What is a pull list? Most comic book retailers offer memberships to frequent customers. You pay to have your most frequently purchased books pulled so that you don’t have to pull them off the racks. This can save you time, disappointment, and, sometimes, money.
Say you want a copy of a very popular Spider-Man / Superman crossover issue. If the book sells out quickly and you’re not a member you may miss it and have to wait until more copies arrive. If you’re a member, you get first dibs on that issue. The store will pull the issue and put it aside for you before putting the book on the shelves.
If you shop at the same shop every two weeks or month and find that your pulling a lot of books, being on a pull list is to your benefit. If you’re a casual shopper, it might be too much trouble.
Benefits of memberships vary from store to store. Every store is different; some offer books at the American cover price, while others offer a percentage discount on new releases or certain types of books. Ask your local comic book retailer about pull list membership to find out what they offer.
