Battle Angel Alita Manga Selling Out on Amazon

Who says comic book movies don’t help sell comics?

Alita: Battle Angel seems to have more legs than expected at the movie box office. Cyborg legs with roller wheels at the bottom. And Amazon is starting to run out of the Battle Angel Alita comic books published by Kodansha. As it stands, the Battle Angel Alita Deluxe Complete Series Box Set, Amazon’s best-seller in media-tie-in manga is out of stock. And more besides.

  • Battle Angel Alita Mars Chronicle 2 has 16 copies left.
  • Battle Angel Alita Mars Chronicle 4 has 3 copies left.
  • Battle Angel Alita Deluxe Edition 4 has 3 copies left
  • Battle Angel Alita Deluxe Edition 5 has 17 copies left.
  • Battle Angel Alita: Last Order, Vol. 2 – Angel of the Innocents has 1 copy in stock.
  • Battle Angel Alita: Last Order, Vol. 3 – Angel Eternal has 1 copy in stock.
  • Battle Angel Alita: Last Order, Vol. 4 – Angel of Protest has 1 copy in stock.
  • Battle Angel Alita: Last Order, No. 5 has 2 copies in stock
  • Battle Angel Alita: Last Order, No. 6 has 1 copy in stock.
  • Battle Angel Alita: Last Order, Vol. 7 – Guilty Angel has 1 copy in stock.
  • Battle Angel Alita, Vol. 8: Fallen Angel has 1 copy in stock.
  • Battle Angel Alita: Last Order, Vol. 10 has 1 copy in stock.
  • Battle Angel Alita: Last Order 17 is out of stock.
  • Battle Angel Alita: Last Order Omnibus 2 is out of stock

Maybe this is an opportunity for comic book stores that stock the series deeply to step up? Or, if nothing else, put their copies on Amazon MArketplace like Dennis Barger will tell you to do?

It may also be worth knowing that one of the other comics series that, in the past, has been affected by big media, as well as The Walking Dead and Scott Pilgrim, is Hellboy. With a new movie out this year, might retailers be looking to Hellboy Day to stock up in readiness?
