Diamond Comics Advanced Reorder list 6/21/13


Sorry for getting this out late.

One way to tell what comic has heat to it is seeing what retailers are ordering. The Diamond Comics Advanced reorder list shows what retailers are increasing their orders on before the books come out. A lot of books on the list tend to be new books retailers are being asked about or second issues that retailers enjoyed success with selling the first issue. So without further ado, this week’s advanced reorders.

  1. Superior Spiderman Team-up #1 – People seem to love Spider-Ock and his books sell well. New series.
  2. Superman Unchained #2 – Who is the “real Superman”? First issue sold well even with high cover price.
  3. Mysterious Strangers #1 – Hit Oni Press free comic books day issue garnered interest in this series. New Sixth Gun or Helheim for Oni? Only time will tell
  4. Mysterious Strangers #2 – Only time will tell until we get to #4 on this list.
  5. East of West #4 Blank Sketch Variant – Hit Series from Hickman getting the blank sketch treatment. People love these for getting convention sketches. Walking Dead did one and price shot up to $8 overnight.
