Cannabis Puts Harley Quinn At The Top Of The Advance Reorder Charts

ekqw2cpyrhj2aaomfvwf

Greetings 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!

This week, the Harley Quinn Annual, split into two cover varieties, each managed to get more advance orders than anything else, including the ever popular The Wicked + The Divine extra variant cover. Deathstroke #1 getting a Monster variant cover, and increased orders on Axis #3 also fell in its wake.

That's what happens when you announce to everyone that the comic, with it's generis scratch'n'snigg mechanic will include the whiff of cannabis. Even though, with your $5.99, you could probably…

Ah, let's no go there.
