    This book was so good that I am resentful that I choose to read it first. I had read Nova…

While I'd onto want to add to the problem, I don't understand how the method in which you order things is part of the solution. When you buy comicsmfrok the shelf, you are just shifting the commitment to buy a book two months later from yourself to the retailer. I don't want to seem argumentative, but I don't know if I'm missing something. I agree with Mr. Wood, in that what may be needed is another paradigm shift, such as a switch to digital comics. That may put many retailers out of business, but maybe they can put their resources to better use. I always joked that if you can correctly order, with a small margin of error, the right amount of "x" comic book for the shelf with complete sell thru, you'd be better off using those skills to trade commodities.

    @connor: Is it because of spoilers that you do not use Previews? I've never had an issue, though I may have conditioned myself to ignore such things. Unfortunately, my LCSs don't carry much on their shelves, and I find that if I don't actively look for new books, I won't get them.

    I've recently switched to an online service, and it seems to me that Previews is paramount to get what you want.

    I would be curious to hear if anyone on his site doesn't use previews. I was of the assumption that most people did.

    Good point about the paradigm shift. I had to practically beg my LCS to have some Mouse Guard for the shelf when it was first solicited, to convince him that they would sell well. Luckily, he eventually agreed, and now, thanks to that, our store has a big MG following.

    I enjoyed the podcast, and it will be very useful if I ever make it out to SDCC. I l ive in Florida, so I don't think it's likely. If you guys ever make it to Mega-Con in Orlando, I can give you some suggestions. For future podcast, I think you should cover your taste preferences a bit so the listener can have an idea of whose opinion best matches their own.

    BTW, peanut butter hamburgers are delicious. I was skeptical at first, but I've been a fan ever since.

    July 14, 2009 5:58 pm While it seems every writer has a different story for how they broke in, the common theme is that they all had experience writing, and most had something published in one form or another. Just as you wouldn't hire a plumber with no experience in that field, why would you hire a writer with no published material or no proof that they can produce regularly?
