Batman #92 Tops Advance Reorders Two Weeks In A Row

The Advance Reorders chart, last week and the week before that reflected that all of the DC Comics orders through Diamond were dropped to zero, meaning every retailer had to amend their order on FOC from scratch, which saw DC totally dominate. There's still a bit of that this week, but this time, there is more competition from other publishers. Batman #92 had a quarter of a million copies originally ordered, so its staying power at the top spot for two weeks may be ezpected, but James Tynion IV also got a placement for Something Is Killing The Children as well.
