DC Comics 2D Covers Continue To Dominate Advance Reorders

300px-Indestructible_Hulk_Vol_1_13_TextlessGreetings 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!

But in this case, it's full of retailers trying to make up for being allocated on the 3D Villains Month covers for September and trying to make up the numbers on the 2D versions, taking 22 of the 25 spots on the chart. With variants and crossovers making up the other numbers, all credit to Indestructible Hulk for making it into the chart, as the performance of recent issues, Hulk in the timestream, has caused more interest in the book.
