So the one title I told my comic shop guy to keep after cancelling my orders, he didn't get in my box. This month is still on order. He got all the rest, but not that one. And yes, I did pre-order it before I ever cancelled my future orders.

So frustrating, especially since this was the issue I was looking forward to the most. Superior Spider-Man #19.

That sucks.  Shame that the ONE book you told him to pull he missed.  I hate going to the shop for just one book, and it's not there.  It shouldn't be hard to find though.  Spidey is overprinted for sure.

Turns out he didn't order ANY of them, for anyone. Made a mistake on the orders. He also said he tried to re-order them, and they were already sold-out. Had to buy it online and pay shipping.

Is this a comic shop or just a shop that buys comics ... like a gaming store or book store? I ask because you have said he also keeps no inventory and never orders more comics than his customers do.

It's a "collectibles" shop. Comics, sports memorabilia, gaming cards, autographed framed photos, etc.

He does order a handful of extra comics, on the top highest selling titles only. But for the most part, he orders enough for his pre-order customers, and if you aren't there on Wednesday, when comics go out, and you didn't pre-order it; then chances are you aren't gonna get it.

However in this case, I don't think he's ever made a mistake that big. This was a one-time screw-up.

Oh I hear ya. Just wanted to verify that the "comics" side was not his only (or main) source of income, so the mistake was not the killer one that it could've been. Mistakes happen, without doubt.
