First Look at This Weekend’s Walmart DC Giant Comic Magazines

The new DC Giants hit Walmart this weekend. Everything but the Superman Giant #15 is no longer exclusive to Walmart, but will only reach the comic store market in a few weeks. Here’s how they are all looking on the shelves.

  • Superman Giant #15 (with #16 confirmed as on the way next month).
  • Batman Giant #1
  • Villains Giant #1
  • Scooby-Doo Giant #1
  • Wonder Woman Giant #1
  • Flash Giant #1
  • Swamp Thing Giant #1
  • Ghosts Giant #1

We’ll run the contents below. Outside of the Superman Giant, the Walmart versions list “Mass Market Edition” in their copyright.

The Superman Giant matches the look of the rest. Format-wise, they are exactly the same as the previous Giants. But be on the lookout for the new IT Chapter Two slime that is sitting on the shelf above the books… and remember what happened the last time they tried that in Walmart.
