In the opposite of DC Comics offering EXCLUSIVE content to Walmart, Valiant Entertainment is going in the other direction and catering directly to retailers at San Diego Comic-Con this year.
The company announced the news in a press release, revealing that advance looks at Britannia: Lost Eagles of Rome #1 and Bloodshot Rising Spirit #1 would be given out to retailers after the Diamond Retailer Appreciation Lunch on Friday, July 22nd. Retailers who can’t make it can drop Valiant and email. As for fans, Valiant encourages them to ask their retailer to grab some for them, because you won’t find these babies in Walmart (though you will probably find them on eBay).
