Most of the time comic books are our private little thing - the thing that the 5-6% of cool Americans enjoy. But every once in a while the media jumps onto a comic book event and suddenly people who haven't bought comics in years, or ever, want to see what's going on and buy a piece of that history. Of course many are doing so in the hope that if they save it for a few years it will be worth big money.
You may have seen that recently even Archie comics has been getting in on the media action. Diamond notified retailers in our daily mailer that, "Coverage on Yahoo.com, in the New York Post, ABC News’ Good Morning America and CNN are sure to drive curious readers to the newsstands and comic book shops, some of whom may not have picked up a comic book in years"
And keep your eyes peeled because Marvel is insisting that the media will jump on Captain America #600 with such force that retailers can get an advanced release of this issue (more on that as events unfold!)
As always, if you want to be sure to get a copy you can reserve one from Neptune in advance. Once the buzz hits there's no guarantee you'll be able to get one if you want it unless you have asked ahead.
