Phantom Lady Gets Phantom Reorders…

Oops.

Looks like Phantom Lady #4 was missed out from the Diamond solicitations for November. Which is why, as orders are automatically added to retailer accounts to match their orders for issue 3, it rockets to the top of the advance reorder charts. As ever, subsequent prints and variant covers are often overrepresented on these charts for similar reasons.

The genuine successes are Scott Pilgrim, rare for a hardcover to enter this chart, as the sales of the first colour hardcover have been very strong indeed. AVX Consequences is getting a last minute bump for its final issue and Jeremiah also makes a hardcover entrance.

And for comics that have already shipped, as well as the usual Batman and Walking Dead, we have Justice League, Man Thing, Johnny The Homicidal Maniac, Sandman and A Tale Of Sand gaining strong positions with Uncanny X-Men #1 as the highest single issue on the chart.
