The big problem has been both Marvel and DC flooding the market with tps of forgettable 5 issue storylines from all of their books and then pricing it for $16.99 or $24.99, when anyone would go on their LCS or ebay and buy the single issues for $5-$10 on clearance.

Supposedly any trades with material older than 5 years old are likely going digital unless they are proven sellers. So no more chances on underserved comic runs.

Re: Ollie's Bargain Outlet

I've been back to all the Ollie's that I had purchased from before and they still have the same stock. I don't think their stock is getting replenished.

Went to an Ollie's out of state and managed to get these:
Graphic Ink: The DC Comics Art of Frank Quitely $9.99
Batman Noir (Azzarello/Risso) $5.99

Those are definitely stock that has been hanging around. I picked them up months ago.

In Ollie's right now. 15% off everything this week. Graphic novel section is so disorganized I don't have the patience to sort through it.

The shelves usually start out okay but get messier and messier each week. Apparently once something is put out on the floor, employees are forbidden from reorganizing them.
