Samii’s Thought of the Week: To Subscribe or not to subscribe, that is the question?

3uzmqvHowdy folks, The last couple of weeks I have been toying with the idea of going and getting a subscription form from a comic shop and filling it in. I’ve never thought of doing this before because I’ve always just went in and bought my comics, but now I’m getting a busier lifestyle and it seems that when I go in one is  sold out, or don’t get the variant I wanted, so have to go online and pay a fortune for it. 

Subscription sounds so easy, and you can get them either in the shop or just delivered straight to your house, that sounds amazing! But I’m still unsure about the process.

What I mean is, I love going into a comic shop and looking for my comics. I love going in and maybe just finding something you never thought of picking up that looks pretty cool so you buy it in hopes of it being a good read. And I think I’d really miss that if I didn’t have that. Either that or it’ll go to the complete other end of the spectrum and I still go into comic shops and spend way more money than I ever did on other comics because I know I have my set few coming to my house.

So I thought I’d ask you guys for help in this matter. Do you go into the shop weekly and buy your comics, or is it subscription based you choose?

Let me know because I’m interested to see what most say!

  1. We have a subscription to only a few comics that I pick up for us weekly. We still have to pick them up at the shop though. Usually while I’m there, I’ll scan the rack and still find a few titles we didn’t reserve that look interesting, so I grab those too. We get the best of both worlds that way — the one’s we know we want to follow will be there when they release, and we still get to browse for new titles.
