POKEMON GO enters some Valiant comic shop sites

EDITOR’S NOTE:  For those of you interested in the Pokemon Go game, you’ll need to visit stores in New York or New Jersey in order to participate in this particular promotion.  Give Valiant Entertainment some credit for their social media savviness, and finding a way to promote both their line of books as well as pull some new customers into comics shops.  We really don’t see a downside here. (But wish there were more shops involved. Maybe later?) Just keep one eye on the street and road in front of you, Pokemon Go players!
