Excalibur, Venom and Basketful Of Heads Top Advance Reorders – and We Haven't Lost the Plot

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.

Excalibur, Venom and Basketful Of Heads Top Advance Reorders - and We Haven't Lost the Plot

The reissued order of the Local Comic Shop Day topped the list as the only way to order this, but for usual retailer top ups, Excalibur leads the way, with Venom and Basketful Of Heads, the new Joe Hill launch of his Hill House horror comics line from DC Comics. And the newly updated Batman Annual does well to – but the biggest surprise is Vault's Plot #2, on the back of the success of Plot #1.
