I brought this up in this topic here
, and both RIV & I have the experience of shops just piling new books onto our Pull Files without asking. It's something that annoys me, because some prominent writers are on many books, and they just ASSUME I want to read Waid's Black Widow
because I got his Avengers
. I guess that it's sometimes random, though at other times it's deliberate.
Sometimes they stick a book I had no intention of getting (Thanos), and when I say no, they're like "REALLY? But it's one of the best books out there!"
Sometimes they even act a little hurt, like I'm costing them money. I'm like "OKAY- I get that shops don't make shit for profits, but I spend eighty bucks a month here; don't make me out to be a dick because I don't want to collect 20 books". It's the kind of thing that's JUST annoying enough to make me consider dropping my File and just going back to grabbing random stuff in whatever store (except I get a discount, and don't end up accidentally buying shit twice because they released two covers and I forgot or something like that).
