So does anyone remember a preview magazine sent out by DC Direct to comic shops back in 2001, it had hi-quality images of DC products coming out, like statues, figures, posters, and what not. I still have #01-15 of them, and every now and then I pull them out and look at the awesome figures and statues that I still hope one day I will be able to purchase, plus whenever I look at them I get this warm nastalgic feeling from the time I first got them, even though it wasn't that long ago. I wish DC didn't stop with these (I know the reason they stopped was the internet was much cheaper way to solicit their products, but I thought these were a good idea) so anyways, many of you might not find this very interesting, but I just thought I would ask to see if anyone remembers those, and knows of how many their were?
thanks :) and later today I will try and rustle up some pics for reference,


D.

My LCS has some of the old solict posters still hanging up, but he doesn't have any of the solicit booklets as far as he can recall.

The last issue I have is #16 April 2003.
(if there were any more than that, I don't know about it.)

Since I don't mind you asking... ( :lol: )

...The cover spotlights Cyborg Superman, Doomsday and Supergirl (in her white tee)
pg. 2 solicits the SuperFriends Robin maquette
pg. 3 animated style Joker snowglobe (Batman & Robin tied up and Harley 'round back).
pg. 4-5 Wonder Woman Bookends (lassooing Cheetah)
pg. 6 solicit for the figures from the cover (available in June! Order yours today! -if you had a time machine)
pg. 7 DC Pocket Heroes series 2. (Black Canary & Green Arrow, Lois & Bizarro, GA Flash & Hourman
Back cover ad for Magic the Gathering card game.

-These ad magazines were well done and they did a good job making all the merch look great. Good close-ups and good lighting. I'm kinda glad I kept them all.
