One of the most important things in the buying of comics appears to be habit. You go to the store on a certain day at a certain time and voila – there are your comics waiting for you! Depending on the store and the time, you may find that NOT the case this Wednesday, July 5!
Several columns back, I discussed the advent of Loot Crate, a subscription service that sends to your door a variety of comics, toys and other comics-related items. They publicize well in advance what the theme of each month’s offerings will be so you can know what you want. As cool as all that is, I can’t subscribe to a service that comes to me fewer times than my local comics shop has new offerings to pick up. Call me irrational, but I can’t wait when it’s time to feed my comics habit!
