    Default Marvel Now Dominates Advance Reorders And Relegates DC

    Another look at the week's advance reorders, the front line of the retail war on comics, with retailers desperately trying to up their orders on certain products before they come out as the public suddenly decide that, actually, they want this comic after all. The chart overrepresents second prints and variants, as this can be the only way these products can be ordered.

    Marvel Now continues to dominate the advance reorder charts, the only DC comic in the top twenty-five is a variant, with the Avengers and X-Men comics dominating. Indestructible Hulk continues to perform above expectation, and the launches of Young Avengers, Savage Wolverine and Deadpool Killustrated are doing very well indeed.

    But in the midst of all this, is the Star Wars launch... as we now know, one of the last Dark Horse Star Wars project. Expect this to get even more attention as a result.

    TOP 25 ADVANCE REORDER COMICS/GRAPHIC NOVELS/TPs (RETAIL)?*?*?*?*?*?*?*?*?*?*?*?*?*?*?*

    Which really just means that retailers KNOW what to order on DC now... As opposed to under order Marvel NOW and scrambling to get extra copies of books that customers actually want to buy. Seems like a non-story.

    Awww all Marvel had to do to get back on top is release all their Books every other week taking any fan that enjoys reading both companies near broke.... Seriously I like a lot of the Marvel now titles, but they are really overwhelming my pocket book as I like to read DC, Marvel, and Indie stuff. They need to go back to being purely monthly, or I'm going to drop Marvel books just because I can't afford them

    Anybody have a clue as to why a five-year old hulk Omnibus would be seeing such activity? Going OOP? Major discount?

    I was in four different comics stores in Massachusetts today, and saw tons of copies of Marvel NOW books (both issues 1 and 2) sitting on shelves, looking like hopeful-faced animals wanting to be adopted into a loving home...unfortunately, I feel that these "animals" will someday be destroyed because no one wanted them...

    Same here. Yesterday I went to a shop that I hadn't been to before. Tons of Marvel Now #1's, Uncanny Avengers by the boatload collecting silverfish, and of course, tons of Before Watchmen books, including stacks of #1's still on the shelves
