We don’t need no stinking preorder!’
Little bit of a bastardization of the famous line from the great john Huston directed, Humphrey Bogart, Walter Huston led movie, TREASURE OF THE SIERRA MADRE.
One of the best films ever made, and a must watch if you have, in an age of Disney Blockbusters, never seen this quintessential bit of Americana. From 1948, the film is as riveting as SICARIO or any other thriller you will see today, and amazingly still as timely and as timeless.
Pre-ordering is something unique to that weird world of comic books.
Not every comic store can carry every comic. There are a lot of publishers, coming out every month with new titles. Staying on top of it can be an initial learning curve.
But pre-ordering helps you save money, depending what online or brick and mortar retailer you use, the amount is typically between 10% and 50% savings.
The particular online retailer I use, and that I recommend, saves you 35% off the cover price of your comics.
Why do I use the retailer that saves you 35% as opposed to the retailer who saves you 40 to 50%? Well I’ve used that 50% off retailer in the past, and had issues with their customer service, as well as problems getting the issues I ordered, and problems with how i was being charged.
With the 35% off retailer, the customer service has been excellent, and I get the books I ordered in quality condition.
Therefore they are the ones I use, and the ones I recommend.
Okay this is part one of my comic book pre-order tutorial, the little trailer/preamble if you will. I am hard at work on part two, with suggestions of what to order and the link you can use to order from my retailer of choice.
Give this post a like, and come back in about 4 hours to see the 2nd and final part of this pre-order for books shipping in over 2 months, in October.
