October's Walking Dead 15th anniversary 'blind bags' make first reorder chart appearance

by John Jackson Miller

They don't come out until October, but we saw the first of the Walking Dead 15th Anniversary Blind Bag editions turn up in last week's advance reorder charts from Diamond Comic Distributors. First, we'll look at what's already in stores before moving on to the future:

TOP REORDERED ITEMS for June 18-24, 2018 (in invoiced dollars)

These are items that have already shipped, but have been receiving additional orders from retailers. In most cases below, the items are in stock and so the orders are being filled; occasionally items are back-ordered, so their reorders will enter into the channel once they become available.

DC's new edition of its Infinite Crisis Omnibus was the top reordered hardcover and top reordered item overall in dollars spent by retailers. It went on sale June 13.

Marvel's Fresh Start launch of Thor #1, which previously appeared in the advance reorder charts, was the top-reordered comic book of the week. It also went on sale June 13.

The Infinity Gauntlet collection was yet again the top trade paperback.

The links in the table go to the Diamond information pages for each book.

TOP ADVANCE REORDERED ITEMS 
for June 18-24, 2018 (in full retail dollars)

These are items that have not yet shipped, but for which the Final Order Deadlines have passed.

These reorders, if books are available to fill them, may or may not land in the same shipping month as the books' release weeks, so a book's presence on this chart can mean that an item might make a repeat appearance in Diamond's monthly top-seller charts.

The Artgerm variant of Life of Captain Marvel #1 from Marvel was the top advance-reordered comic book. It goes on sale July 18. Justice League #4 from DC was right behind it — it goes on sale the same day.

And they don't go on sale until Oct. 10, but solicitations were taken for the Walking Dead 15th Anniversary Blind Bag editions — variants of previously released comics shipped in bags to hide their covers. Twelve made the list, led by #1.

Once again this week, no hardcovers or softcovers made the list.

This chart is ranked by full retail dollars and not units, or wholesale dollars.
