If you’re at San Diego…

Brian Hibbs

…and you see something cool that’s been released at the show, I’d like to encourage you to take a moment and think of your local comic book store who stocks what you want to buy the other fifty-one weeks of the year. Remember that said comic book store buys their comics non-returnable, and may in fact be stocking (fill in the item) with YOU in mind.

If you’re lucky enough to have a store that supports and stocks things like LOVE & ROCKETS or the new PARKER book or Kate Beaton products, seriously consider rewarding your store for that support by NOT buying the book at the con and waiting for it until you get home.

(If your local store sucks, go nuts)

  1. I remember when ComicsPro issued a similar message a few years ago and it didn’t go over too well. I think your version is worded *much* better.

  2. But take a snapshot of the price at the convention so that your shop will match it for you when you get back? Ah, if only…

  3. I don’t *think* any publisher is undercutting retail price on NEW books?

    That would be against their own best interests…


  4. And you don’t have to carry them home!

    (Of course, you also don’t have anything to read in line. This is easily solved by cruising the prose publishing section, and getting entire novels for free. And they say print is dead!)

  5. You may consider it a different thing, but I’ve had prominent publishers at San Diego offer discounts when I’m buying multiple new items–like five books in a series, for instance. Usually on Sunday, when I assume they’re thinking about having to ship unsold stuff back to the warehouse.
