Harley Quinn Leads More DC Dominance Over Advance Reorders

harleycoverfinal

Mikel Janin's retailer exclusive cover of Harley Quinn #1 for Comics Conspiracy.

Greetings from the coal face of the direct comics market. Where, courtesy of Diamond Daily, Diamond's e-newsletter for retailers, they 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!

Reorders on both Harley Quinn and the team book she stars in, Suicide Squad, dominate the list for DC Rebirth with Nightwing close behind on the back of its performance in its Rebirth issue, with Justiuce League as well pushing aside the increase in attention given to the first meeting of Riri Williams and Tony Stark in Invincible Iron Man #12.

There's also a strong showing for the Walking Dead after last issue's shock ending and the launch of the new Brubaker/Phillips book Kill Or Be Killed.
