If you can’t go to the San Diego Comic Con, and you have free time to hunt Pokemon, Valiant Entertainment is taking New Comic Book Day to the next level by sponsoring Pokemon Go Lures at comic shops around the country.
Beginning today, join the excitement as your local comic shop transforms into your next PokéStop when Valiant drops Pokémon Go Lures at a slate of specially designated comic book retailers! As the elusive Pokémon populate each newly active PokéStop for a limited time, comics fans and mobile gamers can come together at 11 U.S. retailers – stretching coast to coast from New York to California – for a one-of-a-kind Pokémon Go experience sponsored exclusively by Valiant Entertainment!
Even though Valiant and Hastings have been close over the last couple of years, I can confirm, my local Hastings is not part of this stunt. Instead, head to these really good comic book shops:

I like the claim that these shops stretch from New York to California, and there isn’t a single Valiant sponsored Lure in Colorado, Texas, of Illinois. Oh well, I’m going to continue my hunt for the illusive Arachnimon that I hear is in the dark closet in the basement.
