Dark Ark #2 Booms On Retailers’ Advance Reorders

Posted by October 9, 2017 Comment

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 chart is of full of second prints, FOC covers and Local Comic Shop Day items which can only be ordered this way, but you can see that Flash‘s Metal crossover is gaining steam, and so is the new AfterShock series Dark Ark, on the back of a sellout for the first issue and retailers rushing to up their numbers – and the same goes for Amazing Spider-Man, Nightwing and Weapon X.
