DC Comics has announced that there is a new comic available exclusively at Target stores. This new comic is a one-shot based off the recently released Funko action figure line, DC Primal Age.
Primal Age reimagines popular characters from the DC Universe into a barbarian-style universe (think He-Man and the Masters of the Universe) with new backstories and power sets. The action figure line was shown off at New York Comic Con and initially released on Amazon in time for the holidays. Now the line is making its way into Target stores as well and to celebrate the line, DC has a special comic to enrich the universe.
Marv Wolfman teams with Scott Koblish for a thirty-two-page main story featuring the Justice League and Joker. There are also five short stories featuring work by Louise Simonson, Jerry Ordway, Phil Winslde, Brent Anderson, Chuck Patton and Keith Pollard.
Check out the full details for the issue below as well as some of the interior art below. The comic can be picked up at Target for $9.99 now.
