Darth Vader #1 Dominates Advance Reorders

Darth_Vader_and_Son_coverGreetings 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, in the wake of Star Wars #1 burning through a million-strong first print (and a slightly smaller second print) Darth Vader #1 is now getting the retailer attention as they suddenly up all their numbers on the book, with a variety of cover choices, taking ten of the twenty-five advance reorder slots and one for Darth Vader #2 already.

Okay, not the image above. But any chance to run it.

Other notable books getting more intention by the launch of Guardians Team-Up, more for Spider-Verse's Amazing Spider-Man, Spider-Gwen and Spider-Woman, Black Vortex's Guardian Of The Galax,¬†Thor #5 and the new Ms. Marvel trade… with just a little love for DC's Mortal Kombat X and Harley Quinn's Valentine's Special.
