  1. You know, I think this would be a worthwhile contract for my local shop to institute for all subscriptions, so they wouldn’t have to keep sending out e-mails that say “Seriously guys, come pick up your comics or I will run out of money and have to close.”

  2. Yeah, I’m gonna have to agree that all comic shops should take up this approach to selling comics. People should lose their lives for how many un-bought issues they let pile up at local stores.

    ^^ I do that every once in a while due to financial necessity, but I always settle up. Last year I spent 500 bucks in one day at my LCS… :-\

    What we need are more graphic novels, not comic-books.

    i disagree, it is easier for most people to spend 3-4 bucks a month than it is to drop 25 bucks all at once.

    I would much rather pay $25 bucks all at once to read an entire story instead of enduring the torture of waiting for the next issue, paying more in the end, and wasting all that paper. Lets hear it for the TPB!

    Wish there were a box marked “surprise me” as all three covers are quite lovely!

    As a retailer, I have no problem with switching to GN’s TPB’s as long as all are FULLY returnable. As it stands now, I have to pay for and keep whatever I order no matter if it sells well or not. The idea of getting stuck with stacks and stacks of non returnable books is not a pleasant one.

    This would also mean creator’s would have to wait a longer period of time, say 4 to 6 months to get paid. Since true sales figures would not be know until the returns come back. As long as everyone’s OK with that, let’s go.

    All the people saying they want to replace monthlies are just morganagrom’s various aliases.

  11. the part about the retailer being able to shoot those who order a book and then end up not buying it made me laugh

    but I fear this may lead to the deaths of a few comic book nerds
