DC Comics has Increased the number of mass market stores selling its comics by 60% with a new program in Target with Funko.  The program, which appears to be of limited term, puts a DC 100-page custom comic based on Funko’s Primal Age figure line in a Funko endcap featuring the figures.  Target has 1850 stores in the U.S.; DC is already in some 3000 Walmart stores (see "DC Expands Walmart Program").

The DC Primal Age one-shot, which revolves around sword and sorcery versions of DC characters, will feature-all new content: a lead 32-page story, "The Primal Age," by Marv Wolfman with art by Scott Koblish and five shorter stories written by Jerry Ordway, Louise Simonson, and Wolfman:

  • "Born on a Monday," written and drawn by Jerry Ordway
  • "Ice and Fire," written by Louise Simonson with art by Phil Winslade
  • "Darkest Knight," written by Louise Simonson with art by Brent Anderson
  • "The Joker’s Wild," written by Jerry Ordway with art by Chuck Patton, Karl Kesel and Tom Derenick
  • "Not a Bird...," written by Marv Wolfman with art by Keith Pollard and Jose Marzan Jr.

The new Funko display is not up in all Target stores yet.  A Target employee at the Madison, Wisconsin store we checked told us that they hadn’t set the new Funko endcap yet because they had "too much clearance merchandise" taking up space.
