> 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?

You're one of his regular paying customers. He should do whatever it takes to keep you happy.
