Posted by December 4, 2014 Comment

Star_Wars_1_Cassaday_cov-690x1024Greetings from the coal face of the direct comics market. Where retailers try to increase their orders of certain comics ahead of sale. Where supply and demand and most accurately reflected, where you can see which books are hot, where new orders are coming in and how retailers are reacting to new, unanticipated desire!

And this week, the Marvel relaunch of Star Wars #1 tops the advance reorder chart as a hot of new covers and the Star Wars Party promotion details are revealed, and retailers up their orders massively. Could it top half-a-million in sales as we have suggested it could?

Marvel moving the Secret Service collection up, to coincide with the film’s release has also sen benefits as retailers scramble to up their orders on this puppy too. There’s also a spate of manga orders hitting the charts, pushing the keenly anticipated Batman #38 out of the way as well. It’s starting to look a lot like Christmas…
