Cap ShieldSo… we haven’t had anyone calling about Captain America #25. No passionate phone calls imploring us to hold them a copy. No “Is it True!?”. I’m almost disappointed, actually, because apparently that’s been happening a lot today everywhere else. What with the news and all. The thing is, we actually have plenty of copies of Captain America #25, and are in no danger whatsoever of selling out. Maybe that’s why we’re not getting those anxious phone calls? We’re not the store that sells out of event books on the first day? We ordered correctly the first time around? I dunno. Sometimes I miss the excitement of that sort of thing, but I guess I just like having the books in stock too.

  8. Blog@Newsarama » Anyone have an extra copy of Captain America #25? says:

    [...] Many retailers limited purchases of the issue to one per customer, while others instituted sign-up lists. Even Toronto’s The Beguiling, which had “plenty of copies” on Wednesday, ended up restricting purchases on Thursday and then selling out before closing. [...]
