The Walking Dead Dominates 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.

Advance Reorders

It's really all about The Walking Dead. The interest in the most recent issue and the full returnability offered of the next took the top two spots. With Black Cat's Carnage cover by Mark Brooks bringing up the rear. Here is also an unusually high uptick for Humanoids' new series Strangelands.
