> I have my local comic shop save back a few comics for me each month because I travel for my job and can't make it there frequently. Also, they give me a decent discount on the one's I have held. I show up on Wednesday and they are sold out of CAP #25 so, I don't get my issue. This has happened a few times. The last time it happened I told the owner "If nothing else, make sure I get my Cap comic". What the shop does is set out new comics for the general public and whatever comics don't sell that day go into the saved bin. There's been a few times where they were sold out of the comic I had saved but they held back comics for me that I could care less about. I'm a nice guy; if it looked interesting enough I would go ahead and buy it. I had a subscription for years. But, I like going to this shop now and again so, I thought I might as well give him more business. Is this common practice? The owner's a nice guy but it seems disrespectful to me.


no, that's not standard procedure...at least, not at any comic shop I've ever frequented. Protocol SHOULD be that they take out the comics for their customer pull-lists FIRST, then AFTER that, they put out the comics for the rest of the customers. If the average customer got priority over someone with a pull list, that would be negating the purpose of the pull list in the first place. My advice is to either explain to your comic shop the way that they should be doing it, and, if they refuse to acquiesce, then find another one that will. On the bright side, I went to my comic shop today, and they said that they will be shipping more Cap #25 to stores, and that they will be first printing, so, worst case scenario, you should have another chance to get it without losing the collector value.

He's supposed to get some more next Wednesday. Is it bad form to ask the store to hold a varient cover for you if it's a title you currently have held for you?
