    Default What's going on with the Wal-Mart book?

    It's been over two months since a new issue. The last chapter of the King story was supposed to come out. Does anyone know what the delay is?

    No delay, Issue #16 with the last chapter of Up in the Sky came out last month. It's getting a relaunch with a new #1 in December, but it's not exclusive to Wal-Mart anymore and I think they are coming out bi-monthly now.

    That means I missed it for the first time ever.

    Pretty sure Venditti is taking over the Superman Giant. He’s apparently a huge Superman fan so it will be interesting to see what he does.

    I was wondering if it was just my Wal-Mart - I just now got a round of #2's for the relaunches, but still no Superman #16.
    You can follow me on Twitter or Tumblr, if more of my opinions sounds like something you'd like.

    I went to two and both of them were out. They would have to have all been bought up the same day because I went the day they came out. There's one on the far side of town I can call but I'm not optimistic.

    Is it not possible that they were late putting them out then, and then sold out when you checked again on a later date?

    Had to go two towns over but I finally managed to snag a copy. Anyway, here's the cover for the new Superman Giant #1 due out January 1st.:

    It looks like they're now reprinting Rebirth stories.

    Just the Superman story. The Supergirl and Action Comics stories are both pre-Flashpoint.

    Not all Walmart stores have the books. Not all Walmart staff put the books on the shelves. Not all Walmart stores get every issue. My lwm missed two or three months during the first volumes

    Missing issues isn't going to encourage readers to stick around is it? No wonder Walmart lost their exclusivity on them.
