Jupiter's Legacy Slips From October To January, But Tops Advance Reorder Chart

jupiters-legacyGreetings 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!

Jupiter's Legacy #4 claims to top spot this week for advance reorders. The new collection of issues 1-3 coming out the week before and a new variant cover by Ian McQue seems to have spiked advance sales on issue 4 considerably. It's ahead of the returnable-if-you-order enough Dead Boy Detectives #1 and Velvet #3. But aside from that, the chart is relatively free of retailer incentives to increase orders beyond anticipated demand. Black Science #1 clearly sold well enough to push the second print high up the chart, and New Avengers and Saga are both fuelled by recent successes.
