Spread Spreads Out And Dominates Advance Reorders

Spread-02

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!

Well, the performance of recent issues of Amazing Spider-Man has given its bump to the first Spider-Verse titled title. And Legendary pushing the release of their Godzilla book through DC seems to have paid out in spades for them. But it's the new Image series Spread by Justin Jordan and Kyle Strahm  that is, well, spread out across the advance reorders for the next issue and third and second prints of the first two issues. Life imitates art, it seems.

And the new Guardians Of The Galaxy movie is boosting sales all over the place, especially the Abnett and Lanning complete collection, on which much of it was based.
