Secret Empire #0 Tops Advance Reorders As Redneck Reaps The Whirlwind Of God Country

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.

The Button issues can only be purchased via Advance Reorders. Aside from those, Secret Empire #0 tops the advance reorders as predicted, after Marvel send heavily watermarked versions to comic book retailers last week. X-Men Gold has also put on heavy reorders in advance of sales expectations for the ResurrXion line. But the big jump is for Redneck #1 as writer Donny Cates becomes one of the hottest writers on the market, as God Country #1 goes to fourth print. Captain America, Venom, US Avengers and Thunderbolts also get a boost, as does Boom’s WWE.

Oh and the most popular April Fool’s variant cover from Image that has put on most advance reorders (and there are a few)? The one for Plastic #1 that parodies the wedding of Spider-Man and Mary Jane Watson. Those Spider-marriage fans can really make an impact.
