    Just some notes for those looking for them...

    they will be in a self-contained display box that looks like this:



    that box will be on a shelf in the collectible aisle located near the check out lines (with Magic the gathering, Yuh Gi Oh cards, baseball cards, etc. , not in the book section, toy section or electronic/media section.

    The display box looks like it only holds 5 copies of each title, so that may be all that each store gets in its initial shipment (so a flipper only has to drop about $100 to clean out the display).

    Teen Titans is proving to be the hardest to find and is going for the most on ebay.

    No word yet whether they will get restocked with the same issues when they are sold out of if it will remain empty until the next issues are released.

    Thanks for the pic and the location. I looked all over my two nearest Walmarts, but, as I said, found squat. Flippers are evil little trolls who are, by and large, going to prevent this venture from reintroducing comics to the masses IMHO.
    Oh then, what's this? Big flashy lighty thing, that's what brought me here! Big flashy lighty things have got me written all over them. Not actually. But give me time. And a crayon.

    I double-checked today, and nothing in that collectibles/card aisle. I also checked the self-checkout as I heard some folks found them there. Nada. :-(

    And the kids today who they are targeted at would probably do the same if they flipped through one of your favorite comics from your childhood, especially with the faded muddy colors on newsprint. Times change and so do audience tastes. These shouldn't be produced to meet the tastes of comics readers who grew up inthe 70s but for the tastes of potential comic readers who are kids now. And those kids would want nothing to do with a Bronze Age comic and its production standards or look.

    funny that most of the toys and clip art on products are now based on Bronze age classic interpretations. The comics I looked at were muddy art wise with no excitement.
