i been to local comic shops (since i'm not allow to go out of states and order stuff online) but if anyone near the houston area or somebody selling the UmBrella Academy series...please ocontact me about them...exclaimexclaimexclaimexclaim
If the comic shop you're going to won't order a book for you then its definitely time to consider going to another shop. I don't know of anything that would prevent them from ordering it aside from laziness. I don't think the trades of The Umbrella Academy are out of print. I really doubt it now that Geek and Sundry have it up as a motion comic.
As for not daring to go into Barnes and Nobles, is this a personal decision, our did you snap in the middle of the store from an overdose of the Starbucks coffee and they won't let you back in? Too many of those White Chocolate Mochas can drive folks over the edge.
ohh no it's nothing like that... i hate being accused of s**t and they thought i was with a crowd of punk kids that they're stealing s**t and when they saw i wasn't and i wasn't stealing i made a vow to never buy from them. they're a few things i hate being acuse of cheating on my lovely fanice, stealing, and being call a lier.... and branes and noble did the 2 of out of the three... our comics shops down are s**t... i rather buy off of somebody
Well, I can certainly understand not wanting to frequent a place that made false accusations against you. Perhaps there's another bookstore in your area that can handle ordering it for you. Since you said you're not allowed to order stuff online that's about your only option, aside from asking for the books for your birthday.
