Mysterious Strangers Draws Significant Advance Reorders – Superman Unchained, Batman Zero Year, Astro City, Fabulous Killjoys And Six Gun Gorilla Don’t Do Badly Either

Posted by June 19, 2013 Comment

ms1Our regular look at Advance Reorders in the comic industry, seeing which books retailers are upping their orders on while they can, ahead of publication. On the news of that Superior Spider-Man Team Up sales promotion, issue 1 hits the top, but the renamed Mysterious Strangers from Oni is doing pretty well too – the name change seems to have drawn a lot of retailers towards it.

Tbere’s a lot of good second issue syndrome at work here, where high sales and enjoyment of issue 1 has seen retailers rushing to up their order on issue 2, rather than let it drop down as usual. Superman Unchained, Batman Zero Year,  Astro City, Fabulous Killjoys and Six Gun Gorilla all benefit from that, and retailers look minded to up their orders on Image and Vertigo launches, Ghosted and Collider.
And for books that have already been published, a new print of Johnny The Homicidal Maniac is gathering many, many orders, as retailers stock up, uncertain when they’ll be able to be able to get this perennial favourite again, beating out even the new Walking Dead collection.
