    Guy has a 5 title minimum... So far I've come down to...

    -The Astounding Wolf-Man (ends on issue 25)
    -Haunt (Kirkman and McFarlane :bowdown:)
    -Ultimate Comics: Spider-Man
    -Blackest Night
    -The Dark Avengers

    I wanted to add the Walking Dead and Invincible but... Seeing as there's no way I'll be able to get issues 1 - 60 of either series any time soon, I decided not to.

    Oh and in shit news:
    My Astounding Wolf-Man #1 - #18 came in the mail... Keep in mind #1 was signed by Kirkman...
    Someone had pulled open the corner of our mailbox and was able to get a knife or keys or something in there, slit open the top of the box and pulled out the comics they could actually reach...

    They stole #1 (signed), The Director's Cut and #2... :wtc:
    Shitty way to find out I can't trust my new apartment's mailbox.

    Zing

    Seriously though, I'm just going to have shit sent to my parent's place.
    Mail Security and it forces me to go see 'em. I don't visit enough.

    Also, I don't see why you would need to have the entire run to buy new issues. You can collect based off of story arcs.

    When a series is only 25 issues long, I gotta' have the full run.
    As for TWD or Invincible, Im not into collecting them this late into the game. It's just late enough for me to realize collecting the series would be difficult, but early enough for me to keep thinking about it.
    I'm an odd collector like that.

    Some pull box requirements do not include mini-series.

    Personally, I think minimum requirements on a pull list is pathetic. My very first comic shop had that and I was only following about 3 books, with a 5 book minimum. As soon as I figured out that wasn't the only shop in town, I quit going.

    We'll do a pull box for any number, but only give the discounts for a minimum of 5.

    He was cool about mini-series pulls. Whenever the series ends, I'll just hop onto a different title.

    Some fucker who has my irreplaceable signed copy of Wolf-Man #1, Director's Cut and #2 :squint::wtc:
