I fucking hate that this is a thing now. It feels like i'm being kicked out of my own hobby just because I won't fall victim to Marvel's marketing tactics.

BULL. FUCKING. SHIT.

I see these types of threads all the time. I wish one of you faggots would one day secretly record one of these alleged conversations instead of furthering your own agenda you're trying to push.

I bet all we'd get is a shaky camera, sweat beads pouring down the lens, and annoying heavy breathing in the background continuously while you drop your spaghetti everywhere.
>>
>>78230925
Waifuing isn't really a SJW thing though. Your stereotypical SJW would lambast you for having a waifu, as it only adds to the patriarchical view that women are objects, prizes for white upper class straight men to fawn over, but never actually look beyond the surface of the character

Consider the futility of your request anon, if someone does it accurately you'd say it was forged footage.

Anyone else walks in is a ghost, no one seems to see or say a word to them. Meanwhile I've got a team of undercover agents playing MTG hawking me ready to contact the feds.

Even when I bring something to the counter to give them business the guy has this sour look 'cause I deigned to put cash in their pockets. I endure all this to support a medium I could just as easily acquire for free from the comfort of my basement while beating my dick to porn, but everyone else acts offended like I cost them their day? Something don't add up.

What am I going to do with stolen comics? Sell them to my drug dealer's kids to buy gum and 1 mg of leftover cocaine he scraped off the table?

These bozos need to take their clown shoes off and get serious while they're at work.

This isn't actually that far out there.

I've had LCS stores blast me for buying mostly DC before. (I favor DC since I grew up on the DCAU)

Literally had an owner in one of my college LCS ban me because I wasn't buying Marvel at the time. (he apparently got a higher profit on Marvel issues)

With all the SJW shit going down, it isn't that hard to believe.
>>
>>78233290

>>
>>78233019
>Do you not stop by every month?
For whatever reason there are 3 LCS within walking distance where I am. After getting a similar vibe from the one guy or girl in all of them I decided to rotate accordingly to keep things strictly impersonal. I'll go so far as to visit the 2 other stores on the outskirts if I think the locals are getting too familiar. Those stores will take any business they can get if it helps them stay open, I hate to take advantage of that infrequently but at least I'm helping indirectly. It's these inner city kids who think they're running an exclusive club with their friends where I need to earn points based on my character class before I'm in. Besides a regular change of scenery and exercise does good.

Sure, sure we might all get along at one of the places once we warm up to each other but I'm not going to get profiled before I can get treated like any other customer. I'm not proud of what it's come to but the way I see it it's simple as chess, white makes the first move everyone else just plays along.

Wow, OP. You're just a little bitch, aren't you?
>>
>>78233290
Similar thing happened to me but he wasn't getting a higher profit, he just couldn't return them and had to sell more because he overordered for variants..
>>
>>78233397
kek
>>
>>78233430
Even he should she see that's pretty stupid. You were giving him business but he put you on blast for not giving him more business? Shouldn't people be happy that you're actually there buying anything?
>>
>>78233290
Reminder that some shops deliberately order less copies of DC titles out of spite.
>>
>>78230142
>>78230142
Sounds like you're a big old pussy op. Why didn't you just tell her to shut up? Why not talk to the manager and get her to stop spewing her political bullshit to customers or else there won't be any more customers? No you just went full beta autismo and slithered away. Bravo.
>>
>>78233474
Some people are just retarded. I've met so many stupid people in my life, some I wonder how they get dressed in the morning or eat, they seem seriously braindead. The reason I got banned was because I laughed at him for his continued crusade of buying tons of marvel for the variants and then shoving the damn extra comics down people's throats. Yes, the variants were mostly for himself and close friends of his LCS.
>>
>>78233474
It's actually more common in bigger cities.

I know several shops in the NY area in the 90s/early 00s that had special deals setup where if they didn't meet a certain quota of DC sales Marvel would basically give them kickbacks.
>>
So glad the people at my LCS know what the hell they're talking about.
>>
>>78230142
>>tell her i'm not interested

Yeah, you can tell she was new because she couldn't just come out and say you have shit taste.
>>
>>78233559
I mean yeah you can do that but you can at least be nice about about how you go about it like "Hey man, you seem to like X so you might also be interested in Y" But based on how you're putting it he might just be an asshole.

I had a guy start a fist fight with me because not a single comic in my pull list was from marvel or dc

>>78233656
He's definitely an asshole, but I don't really care. Last time I went into his shop was to pick up my usuals and there was no Omega Men #3 which made me curious and so I asked the guy if any new people are buying but he just said he didn't order any(despite knowing I was going to buy it) and proceeded to scold me for wanting to buy that instead of some Marvel titles, that's when I laughed at him and mocked him and got banned. Whatever, I only went there 'cause it wasn't very far.

It's the force selling tactic too. Instead of simply asking "What kind of books do you like?" and branching from there the cashier just defaulted to "The black guy will like comics with black people in them."
>>
>>78230142
I don't get why you guys hide your power levels when going to places where people buy picture books. You could have helped her change her bias towards DC. If your worried about looking like an autist, just think about how autistic they might think you already are for buying comics in the first place.

What is weird to me. I guess is that when I worked at bookstores, the very last thing I wanted was to catch someone stealing. In no way is it worth it to risk personal injury or fuck up someone else's life over a fucking book.
I did catch a dude once who was trying to "return" stuff he'd stolen, but that was only because he treated me like a dumbass.

I doubt she would have out-and-out accused him of being racist, but she certainly did shit up that whole interaction by prompting him to defend his decision not to buy a book. It's just bad customer service though, it's not a fucking conspiracy.

I'm white. I ride a bike places and carry a bookbag to hold my shit. Literally every store I've been to has asked me to leave my bag at the front. I politely hand them my bag because I'm not a stupid whiny bitch nigger and I know it's a fucking rule in a lot of stores.

Grow up, dumbass.
>>
>>78234613
I mean asking if it's because he is asian is pretty much saying that the only reason she can see for not picking it up is the new Hulk's race?
>>
>>78234804

>>78231918
>>Sees all the other people near the books with their bags

It's not that he was asked to leave his bag, it's that he was the only one in the store who was singled out to do so.
>>
>>78232938
Had this exact experience at a small used book store. I came in every other week and bought shit, still the old crone running the place has her employees follow and watch me every where and glares at me the whole time. You'd think after at least the two years I went there she'd have learned that I'm buying shit!

I also had a manager who usually had me to follow black people around.
>why man?
Believe me, we hated doing it about as much as you. I'd usually just stop once I was out of his line of sight.
>>
>>78234804
>>78231918
This. As for why other people wouldn't be asked to turn over their bags and keep them, they're probably regulars that the store knows. The same thing happened at my local liquor store. I had to leave my bag at the counter for half a year. Eventually the owners knew me well enough to trust that I wasn't going to lift any expensive liquors. I just want my cheap vodka or tequila. Now whenever I bring a bag in they don't even bat an eye. I'm sure other people could look at that as being because I'm white, but the reality is that I buy a fucking lot of liquor so they treat me nicer than any stranger off the street. Same thing applies to any kind of store.
>>
>>78234804

One time I was waiting in line to purchase my comics and the guy in line in front of me who was buying several dozen packs of MtG cards shit his pants.

Have you ever watched someone shit their pants? It's really weird. First you see the turd pushing the fabric, then the discoloration starts, then it starts to spread. While all this is happening, the guy is desperately trying to suck the poop back in, and then he runs out of the store without paying but nobody tries to stop him.

NYC resident here; most of the LCS in the five boroughs are pretty chill. I think the only bad experience I've had at a LCS was on in the Bronx.

I was in the area for unrelated business & decided to check out a comic shop that was near since I'd heard it had a shit ton of action figures. Everything in there was marked with a price & I noticed a few figs I've been wanting but could not find at all or would always be too much else where. Yet, whenever I brought up something buy, the owner typed for a few seconds on his laptop & then said he can't sell it to me for the marked price. Instead of making a scene out of his obvious BSing, I just left. I was ready to spend an easy $200 on just three figs.

Only other place that's consistently bad is St. Marks Comics. They follow you around or stare you down every so often, even though they take everyone's bag at the front. Admittedly, it's a pretty small & cramped place, but they terribly obvious about it. And I'm a semi-regular there.

Don't be a fucking sperg, it's on the shelf! If you can't stand to even looking through a (tiny as fuck) LCS for the book you are after then you should just leave comics the fuck alone.

Fucking Dr Who...

>>78235541
That's some rude bullshit right there. People gotta start somewhere. Just answer the fucking question. All the owner has done is lost business forever.

>>78235670
He answered their question with a glare that said gtfo.

He doesn't need some fucking retard that will come in for maybe 3 issues of a run because it's popular.

They can start by looking for themselves.

I have never heard anyone as asperger-y as you. Asking where something is is an icebreaker. The guy almost certainly wanted to know more, but he doesn't want to come across as too forceful. His asking to know where something is is the same as asking for recommendations. "Hey, I like X. Can you suggest anything like X that I might also like?" It's motherfucking sales 101!

>>78236195
If you as a person cannot amend the faults in how these actions were spun from this kind of thinking, then that's just sad. If they were in for that limited run of whatever popular thing they were after, a product they were pursuing from their own personal preferences, then the store owner might have instead obliged them, and then taken the effort to make conversation in seeing what genres interested them, possibly making recommendations for other merchandise, and then perhaps end up with long-term customers. What a difference in treatment that would have been! But instead you co-opted to alienate complete strangers, which doesn't make "normies" just walk out indignantly, it leaves them with the lasting impression that you're some kind of a freak. Maybe they might be right. Not that I'd assume to know what they might think.

Thinking that it would be more appropriate for them to rummage around on your shelves for their single purchase, that they are less deserving of good treatment as patrons of the store is... well, look how long LCS are in business when their owners and clerks haven't the sense to be good listeners; interrupting customers, contradicting them, irritating them, and even driving them from the store.

Look, you can't blame shills, shitty employees, or retarded "so progressive!" buyers. The fault is on DC and their shitty marketing team. DC has bad PR because they refuse to copy the Marvel formula, which has proven to be effective. Rage sells, using buzzwords sell, and having people like Chris Hardwhick shill for you sells.

That's an aged based thing anyway. It's not specific to autism at all. Sure the aged based symptoms persist indefinitely in many cases of autism but still, that's a bit of a mis-titling I would say. I imagine there are several other conditions that would also fail this test.

The box, if the image would have been drawn differently, then perhaps you could say the basket, however it's clear that she did in fact already check there, therefore the only possible solution would be to inspect the box (as her ball was no longer in the basket as first glanced [made clear by the way she is standing with her arms raised as if in a questioning manner {as is something was afoul (i.e. her ball being missing when first looking in the basket[as in the same basket {or at least same physically (visually)} that she had left just moments before] when she returned from her time away} seeming as if something was off] when she returned).

People don't read comics for a number of reasons. Service and culture are pretty low on the scale actually. The sheer size and history of content, the fact you have to read as well as the necessity of actually having to go out and be consistent with a form of media that takes less than half an hour to consume a pop are far more salient.

Besides. The more niche an interest is, assuming the market evolves to fit it's smaller consumership (unlike comics) the better it is. Half the hobbies flooded with preachy normalfags are eventually ruined. Look at games. It's not enough to have games that appeal to fringe groups but now there's more and more push to have all games appease the fringe. Now where are we seeing big pushes for that lately hmm?

Not to get involved in the argument you two are having, but you mentioned something I would like to see. Instead of doing a single 20-30 page floppy each week/month, I wish comics were released as a single 200-300 page volume at a time. Would give you more material on a first issue to decide if you want to continue or not, and would allow for the smaller titles to be able to do a complete storyline even if they don't catch on.

I'm not that guy. This is my second post about it m8.

But yeah something about the structure has to give. Either price, product or presentation. I would certainly prefer to see it as a larger product with bigger gaps in between but I don't think the current third parties would be happy. Less printing, less mass delivery and less reason for LCS to exist.
Still an order online sub thing where you get your larger and better planned product once every few months/half a year or whatever, sounds pretty workable.

i was in graham cracker comics in wheaton about 3 weeks ago

some guy ahead of me at the register was talking about television shows. kept going on about how he loved daredevil but he only watched the last episode

continues to talk about how he has to watch the end of everything first

buys giant stack of comics and talks my ear off all the way to the parking lot about not having enough time to read because of his kids and wife

get into my 2015 challenger r/t plus

Dr Who is shit.

I shouldn't have to tell you Thor is shit.

It's the simple fact that all they cared about but was those two things for me.

I'm sure for the guy that runs the place, it's the fact that even though he showed them where the Dr Who merch was and gave them a free comic they didn't care about either.

yeah it's amazing how defensive people are. especially in a situation where they weren't even there and couldn't see the tone or smug smile the guy was using

he attempted to brag to a bunch of "comic geeks" for 10 minutes about how rich he was and how full his life was and how he doesn't even have time for this hobby it's just not as important anymore

you'd be wrong. he was gloating and smiling the whole time and kept talking about how you have to prioritize in life and "the funny books can't always come first"

like i said to the other retard racer. you weren't there. if it was just me another random shopper wouldn't have interjected from 10 feet away "we get it man you're better than us"

This is where you fucked up. You should've first asked why she was into it. Then you could conclude "so it's cause he's Asian", unless of course she actually liked it because it's a fun book or some other legit reason.

At the end of the day we all like our comics for the story, not for politically motivated reasons. It's not unreasonable to call out these /pol/ and anti-/pol/ shills when they try to pollute the comic book culture.

Lucas came up with rough outlines for 9 chapters back in the 70s. The original trilogy were all based on those concepts.

So Disney just threw those out? Not even going to stick to the original ideas at all?

If that's the case these are guaranteed to be garbage. Lucas' failures were as a director mostly. His original concepts that the entire franchise were based on were rock solid though and should have been stuck to, albeit with new scripting and a different director, as the prequels proved.

It wasn't exactly getting lucky, he created something incredibly marketable by mashing up old serials and samurai movies with some extra zen. Though most of the success was because of the creatures, costumes, and effects.
>>
>>78240738
Mostly the editors and the fact that he couldn't tell people to fuck off from making changes. I'm not saying that Lucas didn't have a great core idea, but I am saying that Star Wars would have never existed in the sense that we know it if George had full control of his creative vision at the time.
