Excerpt from article: "Isn't Cyborg in the Justice League? Isn't Starfire black? And isn't Robin called Nightwing now?" The answer? It's complicated...

DC removing comics at some Walmart already?

Is DC removing their comics at some Walmart location already? It could be that some people are buying up all copies of #2 or stealing the display boxes.

I had that one of my local Walmarts had taken down the display for the DC comic & asked when there might be more & was told they hadn't seen the rep in some time. I went to another Walmart & they had the older (# 1s) as well as the #2; they also had two covers of Showcase.

George Perez's possible 2019 shows

TERRIFICON 2019 (09-11 Aug 2019)
Mohegan Sun Expo Center, Connecticut
Just speculation, but it may appear that George Perez's 2019 schedule is probably to make up for his cancellations from his 2017 shows due to his heart attack.

So, given that information, below were his cancelled 2017 dates:
  • East Coast Comic Con 2019, NJ (Confirmed)
  • Terrificon 2019, Connecticut (Confirmed)
  • Amazing Las Vegas Comic Con 2019, Las Vegas, NV
  • North American Science Fiction Convention 2019, San Juan, PR (unlikely, see note below)
  • Dragon Con 2019, Atlanta, GA (Likely confirmed)
  • Grand Rapids Comic Con 2019, Grand Rapids, MI
Any shows outside of the USA may unlikely to happen, as George, in his own words, wrote in 2017: "I've been asked about several shows outside of the USA and just wanted to say that, while I do wish I could do more international shows, the stress of flying and going through customs and passport control (not to mention the number of itineraries that require multiple connections) ... there are no plans."
