Harley Quinn, Spider-Man and Domino Top 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.

And it’s Derrick Chew‘s cover for Harley Quinn that tops the orders, as the new Stanley ‘Artgerm’ Lau on the scene. Amazing Spider-Man‘s numbers are upped as retailers realise that the .HU are as much a part of the series as the, um, pointless issues. Domino’s Hotshots gets a bump for launch. And Immortal Hulk is just selling and selling and selling…

And yes, retailers can up all their orders on Second Coming all they want, which would have been the best non-Sandman launch Vertigo has had in years. But it is not to be, the comic has been cancelled before the frst issue is published.
