The Origin of Bruce Wayne by Tom King and Travis Moore Tops Advance Reorders

Posted by December 7, 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.

Batman #38 by Tom King and Travis Moore features “The Origin of Bruce Wayne”. And, in the wake of Batman Annual #2 and this week’s Batman #36, it looks like retailers are scrambling to keep up…

If Mattie could grow up to be anybody, he’d grow up millionaire playboy Bruce Wayne. But what would happen if he was forced to relive the worst tragedy of Bruce’s life and his parents were murdered? Batman’s hunt for the killer puts him face to face with a strange mirror version of his own past.

There’s also considerable attention given to Batman: White Knight, Damage, Batman: The Signal, swamping Marvel advance reorders for Rogue & Gambit, Captain America, Star Wars and Astonishing X-Men…
