Here is one for you. Paper Girls #1 is selling out in pre-orders everywhere. Partially because of Brian k. Vaughn being attached (ok, mostly).
Signs are pointing to this being a big selling, possibly hard to find book.
Image, for a good while, was the spec darling company. Shops were not ordering as many books, Image was cutting down on their over prints, and people could not find the books in shops. Then retailers caught on and started ordering massive quantities of Image titles. That has slowed down as people are not going “all-in” on Image books the way they used to. Now that does not mean this book will not have a large print run, as it is BKV it probably will. However, Paper Girls #1 is most likely going to sell out at Diamond before the book ships, and will sell out on-line and in stores shortly after the books go on sale.
Also, intrinsically, it is a double sized first issue for $2.99, which means more bang for the buck.
