(In a comic-book stand ) She  was cutting the front page of the comic book in half and keeping the top half of the comic book cover and throwing the rest of the comic book into a large brown cardboard box. When I asked her what she did with the comic books, she said, "I throw them away. I give the top half of the cover back to the comic-book distributor for credit when he brings in the new comics. He's coming in an hour."

Thank you

算账用的。把封面上半截撕下来,表示没有卖出去,交给送货人拿回去销账。一般报亭对报纸、杂志都是这样处理。

I guess the Chinese explanation is correct :

"Soon the distributor arrived and I asked him if we could have the comic books. To which he replied, "You can have them if you work for this store and do not resell them."
