Line Expands to Six Titles with SWAMP THING, THE FLASH

TEEN TITANS and JUSTICE LEAGUE of AMERICA Continue as TITANS #1 and WONDER WOMAN #1

All Titles in Participating U.S. Walmart Retailers by February 17, 2019

DC announced today that it is bolstering its successful relationship with Walmart by introducing new titles, increasing the publisher’s slate of 100-Page Giant comics from four to six. In addition, two titles from the original lineup will be re-titled and renumbered as #1 issues. All titles, including the SUPERMAN 100-Page Giant featuring Tom King with Andy Kubert and the BATMAN 100-Page Giant featuring Brian Michael Bendis and Nick Derington, will arrive in participating U.S. Walmart retail stores by Sunday, February 17.

Additions to the lineup include the SWAMP THING 100-Page Giant #1 and THE FLASH 100-Page Giant #1. As with the other Walmart titles, each book will retail at $4.99 and combine new original stories with “flashback” content from popular DC story eras such as DC Rebirth, the New Age of Heroes and the New 52. “DC has been incredibly successful in attracting new readers through its relationship with Walmart,” said Nancy Spears, VP, Mass Book, Digital Sales and Trade Marketing. “These two titles are the perfect extensions to the Walmart line, given the successful Flash tv show and the popularity of last October’s SWAMP THING HALLOWEEN HORROR Special.”

The debut issue of the SWAMP THING 100-Page Giant includes an original story, “Desert of Ash,” written by Tim Seeley (NIGHTWING, GREEN LANTERNS), with art by Mike Perkins (GREEN LANTERNS, THE CURSE OF BRIMSTONE ANNUAL). This 12-page tale features Swamp Thing and his witch companion Briar as they face the pyromaniac Char Man, who possesses the ability to control flames, a power granted by the elemental spirits of fire itself. Issues #2 and #3 feature “Bog of Blood,” a two-parter by Seeley with art by Joëlle Jones (CATWOMAN), which introduces a terrifying and potentially supernatural slasher stalking the swamps of Louisiana.

This 100-page spectacular also includes fan-favorite stories from DC’s New 52 period, including Jeff Lemire, Travel Foreman and Dan Green’s “The Hunt,” from ANIMAL MAN, in addition to “Raise Dem Bones,” from the New 52 SWAMP THING by JUSTICE LEAGUE writer Scott Snyder and Yanick Paquette, plus “Death in a Small Town,” featuring Detective Chimp and Shadowpact.

THE FLASH 100-Page Giant #1 features an all-new tale of the Scarlet Speedster, written by Gail Simone (BIRDS OF PREY, SECRET SIX, PLASTIC MAN) with art by Clayton Henry (BLACK LIGHTNING: COLD DEAD HANDS). In the 12-part arc “Glass Houses,” Barry Allen is dedicated to keeping the streets of Central City safe as the Fastest Man Alive. But when his old foe Mirror Master shows up looking to cause trouble, it’s up to the Flash to stop him. This book also debuts classic tales of the New 52 version of the Flash by Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato, in addition to the spacefaring adventures of Adam Strange from 2004 by Andy Diggle and Pasqual Ferry, plus the classic New 52 “rebirth” of the World’s Mightiest Mortal, Shazam, from Geoff Johns and Gary Frank.

Both the JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA and TEEN TITANS Giants will retain their same contents but continue with new cover titles and will be renumbered with #1 issues. The JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA 100-Page Giant becomes WONDER WOMAN 100-Page Giant #1, continuing the original Wonder Woman story by Amanda Conner, Jimmy Palmiotti ,Tom Derenick and Chad Hardin, with “flashback” stories from Geoff Johns’ New 52 JUSTICE LEAGUE and AQUAMAN, plus 2006’s “Who Is Wonder Woman?” by Allan Heinberg, Rachel Dodson and Terry Dodson.

The TEEN TITANS 100-Page Giant continues as TITANS 100-Page Giant #1, with BATMAN BEYOND writer Dan Jurgens continuing his original story with art by Scot Eaton and Wayne Faucher. In addition, the book will continue the ongoing reprint stories from Geoff Johns and Tom Grummett’s TEEN TITANS from 2004, Peter Tomasi’s SUPER SONS from 2017’s DC Rebirth and Kenneth Rocafort, Dan DiDio’ and Max Raynor’s SIDEWAYS from the New Age of Heroes.
