No comics today....

889 views • Jan 3, '18 • (2) Comments

While I was working, my wife went on a trip to the mall with her aunt.  There is a comci shop at the mall, so I figured I would save myself a trip and have my wife grab me a few new comics- new comic Wednesday and all!!  I know the shop I normally go to gets their comics on Tuesday and has them sorted and ready to go by Wednesday morning, so having my grab me some sweet new books seemed like a no-brainer.

A couple of hours later, I got a text from my wife telling me that the shop did not have their comics sorted and ready for sale...  It is about 2 pm when she is relaying this information to me...  Normally this wouldn't be a huge deal, but the nearest comic shop to my house is a solid 45 minutes away, and I probably won't make it out there until the weekend, and I assume I won't be able to grab up copies of Batman 38 and The Walking Dead 175 by then.

What time does your local shop get the books on the shelf?  Here's to hoping I can grab the comics I am looking for!

  • 2 pm seems really late. I usually hit my LCS at around 11-12 and they're done. You figure a comic shop only gets REALLY busy on 2 days a week. . .Wednesday for new comics and Friday for Magic so they would plan accordingly. Sounds like that mall shop needs some better management.

  • Agree absolutely that 2 is really late- I was in the shop I normally go to on Tuesday and they were sorting the new comics then- to make sure they are ready to go first thing Wednesday! Like you said, Wednesday is THE day for shops- you would think they have every incentive to have those comics ready to rock ASAP!!!
