DC Comics to open pop-up shop in Washington DC

DC Comics, which publishes Wonder Woman, Superman and Batman, is creating a pop-up shop in the US capital.

"DC in D.C." will have interactive displays where people can learn about the history of the comic books. It will be located in Washington DC.

The "top 50 greatest graphic novels of all-time" such as The Death of Superman and V for Vendetta will be available for purchase.

Large comic panels will take fans back in time with a series of former comic book covers, as well as showing people how the titles are made with a "how to build a hero" station.

An LED megascreen, measuring 15 feet by nine feet, will cover the back of the pop-up shop with motion graphics of the characters in the comic books.

The activation will also have talent appearances, superhero costumes on display, custom T-shirts and more.

The shop opens from 12 January to 14 January.
