Sales on Spider-Man/Obama bring new meaning to ‘brisk’
How brisk, you ask? This was the scene at Midtown Comics Times Square yesterday, with a man at the door keeping people waiting online outside in 22 degree weather.
At the time in the mid-afternoon, there were about 15 people waiting to get in so they could get upstairs and wait on another line to purchase the rapidly dwindling stock of Amazing Spider-Man #583. Cashiers kept all copies behind the register and were running at full tilt yesterday to handle the crowd.
Midtown wouldn’t give me a number for attribution, but said they’d moved "hundreds" of copies.
