Walmart has been stepping up its entries into the world of geek collectibles quite a bit this year. With the launch of its exclusive line of DC Giant-Sized issues, and this new collectibles area, it’s beginning to sound as though Walmart is going to have to become as much of an essential stop for geek shopping as hitting up your local comic shop.
