Webhead, Taegukgi, Spider-Man and Alien Top Advance Reorders

The Patrick Gleason "Webhead" cover to Carnage: Black, White And Blood really boosted retailer advance reorders this week, as did interest in the Korean Captain America in Taskmaster, both outdoing Spider-Man getting a new costume and the launch of a new Alien series from Marvel. While other retailers took the opportunity to top up their Department Of Truth back issues.
