‘Justice League’ Comics Getting Packed In General Mills Cereal Boxes Through The Fall
For those who dig DC Comics and regularly chow down on General Mills' breakfast cereals, the coming months could be particularly sweet. According to The New York Times, DC and General Mills have teamed up for an in-box promotion that puts a free series of four original 24-page Justice League comics inside specially-marked boxes of Big G cereals like Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Honey Nut Cheerios, Lucky Charms, Trix, Golden Grahams, Reese's Puffs and Cocoa Puffs. A total of 12 million copies of the 5x7" comics will be in circulation, with four special 4-page digital bonus stories that correspond with each issue available to read for free at bigcerealheroes.com.Though the recent DC relaunch reportedly moved more than 5 million issues in six weeks, these 12 million Big G comics seem to be rooted in DC's more classic lore, with the Justice League appearing in iconic costumes similar to their Silver Age looks.
It's unclear which creators are working on the main stories, but here's a breakdown of who worked on the "part two" digital backups currently online:
- Justice League #1 pt. 2: writer Scott Beatty, artist Christian Duce
- Justice League #2 pt. 2: writer Paul Tobin, artist Derec Donovan
- Justice League #3 pt. 2: writer Doug Wagner, artist Christian Duce
