  • DC 4-packs have landed at participating Walmarts
  • ⚠️ Answers To Frequently Asked Questions
  • Comics are usually found in the same section as baseball and Pokémon cards
  • We will add new Walmart comics to the database if they begin to consistently resell for $10+
  • We do not know if or when specific Walmarts will stock the issues
  • It is your choice to open the 4-pack or keep it sealed - Marvel packs at times have had individual exclusives that are sought after, DC lately has been repackaging issues already released in comics shops with a cardboard backing and an illustration that creates a connecting image
  • DC has been less in-demand than Marvel because they are not exclusive covers
  • There are multiple different 4-packs, this image is an example to pass along the message
  • There is no guarantee that the packs will sell for higher than the original retail price or maintain value after the first week
  • Thank you Phillip Bell for the heads up
  • We are being told that a Legion of Super-Heroes #6 (Gold Lantern) is in the pack with the Outsiders facing frontwards
  • There is a Wonder Woman movie variant that is the same cover as the one distributed in stores but a different UPC
