COMIC QUEST’S PULL & HOLD SERVICES…NOTES FROM THE INSIDE!(Part 3)

Over the last two weeks we have talked a bit about how the P&H services for CQ works…or in some cases, doesn’t work. The following are some of the glitches that we see from time to time that makes our P&H service an inexact practice. The first thing that you need to know is that the majority of our titles can have the number of books ordered, up or down, three weeks prior to them shipping.  If a comic is ongoing we have a sales history to look at that typically tells us how many Uncanny X-men or Aquaman comics to order each month. Occasionally a specific story-line, the introduction of a new character or some blinding artwork can increase the popularity of a title quickly...

COMIC QUEST’S PULL & HOLD SERVICES…NOTES FROM THE INSIDE!(Part 2)

This week we thought we would detail the work we do each Tuesday when the comic book order and other related
merchandise(toys, supplies, posters,apparel, statues etc), come into the store. First, before the shipment is in the
store, we have to rotate last weeks comics, toys and trade-paperback to different sections of the store to make room for
the new product. Then, we do pick tickets on all the sub and special orders that are arriving in the shipment. Then, we
go to the UPS center and pick up our packages. When we return to the store we lay out all of the comics and trade-
paperbacks...

COMIC QUEST’S PULL & HOLD SERVICES…NOTES FROM THE INSIDE!(Part 1)

As most of you know, CQ offers a free pull and hold service. We thought it would be helpful for you to know how the service works and provide details of the deadlines and tasks involved in providing the service. We hope we can show how important it is to work within the parameters and constraints of the realities of our industry and the current retail environment as it relates to comic book entertainment stores.   First, lets address how orders are placed for our products. All comics, trade-paperbacks, toys, and collectibles are placed in our distributor’s catalog, Previews, three months prior to most of the comics appearing on the stand...

CQ ANNOUNCES NEW POLICY REGARDING “HOT TITLES and HOT VARIANTS ” ON NEW COMICS DAY!

        Recently we have observed a new phenomenon associated with internet web-sites publishing the latest “hot” book, using posting a day or a couple of days before the book is on sale,  followed by collector’s rushing in to buy as many copies as possible. CQ has always wanted to sell as many copies of each comic book as possible. However, at this point we feel it is important to announce the following policy. On new comic book day and the subsequent week, we reserve the right to limit the purchasing of individual books to one per person unless permission is obtained beforehand...
