Because they have the same thing in stock already. I tried it. It's weird. This is why, if people want their comics to gain value, they should go to the store, buy identicals, and burn them.
Or, get more people to read comics.
Yeah, my LCS hardly ever buys anything unless it's some variant that they know they can move.
Ebay is really the best bet for moving large loads of comics, I think. I've gotten some great deals on there, and it's a good way to get them to other collectors trying to finish runs.
I really try to get people to give comics a shot. I've gotten my wife reading them, and my friend Angela borrows Fables and Y and some other trades from me occaisonally, and she really dug Watchmen. I'm going to have her read Invisibles as soon as I get them all.
