Punchline Sees Batman #92 Utterly Dominate Advance Reorders

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! And courtesy of stats from Diamond Comic Distributors.

Advance Reorders

And it's Batman #92, yes, featuring Punchline, that tops the charts again with three cover variants in the top three, pushing out even a J Scott Campbell variant cover of Black Widow. That is the power of Punchline. Both Strange Adventures and Strange Academy (no relation) got a big bump from ther first issue performance, and retailers have also realised that a new The Boys series may do well. Empyre gets a boost for its zero issues, and the launches of Ludocrats, Skylin and Taskmaster all get a boost too…
