The Comic Book Pull List

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 Beat-up Books – Your book never made it to the shelf for others to look through before you
  • Avoid Sell Outs – Technically you’re first in line; your titles are already saved for you at the counter. That means you…
  • Avoid Paying More on the Aftermarket – Ethical retailers will never charge you aftermarket prices on pre-ordered books. If they do, I recommend you find a new local comic book shop.

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 stuff out of their pockets with the understanding you’ll be honoring your commitment.
