Big Bang Comics Becomes Latest Shop To Ditch Marvel Lenticular Covers

In early August, All New Comics openly said no to Marvel's lenticular covers.

Following All New Comics' announcement that they won't be ordering a single Marvel lenticular cover, Big Bang Comics is the latest shop to drop the variant covers. The comics shop, located in Dublin, Ireland, took to Twitter to let customers know they'll have to look elsewhere, due to Marvel's ordering process.

According to BBC, Marvel is making them jump through hoops to get the comics, under a meet or exceed order requirement. This would mean having to order up to 170% more on a regular title than needed in order to be able to order the lenticular variants. BBC claims that they've been in touch with around 70 other retailers who share their concerns.
