The Wicked + The Divine Tops Advance Reorders, Courtesy Of Stephanie Hans

hansThe Stephanie Hans variant cover above, promoted for Final Order Cut-Off date certainly helped. But the increase in advance orders for The Wicked + The Divine #3 over any other comic does give the impression that things have done rather well for the first two issues. Image's Fade Out also looks like it's headed for an excitable launch, and the Multiversity promotion at San Diego certainly seems to have encouraged retailers to bump up orders, even at the $4.99 cover price. The TV show seems to have pushed up orders on Dark Horse's The Strain and there was a lot of excitement at San Diego for Little Nemo as well
