Superman Secret Identity Reveal Tops Advance Reorders

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, where new orders are coming in and how retailers are reacting to new, unanticipated desire! And courtesy of stats from Diamond Comic Distributors. Just as we suggested it might, the reveal of Superman's identity to the world (again) from Brian Bendis, Ivan Reis and Joe Prado has topped the Advance Reorder charts, but Undiscovered Country and the Daniel Warren Johnson Wonder Woman book did pretty damn well too. Far Sector has also benefitted from a strong performance for the first issue. And still no second printing for Superman #17…  but Boom is getting more of a regular presence, here with Something Is Killing The Children and Red Mother.

WB Games Has Killed Two "Superman" Games Since 2013
