Where are they in the stores? I stopped by the Walmart by my house but no luck finding the DC display I see in a lot pictures. Sped through the toy aisle and the books aisle and didn't see anything. I was in a hurry, so there's a good chance I overlooked them.

They are not with those things, usually by the registers with Pokemon and such.

They are up by the checkout area, there is an aisle with cards and stuff.

Keep in mind some Walmarts just don't carry those 100 Page Giants. Of the 7 locally only 4 of them
carry those books in my area. All of them had them at the beginning and some still have them while
others dropped order them.

Ah yeah. Looked in the cards area, too and no luck. Must be one of the stores that stopped carrying them. Actually, it didn’t really  have a great selection of cards. Makes sense

Not to pry, but I got one, are you saying this is more a turnover thing? (Some think flip is a dirty word)

I didn't go for Batman damned #1 because that was, imo, silly, but this one I was going to hold...

I'm not too familiar, will no one remember this book if A) it doesn't get recalled? B) does?

It seems people are basically talking about this book because it's a Women in Refrigerators sort of thing, and the book that that controversy is named after is 25 years old and doesn't go for much

Thanks, I can understand if it gets recalled that it might survive in memory longer as it would be on a CGC label. But since it hasn't been yet, it's the unknown that has me spell bound lol

That's a legit undervalued book in my humble opinion.  There's a sweet UPC variant too that I think was sold in 3 packs at Toys R Us exclusively that is important.  I think that this is the kind of stuff that people are going to want (much like pre-code horror) in the future.

So there's this Superman #7, Batman #4 for Jinny Hex, Teen Titans #1 for Disruptor (?), and I think the Halloween giant was hot for a minute. Are there others that have key events or particularly noteworthy stories?

Just kidding. I looked for them when we hit Walmart for work Christmas exchange gifts and was told none of the Canadian stores carry them.

Lady Death Hellraiders #1 Bombshell cover is looking to be a hot item. Mycomicshop looks to be already sold out and there are no cover price BIN's on eBay right now.

If one stops shopping at Walmart then one has much less worry about garbage accumulating in their household. ;)

What's the 25-year-old book you guys are referencing? I either forgot or never knew! Sorry for slight derail but I'm racking my brain and it's making me nuts :ohnoez:
