Advance Reorders: Batman Beats Man of Steel, but Only with Artgerm

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.

It’s a good sign for Man of Steel that retailers have decided they like the comic and have been upping their orders on subsequent issues. But it still can’t beat the appeal of a Stanley “Artgerm” Lau Batman cover. There are also boosts for Avengers and Amazing Spider-Man, and Justice League is getting a lot of attention as well.

While over on the trade-heavy reorder list, it’s Infinity War, Gauntlet, and plain Infinity all the way.
