Infinity Countdown Primes the Pump for Advance Reorders

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 realisation that Infinity Countdown Prime is basically just a Wolverine book, despite previews that suggested otherwise has seen retailers flock to up their orders, over and above the Action Comics hardcover, which given it’s price point of $29.99 and that these charts usually get totted up over the retail value, is rather impressive.

There’s also considerable excitement over Amazing Spider-Man approaching #800, the Avengers No Surrender series-within-a-series, and the new Doctor Strange Damnation event crowding out even the Matal finale for advance reorders increases…
