…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)
