Avengers Vs X-Men Vs Batman Over Advance Reorders

Another look at the front end of ordering comic books. First the advance reorders from comic stores the week of the 27th of February. The books they were trying to get more copies of before the comics were sent to them.

Again, Avengers Vs X-Men is at the top , which justifies the claim that Marvel have now got more preorders for the first issue than for Civil War #1, and they also seem to be loading up with issue 0, 2 and the tie ins.

But it’s Batman that truly dominates the charts with multiple prints of Batman, Detective Comics and Dark Knight filling the top.

Whereas this chart records new orders of titles after the books have shipped, and it’s still Walking Dead mania all round. But the appearance of the Wally Wood Artists Edtion seems to have impressed retailers so much that they pushed it the top of the reorder chart.
