The Diamond Comics advanced reorder list used to be speculation gold. You could see what was gaining interest and causing retailers to scramble to get copies before final order cut off. You would see which books would be selling out early. Now, and for the past 5 weeks, it has been about Dc Villains month. The reorders on this week’s list are no surprise as retailers scrambled to get the standard cover of each book as their 3-d books had been allocated.
There are a couple of gems worth looking out for on here though:
1. Batman The Dark Knight #23.4 Joker’s Daughter Standard cover
2. Justice League #23.4 Secret Society Standard cover
3. Batman #23.4 Bane Standard cover
4. Justice League of America #7.4 Black Adam Standard cover
