Forever Evil Tops Advance Reorders, Image Grabs The Rest

STK626864Retailers have been caught on the back foot on the continual success of DC’s big crossover event, Forever Evil, without suffering the sales dropoff that retailers seemed to expect, necessitating they increase orders rather dramatically.

That’s followed sharply by recent Image launches, Black Science and Pretty Deadly, though both are made returnable if retailers order enough. Which looks like is what’s actually happening. And the Jupiter’s Legacy collection-so-far-to-make-up-for-Frank-Quitely’s-schedule has taken advantage of no second prints on the book, at a low price point. More on that later. Black Kiss also gets a big reorder push…
