Rick Remender Tops Advance Reorder List With Deadly Class And Black Science – Dead Body Road Follows Close Behind

STK629559Greetings from the coal face of the direct comics market. Where retailers try to increase their orders of certain comics ahead of sale. Where supply and demand and most accurately reflected, where you can see which books are hot, where new orders are coming in and how retailers are reacting to new, unanticipated desire!

We’ve seen that Black Science #2 has become a rather hot property of late. And it seems to have affected advance reorders as retailers up their numbers on issue 3 and the second print of issue 2, though issue 3 is fully returnable if retailers order enough.

This is topped however by advance reorders on Deadly Class #1, also returnable if retailers order enough (based on orders of Black Science #1).

Dead Body Road is also returnable if retailers order enough of #2, but its an indication than issue 1 did rather well.

And yes, they’re all Image comics. But Boom’s Hacktivist launch may be the surprise as retailers suddenly begin to up their numbers.
