Our business depends heavily on our Comics File system (the pull lists)
More than half the comics we sell go out that way
As the number of available titles increase and with rapidly shifting trends in readership (not to mentio the whims of the publishers)
it gets more difficult to accurately predict what books everyone is going to want.
This is where we need you to help us, help you. Comics are solicited 3 months in advance through the Previews magazine
(which we provide free of charge) and it gives great insight a to what is going to be happening in the pages of your
favorite mags: artists, writers, storylines and highlights are generally provided.
Through the wonders of the world wide web, many of you know about what's happening in the funny books even before we do.
We would love to order 50 deep on every comic we see so that we always have whatever anyone could want, but we can't.
We certainly carry more individual titles than any other store in the area though, but that is getting more precarious and difficult to maintain.
The best way to keep up the choice and to get what you need is to let us know what you are collecting and to have it added to a pull list for you.
Then, every week when new stuff arrives we tuck it away for you so you won't miss out and it helps us better gauge a comic's popularity and
gives us flexibility on ordering even more rad stuff.
Usually when something sells out a little faster than normal we can stock back up on issues,
but with the current trends of increasingly lower printruns coinciding with Mega Hyped events some of these things become
nearly impossible to keep up with unless we have a certain amount of notice from you.
For example: the last 5 or 6 issues of Amazing Spidey have all sold out practically before they hit the shelves.
Late additions to the Pull Lists take copies away from the shelf and the Shelf demand has been swelling dramatically during the current run.
The book is coming out twice a month whch also dramatically decreases the time we have to reorder in compensation.
As a result, every week we have failed to satisfy the demand for the Red Goblin storyline.
We simply can't reup our orders or acquire additional copies fast enough, or at all.
The bottom line is, we want to get you all the comics that you need.
But we need your help. we need info.
For what it's worth we also want to hear about what you are looking forward to or
about what you're enjoying simply because we love comics too.
If you have a file, good. If you don't, get one. It's easy. Just ask.
Tell us early and often about what you want and we'll do everything we can to get it.
Sincerely, WC League Chairman Emeritus
