Teen Titans 100 Page is the rare title of the bunch, and are currently selling on eBay for $20+.

    Even though these comics were marketed to new readers, they are the ones not able to buy them because they fly off the shelves so fast to retailers and speculators. They are buying up all the titles (in many cases buying out the entire stock).

    There are some good news though, one fan (Jay B) wrote that he talked to Walmart and they told him that the comic books are being restocked after July 4th. As long as the comic book sells out, why not continuously restock the titles? Don't buy the comic books from resellers, hopefully you can find a copy at your local Walmart.

    Teen Titans Giant (Walmart Exclusive)

    TEEN TITANS #1 (2nd & 3rd Print) (Homage) (Sep 2003)
    DC Comics
    DC Comics will be launching these 100-page "Giant" $5 comics at Walmart in July 2018, which includes a new story with reprints. Although no George Perez reprints are included in the first issue of Teen Titans Giant, it probably won't be long until we see his art in the Walmart exclusive series given how many TT issues that George touched.
