'Stop Playing Games'

David Luebke of Dave's Comics in Richmond,Virginia shares his frustration in dealing with advance solicitation information provided by some publishers.
As to the advance solicitations from Marvel and DC, even on the FCBD books, please grow up and stop playing games. We are professionals and when we order products from you, we need maximum info so we can make an intelligent decision to PROPERLY quantify our order.
Being told that your products are a "secret" and that we must order by faith, rather than experience, logic, economy, etc. is stupid and HARMFUL to us and the industry.
