Original Sin Keeps Amazing Spider-Man Off Top Spot For Advance Reorders

originalsin0Greetings 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!

Amazing Spider-Man #1 may have over half a million orders from comic shops. But it's Original Sin #0 by Mark Waid and Jim Cheung that's been getting the heavy advance reorder activity this past week. It, like Amazing Spider-Man #1, has incentives for retailers to up their orders, with added discount to retailers who exceed 200% of their Avengers #25 orders. But Elektra and Guardians Of The Galaxy have no such incentives, retailers need more of them on release. There's also signs that more customers are signing on for the Batman Eternal weekly experience, and retailers are upping numbers to accommodate. Daredevil and Fuse  seemed to do well enough for retailers to up orders on subsequent issues and the Secret Origins release is also picking up attention.

And then, as always, there is The Walking Dead. Although on the already-released list, Saga is now its main rival…
