Weird. Even this morning on the iPad it still says “Post removed by moderators.” However, I think I found it through Google.

"Sorry, this post has been removed by the moderators of r/Art."
You probably still have the original page in your cache.

Except I didn't look at it until after I read that Space Cop couldn't see it, so I can't see how it would be in my cache...

Interestingly, the page doesn't load at all on my desktop. When I successfully linked to it, it was with my iPhone.

EDIT: Now it loads on my desktop, too. It has the message you mentioned, but the picture appears right below it for me (and it can't have been in my cache, because, once again, this is the first time I've linked to it on this machine.)

Okay, that's super weird. But a friend of mine sent it to me via messenger. So I won't be able to unsee it.

And now not only do I not get to sell the final issues of Supergirl and the Terrifics, books that several of my customers had on their pull lists, they now add new titles that I don't get to sell at all?
At a time where a massive worldwide pandemic has already cut into most of my reserves?
In terms of overseas shipping DC certainly shit the bed on that but per Bleeding Cool it wasn't malicious, they apparently didn't realize the cost savings on shipping Diamond UK provided. So not a vendetta, they're just bad at their jobs. Which isn't really a surprise.

As for the issues that switched to digital only, Marvel is doing the same thing for certain books so I don't see it as vendetta, it's just more evidence of the pandemic fucking stuff up.

DC completists, for once? Fans of the cover artists? I mean, these books have artwork by Jim Lee and Amanda Conner. I could have sold a copy or two of these titles. Maybe more.
Obviously only you know your customers but I have a hard time seeing there being more than a few hundred people in the entire world that are in the market for what is an obvious marketing tactic for HBO Max from the creative teams of Cohen/Eaton, Cohen/Prasetya and Cohen/Braga.

DC Comics 4-packs to replace 100-page Walmart giants
Quote:
DC Comics is swapping out its 100-page Walmart giants for shrink-wrapped packages of four recent individual comics, the publisher announced Thursday in a press release.

In fact, that product has already started shipping to stores, and it will be in roughly 2,900 Walmarts by July 21. Each four-pack will retail at a price point of $8.98. The new thing about these is that they will also contain backing boards featuring a different DC superhero as illustrated by Ivan Reis. When put together, the boards will form the Justice League.

I guess that means Swamp Thing Giant wont be a thing I have to chase down every month for anymore. #6 will be the final issue, and even that may never see print and be the one issue that was digital only.

^When I first read the headline I was hoping it meant reprints going to local comic shops. Oh well.
