Last week I tried out a little experiment. While preparing my weekly “what to get” list for the comic shop, I decided to take it public and see how accurately I could predict my comic book haul on a weekly basis.
Not only did last week have a large amount of expected purchases, it also had a lot of surprises. I ended up leaving my LCS with a ton of free comics.
This week looks to be the exact opposite. And that’s fine by me. I have a lot of past purchases and borrowed books to catch up on, mostly in the form of large graphic novels. This week is so weak, in fact, that my pull list is bare. And the extra books I plan to pick up are looking rather low as well.
*** Pull List *** $0.00
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #570 $2.99
MICHELANGELO 3RD KIND #1 $3.25
*** Extras *** $6.24
*** Everything *** $6.24
*** Estimated $$$ *** $5.98
This recent Amazing Spider-Man arc has been strong thus far, so I’m back for week 3. To my suprise, there’s a TMNT limited series coming out. However, since I’m one of two people with TMNT comics on my pull list at my LCS, there’s a chance that this Michelangelo title won’t even be on the racks at Phantom tomorrow.
In fact, I’m counting on my shop to not have the TMNT comic in stock. I expected to leave the store with Amazing Spider-Man #570 and another $2.99 comic that catches my interest while browsing. So check back in a couple days to see what I got!
