So awhile ago I was pretty into comic books and read them and collected them a lot. A new local comic shop opened back home and I went in there every week to support it and really liked the owners and subscribed to a bunch of books. Then I joined the military and before I left I cut back some of my subscriptions and pretty much let them know I wouldn't be around as much but I'd have someone pick my books up.
Well I haven't been home since last April and apparently they called my house last week saying I need to come pick up my books (my dad never got around to picking any up). I think I'm only subscribed to 3-4 books....which I figure at $4 each should be maybe $16-20 a month....
Well personally I don't want all of those books from the last 7 months. I'm going home on Monday on leave and I'm going to swing by the shop, but I wonder do you think as a comic shop owner they'd be pissed if I didn't buy all of the books they saved for me?
I mean I really like them, and I should've just canceled all of my books but I didn't want to because I like the shop. It would've been fine if my dad would've stopped by and picked a few up here and there so I could've paid for them over a longer period of time, but I don't want to go drop $100 on comic books next week when I'd rather use that money to do stuff with my friends while I'm on leave.
If you were a comic owner do you think you'd understand? Or do I have an obligation to purchase all of the books since I was subscribed and now they can't get as much money for the back issues?
Just curious what the comic book shop attitude might be.
