DC Comics are still on shutdown at comic book stores until at least the end of the month, even with those brand new distributors, smashing open the Diamond Comics hegemony. But as Bleeding Cool's Senior Walmart Reporter Ian Melton reported yesterday, the Walmart distribution from DC and Marvel still keeps going from strength to strength. Walmart stores have now received Our Fighting Forces #1, with new content by Brad Meltzer, Jim Lee, Christopher Priest, Larry Hama and more. Not everyone lives close to a Walmart store, or are willing to go to Walmart for a comic book. Which may be why the comic has been booming on eBay over the past couple of days since it was published. Which has seen multiple copies sell for between $15 to $25 plus postage, despite having a $5 cover price.
Here's what you can find inside:
Medal of Honor, an 8-page story featuring Batman written by Sal Giunta and Brad Meltzer with art by Jim Lee and Scott Williams
To save a friend from seemingly insurmountable odds, the Dark Knight Detective must summon every ounce of his skill and bravery! This tale is based on the true story of U.S. Army Specialist Salvatore A. Giunta, who was awarded the Medal of Honor for his service in Afghanistan-the first living soldier to receive that honor during the Global War on Terrorism.
House Call, a 16-page story featuring the Unknown Soldier written by Christopher Priest with art by Christopher Mooneyham
A cable news reporter with a mysterious U.S. Army tactical unit tries to figure out which one of the team's members is the immortal covert operative code-named the Unknown Solder-and discovers much more than she bargained for!
Code of Honor, an 8-page story featuring Batwoman written by Larry Hama with art by Mirko Colak
Katherine Kane has worked hard to establish herself as one of Gotham's most intelligent and strategically cunning vigilantes. But before she was Batwoman, she was as West Point cadet-and when she gets drafted into a covert mission as brigade XO, she'll need every bit of training that the Army gave her!
