First of all this is my first thread on Comic Vine, been here for a while but rarely post.
The new 52 has generated a lot of hype and people seem to be excited about the relaunch (mostly). As I went to one of my local comic book shops, last week to buy Batgirl #1, Detective Comics #1, and Action Comics #1, I noticed that they were already bagged and boarded with a price tag of $10.00! They were not sold out, that's what they were marked on the day of their release. Not wanting to by a brand new comic for $10.00, I went to other comic book shops trying to get these issues and they were gone by the end of the night.
Has anyone come across this before? I understand if they are sold out but this is day one! Not a month, hell, not even a week after the release! This comic shop has been around for a long time and it really bums me out that they would do this because of the demand of these comics. Green Lantern comes out tomorrow and I'm dreading to see it priced about the same because it's #1. Is this Okay for a comic book shop to do this?
PS- Sorry if there are any misspellings
