…Or Why the “Spotify Model” would be bad for comics.

An essay.

Disclaimer: This is written from my somewhat limited understanding of business models and intellectual properties and should be taken as an opinion-piece… also it’s a bit hypocritical because I have been known to use Spotify (with…

I think we can all agree that pre-ordering comic books is important, right? Let’s face it—your local shop is awesome, but can’t be expected to order every single title that comes out each month. Comic book orders are due roughly two months before the release date, and a retailer has to choose stock very carefully. Many times, this means ordering only “safe bet” comic books, and many great titles slip through the cracks. Pre-order, though, and you let your comic book retailer know that there’s interest in an upcoming book. 
This is good for you, because you can make sure you don’t miss out on the stuff you want to read. 
It’s good for the retailer, because a pre-order means the sale is a “sure thing.” 
It’s good for other readers. When a pre-order comes in, stores will often order additional copies for the shelf. This gives new readers the opportunity to check out a book they might not have normally heard about.
It’s good for publishers and creators, because when people order the books, we can keep telling great stories. 
While I think pre-ordering is  especially important for creator-owned titles, this goes for pretty much any comic book. Please don’t assume that your shop will carry a particular title!
To pre-order, all you have to do is head to your local comic book shop (if you don’t know where that is, you can visit this link to search them out!) and let them know what books you’re after. 
To make it even easier for you, we’ve created this BRIDES OF HELHEIM pre-order form. Print it out, fill in some information, drop it off at your shop, and they’ll make sure you get your books!
What is BRIDES OF HELHEIM, you ask? It’s the story of undead Vikings, black magic, sea monsters, demons, sex, and violence. It’s a Viking-era Frankenstein tale, if the Frankenstein monster tussled with witches and demon-bears and monsters in addition to his own self-loathing. It’s illustrated by Joelle Jones, colored by Nick Filardi, and written by Cullen Bunn. The first issue comes out in October, so you need to order by September 8.
For more information on the series, you can check out my site. If you haven’t read the first series (which isn’t necessary to read BRIDES OF HELHEIM but you’ll love it anyhow) you can pick up or order the trade paperback collection when you drop off your order form. 
Thanks, folks! 
Happy pre-ordering

It all depends on the books in an arc. The second arc was 5 issues in length. So far, the others have worked out so that they collect will with 6 issues.
