I've finished my comic orders for the month. I just drastically cut back on the endless and progressively lamer crossovers and tie-ins that Marvel and DC are offering. With a title like Daredevil or Batman, I have months and years of records about how many have sold. What do I do with one-shots and mini-series? I guess. I try to read my customers minds. I try to divine how good or how bad, how central and important, how timely each new title will be.
Screw it. I'll order enough for the counter, and those that want it the most will get it. Everyone else, I'll have to reorder for. I'm just eating way too many of these guess-work comics.
