Each week we point out books that we think may have some heat behind them or are picking up steam. Here are the books that are delivered this Wednesday 6/26/13 worth checking out. Do you have a favorite book or book that you think is worth checking out? Respond below or join the conversation at www.facebook.com/comicsheatingup .
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. Continue reading “Diamond Comics Advanced Reorder list 6/21/13”
Not long ago we noticed an increase inthe selling price on ‘The Strain’ #1, a book that originally was selling for $1 and we were able to find a several copies in shops for quick profit. Then the news came out about it going to the silver screen. Prices popped even further.
IDW announced two sold out books this week, ‘Half Past Danger’ #1 and 2 and ‘Wild Blue Yonder’ #1.
‘Wild Blue Yonder’ had a print run of 12,327 and was sold out before it hit the stands. This does not mean that your local comic shop does not have copies, it means that they cannot reorder first prints after they sell out.
I have store variants and Phantom Variants signed by the creative team for sale if anyone is interested. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or hit us up on facebook at www.facebook.com/comicsheatingup for pricing and details.
Looks like IDW had a couple of recent releases that did pretty well. IDW was proud to announce that their book ‘Half Past Danger’ #1 and 2 are sold out at the distributor level and would be going back for a second printing. The second book came out last week. This had previously been one of our picks of the week. The print run on number 1 was fairly small for a new book at only 8,500 copies.
I do have the subscription variant available
if anyone is interested. Discount rates for multiple copies purchased. Email me at email@example.com if interested or hit us up on facebook at www.facebook.com/comicsheatingup
Joe Hill’s Locke and Key comic book has been optioned for a movie according to The Hollywood Reporter. The book follows a widow and her three children who move to an old family home controlled by mysterious keys that open doors that have supernatural powers.
The book had previously been optioned for a tv show for Fox but was passed over due to budget restraints and other reasons. The original miniseries already sell at a premium but grab and hold until the news spreads and prices increase further.
Thanks to Schwaeger for bringing this to my attention yesterday on our Facebook Site.
Rumors are going around the message boards that the fan favorite comic ‘Think Tank’ by Matt Hawkins had been optioned for a movie deal. Now Bleeding Cool is echoing the rumor as well.
Maybe an announcement will come at Image Expo on July 2nd.

Each Tuesday we pick which books we are speculating on to be the “big” books of the week. This week we have some really interesting picks. Check them out below and let us know what you think:
So DC is doing their road show to promote their upcoming books, including the new Sandman book. As a promo, they gave out Superman Unchained #1 3d variant. This isn’t like the old school needing glasses 3d from the past, instead thy are using new 3d lenticular technology. This is the same type cover coming up on their villains month books.
Within hours of the book being given out, one copy sold for over $400. If you can sweet talk your local retailer into letting theirs go, or they have one going for a decent price, this one would be worth picking up and flipping.
I will admit that the past couple of reorder lists have been fairly boring. Not too much for speculators to pick through. The past through weeks have been cock full of Tpbs and hard covers which I usually gloss over or leave out all together. This months is different. The advanced reorder list is what retailers are stocking up on before the issues are released. They may have heard speculation, have had people asking about books, or had the previous issue sell well or sell out.
This weeks list sees some new books (which look to sell out) and major cross over books.
See the list after the bump.
