Marvel NOW And Image Firsts Dominate Advance Reorders

Of late, the advance reorder lists have been filled with second prints, variant covers and high value prestige items, it seems that general, regular everyday comics weren;t getting the reorder activity they used to.

Marvel NOW! seems to have changed that. Admittedly some is due to new incentives being offered before FOC, but nevertheless there seem to be lot of retailers upping their Marvel numbers in the last few weeks before shipping. Cable And X-Force, Avengers Arena, Iron Man and Fantastic Four are all beneficiaries, Amazing Spider-Man #699.1, which had previously suffered the curse of the point one orders, gets a batch of reorders, as does Batman And Robin #15, now with its die cut cover, and Suicide Squad #15 on the back of the instant #14 sellout. Walking Dead #105 shows that retailers are still not ordering enough of the comic initially and that the market is reacting,. But the bigger Image story is the success of the one dollar first issue books, that dominate the chart. No guesses which is the best selling of those…

And in the aftermarket, demand for the AVX Omnibus knocks Superman Earth One and Walking Dead aside, followed by a slightly surprising Underwater Welder.
