Marvel Now Dominates Advance Reorders And Relegates DC

Posted by December 20, 2012 Comment

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.
