Comic Book Pull List – Top 3 Benefits

Your Comic Book Pull List is a list of comic book titles you provide to your local comic book shop, who will automatically pull aside and save those books safely behind the counter for you.

Benefits of a Comic Book Pull List

Pull LIst

Because your favorite comics are set aside and saved for you when they come in, your Pull List can help you:

  • Avoid Sell Outs – Technically you’re first in line; your titles are pulled and saved for you at the counter before the front door ever opens. That means you…
  • Avoid Beat-up Books – Your books never make it to the shelves for others to handle before you. You also…
  • Avoid Paying More on the Aftermarket – Ethical retailers will never charge you aftermarket prices on pre-ordered books. If they do, I recommend you quickly find a new local comic book shop, or take advantage of a mail-order subscription service.

Be Kind to Your Local Retailer

It’s important to point out… unlike most other retail businesses, your local comic shop owner has to pay for non-returnable stock in advance.

Let that sink in for a moment.

While other businesses can return unsold items, most of what you see in a comic shop has already been paid for by the owner – who will be stuck with it if it doesn’t sell.

Please keep in mind that your retailer is putting their faith in you – and paying for your pull list items out of their pocket with the understanding you’ll be honoring your commitment.
