DC Announces 99 Cent Sampler By Brian Jacks
Fans on a budget have another reason to celebrate. DC Comics has announced that Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and Plastic Man will be sharing the spotlight this October in WORLD'S BEST COMICS: THE GOLDEN AGE DC ARCHIVES SAMPLER, a special 48-page collection of some of DC Comics' greatest Golden Age tales. And the cost of this retro enjoyment? A measly 99 cents.
"We've had several retailers suggest a low-priced entry point to our Archives program, so we're happy to offer WORLD'S BEST COMICS," says Bob Wayne, DC's VP — Sales & Marketing. "This will be a terrific tool to introduce new readers to the excitement and thrills of DC's Golden Age comics."
