The Power of Stanley Artgerm Lau and Dennis Chew on Advance Reorders

The Power of Stanley Artgerm Lau and Dennis Chew on Advance Reorders

Posted by February 7, 2019 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.

Die Die Die #8 tops the advance reorder charts – but only because it’s the only way retailers can order that comic book. Following that are the variant covers of Batgirl #32 by Derrick chew and Wonder Woman #65 by Stanle Artgerm Lau, both ahead of Detective Comics #999. Also of note, however, is the upticking for the DC young adult graphic novel Under The Moon, which will be promoted by DC’s the Free Comic Book Day title revealed last week. Which has given retailers a little more confidence to up those numbers.
