Greetings 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 courtesy of stats from Diamond Comic Distributors.

Monsters Unleashed takes the top spot, followed by more Marvel launches of Hulk, USAvengers, Rocket Raccoon, Unstoppable Wasp and Deadpool Duck. But it’s Unworthy Thor, Old Man Logan, Avengers and Champions that are the more impressive, as retailers race to up their orders on subsequent issues of the series, showing that they are performing better than expected. On that basis, devoid of launches, DC also does well with Batman Justice League Vs Suicide Squad and Superman outperforming their other titles.
