ddays-casting_1_r1-copy

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, and where new orders are coming in and how retailers are reacting to new, unanticipated desire! Courtesy of stats from Diamond Comic Distributors.

And we have a mix of books, Dark Days: The Casting benefiting from a rush of retailers whio realised the FOC date was two weeks early because of that metallic cover – but it could have been more if the word had got round earlier. A definite bump on Venomverse, Redneck is gaining prominence andf Secret Empire contines to buck expectations of reduced sales. Secret Weapons gets eyes ahead of its launch, and Totally Awesome Hulk is getting a boost from its Wolverine crossover.
