In the previous post, I was using Muncie as an example of a town that ought to be able to support more comics shops than it does given that it’s a college town (Ball State). As I’m well aware because I shop there, Alter Ego Comics is in Muncie, and store owner Jason is great and will order anything you ask him to order. I recommend Jason’s store highly. But even Alter Ego (like most stores) can’t afford to stock especially wide or deep on non-Premier titles without customers asking for them in advance, not in the way a megastore in Los Angeles or New York can. That was my point, no slight to Jason intended. I’ll go back and edit “Muncie” to “Tupelo, MS” for clarity.
