Don't get me wrong, I'm extremely grateful for the discount, but if I'm going to have trouble getting my books, then I'm going to do the equivalent of the money I'm saving at the new place on tube fares to Gosh. Which is exactly what I ended up doing today!
You see, I was convinced that Fear Agent did come out this week and, while I'm sure he was sincere in his belief that all the West End shops would be sold out of Green Lantern, I love the book so much that I had to see for myself. Gosh had both comics + Gigantic AND Lord Hurk's latest offering, Urgent Telex (which to be honest I had planned on visiting Gosh to pick up anyway).
Now, I don't want to knock Fantastic Realm too hard, because in the main they seem just fine. I understand that they are a newer and smaller outfit than the West End stores, I was also well aware when I signed up that they didn't have as much independent stuff as I'd like and, of course, they do give me an excellent discount. As long as they don't read this and throw me out on my ear, I'm happy to continue shopping with them, but I do hope that today's problems don't become a weekly occurrence.
