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, and where new orders are coming in and how retailers are reacting to new, unanticipated desire! Courtesy of stats from Diamond Comic Distributors.

Dark Days: The Forge saw its Final Order Cut-Off brought forward by two weeks, courtesy of a foil cover — and retailers have rewarded that. Will they have upped their numbers enough? The launch of Peter Parker, The Spectacular Spider-Man gets a double boost from a party promotion to the positively unburnt appearance in Secret Empire FCBD. And Secret Empire also escapes the flames with the performance of the first issue, getting a boost for the third.

There are also significant boosts for Cable and Titans: Lazarus Contract.
