Hawkman Found #1 top reordered book third consecutive week; February, March Comichron pages added

by John Jackson Miller

Now that the December and end-of-2017 comics sales charts are online here at Comichron, it's time to turn back to January and beyond.  The second batch of reorder charts for the year are out from Diamond Comic Distributors, featuring some familiar titles. Let's look first at how the books already in stores fared, and move on to the future:

TOP REORDERED ITEMS for Jan. 8-14, 2018 (in dollars)

 Find this book at TFAW
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.

These are ranked by invoiced dollars, so retailers' discounts have already applied to the totals before ranking.

DC's Hawkman Found #1, a "Dark Nights" tie-in that went on sale Dec. 27, was the top reordered comic book for the third consecutive week. The Metal tie-in, by Jeff Lemire, Brian Hitch, and Kevin Nowlan and its variant appear to have sold through their initial allotments at Diamond, which is now taking back-orders.

The Saga Vol. 8 trade paperback, the top graphic novel for December, was the top reordered softcover.

The top reordered hardcover was the George Perez Sirens Direct Market exclusive edition from Boom, which shipped January 10.

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

And now on to the future...

 for Jan. 8-14, 2018 (in dollars)
 Order this issue at TFAW
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.

Topping the list overall for the second time was the Bill Sienkiewicz variant cover for Walking Dead #176, which ships February 7.

The top advance-reordered comic book shipping in March was once again the Oblivion Song by Kirkman and De Felici Collector's Edition from Image. It's expected to go on sale March 7.

The Action Comics #1000: 80 Years of Superman book returned to the top hardcover slot after dropping a position last week. And there weren't any trade paperbacks in the Top 25 at all.

Remember, this is ranked by invoiced dollars and not units.
