Captain America #600 hit stores on Monday (it didn’t hit my local store until Wednesday), and Marvel is already reporting the issue is a sellout.

    Just got back from my LCB and they still have dozens of ’em. The owner jokingly said to me, “I know you’re just itching to grab 10 of these,” as he rung up the copy I grabbed.

    I don’t know what the LCS guys are thinking when they order a million copies of Mighty Avengers #1, Dark Avengers #1, Captain America #600 and wonder what went wrong as they look at the piles of unsold copies. That’s just stupid business.

    My LCS owner buys to get the limited variant, but only sometimes.

    This way he can sell that one variant and it can pay for the entire purchase.

    Sometime when he does this he gets more of a comic than he would have otherwise but the leftovers are all gravy since that 1 variant cover paid for the purchase.

    all great, until he doesnt sell that 1 variant. But he usually does for twice as much as he originally priced it months later.

    Just another crazy aspect of the comic shop biz.

    What they’re thinking?

    “I have to order based on blind solicits, so what percentage above my normal Captain America order can I afford to have on hand? Is it better to overorder than under? Didn’t Cap #25 sell out in like five seconds? Didn’t we have a thousand backorders even after the overorder? What are the odds that this will be like that?”

    Then, he guesses… The LCS guys are in business to make money. If there’s this much hype from Marvel, there MAY be a huge run on the issue (see Amazing Spider-Man #583) then they may be able to make additional money that will offset their debt/overhead/payroll etc…

    My local ordered allot of copies….but they also had Steve Epting come in and sign most of them. They made out pretty well all and all.
