James and Eric did one of their semi-annual shop crawls to look at what other stores in the area are doing. As they drove along, it was determined that there are many different ways of operating a comic based store. Is one way better than another? What are the concerns of operating in a specific way? Join the guys as they talk about the good, the not so good, and the concerning!
James and Eric hit the airwaves to talk about variants. Tiered variants, open to order variants, and direct priced variants, which is better? We go deep on analogies, examples, and primary versus secondary sales on variant covers. Finally we top it off with some discussion about why Marvel does so many variants and tiers.
Join James and Eric, as they discuss a question from listener Sam regarding promotional timing. Is two months or more a hindrance to success?
