Infinity Countdown Prime #1 leads advance reorders; Doomsday Clock #3 tops comics reorders

by John Jackson Miller

The final full week of reorder and advance reorder charts from January is out from Diamond Comic Distributors. Let's look first at how the books already in stores fared, and move on to the future:

TOP REORDERED ITEMS for Jan. 22-28, 2018 (in dollars)

 Find this issue on 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.

Image's Saga Vol. 8 trade paperback, the top graphic novel for December, was both the top reordered softcover for the third week in a row and also the top reordered item overall by dollars.

The top reordered comic book was DC's Doomsday Clock #3, which went on sale January 24. It had previously led the advance reorder charts.

The top reordered hardcover was DC's Superman: Golden Age Omnibus Vol. 5, which went on sale January 24.

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

And now on to the future...

 for Jan. 15-21, 2018 (in dollars)
 Preorder this book 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.

As with last week, it was another week in which the advance reorder chart was mostly dominated by comic books. Topping the list overall was Marvel's Infinity Countdown Prime #1, a $4.99 issue which is set to go on sale February 21. A Logan variant of the issue was the #2 advance reordered comic; a trading-card variant also made the list.
Dark Nights Metal
was the top advance-reordered March comic book. Gone finally from the list was  Oblivion Song by Kirkman and De Felici Collector's Edition, a recent fixture.

The Action Comics #1000: 80 Years of Superman book repeated in the top hardcover slot; it's been first among hardcovers four out of five weeks. It's an April 11 title.

For the third week in a row, there weren't any trade paperbacks in the Top 25 at all.

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