The Sales Power of Hope

On my walk to the office today, I noticed some fifteen people lined up outside Jim Hanley’s. Through the door, I could see a much longer line inside. I can already tell: that Spider-Man issue with Obama in it is going to make my lunchtime stop for comics more like waiting in line to get into the Vatican.

Earlier this week, I was hoping they’d have enough to meet the demand. Suddenly, I’m hoping they sell out early. I’m fine with getting a second printing next week; I just want to buy my issue of Final Crisis without waiting in line for an hour.

I got Final Crisis, but the Obama Spider-Man issue was sold out. Maybe this week I'll be able to snag a second printing.
