Retailers Up Their Orders For Ardian Syaf’s Final Issue Of X-Men: Gold #3

Posted by April 14, 2017 Comment

494762-_sx1280_ql80_ttd_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.

There is no context. Not even against the Flash and Batman button issues which can only be ordered by Advance Reorder. Retailers have upped their orders on Secret Empire #1 more than anything else.

There is also increased anticipation for All New Guardians Of The Galaxy, Jean Grey, Black Bolt, Bane Conquest, Eternal Empire, Venom #150 and the final issue of Dark Knight III.

And with the insanity over the performance of X-Men Gold instore, retailers are upping their orders for X-Men Gold #3 for Ardain’s final issue – and probably final issue for Marvel Comics.

Walking Dead continues to outperform retailers expectations and they seem unable to increase their orders quickly enough. Running sales on those zombies…
