There are 57 titles this year, a ridiculous number, and there is no single customer who would legitimately want all of them. Based on subject matter, I mean. So don’t go asking for all of them just to satisfy some weird collector’s urge. As Hibbs points out, with shipping, your retailer is spending almost $20 per set of FCBD books. If you do want them all, offer to chip in.
Let your store put some money into attracting new customers with the giveaways. Concentrate on the ones you want. Hopefully, your shop is also doing some kind of special offer for the existing customers, so maybe take advantage of any sales. FCBD, May 3 this year, is the closest thing comics has to a national holiday, and we’re talking about it now because now’s when preorders are due. Such is the comic market.
