Captain Marvel Tops Advance Reorders, Thanks to Stanley “Artgerm” Lau

Posted by June 29, 2018 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 power of Stanley “Artgerm” Lau has become clear on the charts in recent months. The whiff of a variant cover from him will bump orders up significantly — especially if it’s depicting a woman character. I am expecting next week’s chart to have the Invisible Woman Artgerm variant cover topping the advance reorders, ahead of his other three. Even if the character on the cover now looks 20 or 30 years younger than Reed Richards.

But here, he is giving a real boost to the first issue of The Life of Captain Marvel, with significant reorder activity for Justice League, Doomsday Clock, Immortal Hulk, and Rafael Grampa‘s cover for The Magic Order.
