Advance Comic Book Reorders Are Down With Vader Down

STK688969STK689086

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 the top advance reorders for comics this week are dominated by the Star Wars Vader Down crossover. But retailers are also responding to the Darkseid War crossover, their inability to ever keep Saga on the shelf, the success of the first issue of Extraordinary X-Men being reaped by the third, the launch of Venom Space Knight and Moon Girl And Devil Dinosaur, the performance of the first issue of Black Magick, and even some newfound love for Snoopy. That's the most surprising entry for me…
