Secret Wars Titles Dominate Advance Reorders For Another Week

STK682836Greetings 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!

The availability of the decampi version of Secret Wars tie-in X-Men 92 digitally weeks ahead of the print version seems to have given the title a shot in the arm as retailers rush to up the orders of what may have been a lacklustre sales in comparison with other Secret Wars titles as a result.

It could be slightly embarrassing for Marvel, on a day where their big PR push doesn't mention the X-Men at all, to have an X-title being the one retailers are most ready to up their orders on.

But plenty of other Secret Wars titles benefit from increased orders, taking nine of the twenty-five slots, Star Wars titles taking four,  DC YOU taking three and both Spider-Gwen and Fight Club taking two. Honourable mention for the second issue of Mythic
