Now, I tend to get easily :evil: enraged, but I think I'm justified in my utter disgust with my FORMER comic book shop.

After a week of vacation down south, I went there anticipating the new previews book.

I may have mentioned a couple months back that the ol' reliable pull guy quit to work at a department store and I predicted that would cause me major problems in the not-so-distant future. If I were Ed Dames, I'd now be screaming that I called the killshot correctly.

The guy handed me Thor, the New Avengers and the marvel comics-only portion of the previews guide. I said "this isn't good" then walked to the back of the store to find there weren't any issues left of previews on the shelf.

new guy didn't know how I got the one without the other, and just kept saying sorry. Then he mentioned they didn't get many previews in last week.[/quote] If he hadn't said anything, I would have chalked it up to a mistake. But, by admitting they didn't get many in, it tells me 1) New pull guy doesn't know what he's doing. 2) My pull service isn't worth a nickel if I can't get my books.

I asked if they were going to order more. He SAID NO, THEN SAID HE WAS SORRY AGAIN!

And here comes the bloody spores-to-exterminate-all-life-killsh. New guy asks me if I still wantdc to buy the marvel preview.


I wanted to physically harm him.
I'll be looking for a new comic shop in '09.

Shitty man. Hopefully youre in an area that has a few of em. I'd have to drive an hour or more to go to a shop other than my closest one.
