Advance Reorders – Silk Trees With Blue Roses

trees-03-90adeGreetings from the coal face of the direct comics market. Where retailers try to increase their orders of certain comics ahead of sale. Where supply and demand and most accurately reflected, where you can see which books are hot, where new orders are coming in and how retailers are reacting to new, unanticipated desire!

A bunch of second prints do the business on this chartm with Outcast #1, Wolverine #8. Figment #1 and Batman '66 #1, with Outcast #2 playing catch up. The introduction of Silk in Amazing Spider-Man #4 has bumped numbers, and retailers are waking up to desire for a Storm ongoing series. The giving away of Warren Ellis' Trees #1 digitally seems to have boosted orders for the print comic, with Trees #3 getting the benefit and his Supreme: Blue Rose #1 launch getting a bunch as well.
