It's been a huge week for the team formerly known as DC Direct. On Wednesday they revealed their new name - DC Collectibles - along with plans to expand their online store. They also announced two new online exclusive products and a new line of custom prints that will only be available through their website. For action figure fans, the DC Collectibles panel is likely to be one of the highlights of C2E2, and we're covering every moment of it as part of our CON AWAY FROM CON coverage.
It’s been a week of conventions, collectibles and this thing called The Culling here on DCComics.com. And while you should keep an eye on the website all weekend long for exclusive C2E2 CON AWAY FROM CON coverage, there was plenty of news to break before we even left for Chicago. Let’s take a look at some of it, shall we?
Here’s what happened on the DC Comics website this week…
Chicago, Illinois. Home to the Cubs, the Sears Tower and some of the country’s best hot dogs. And for the weekend of April 13-15, it’ll also be home to over 35,000 of the nation’s most enthusiastic comic book fans as the 2012 Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo unfolds.
The countdown to the end of the world begins!
