Shield And Angela Top Advance Reorder Charts, With Sex Tips Inappropriately Close Behind

SHIELD2014001-cov-1aa1eGreetings 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!

This week, the New Year's Eve-launching new Shield series has topped the advance reorders, wit variant covers also charting. Other launches making the top of the chart include Angela: Asgard's Assassin and Thanos Vs Hulk. But joining the party is Matt Fraction and Chip Zdarsky's Just The Tips sex guide book cobbled together from the letters pages of Sex Criminals. Clearly a lot of interest in this book…
