Thanos, Green Lantern Earth One, Spider-Man #798 top reorders as March winds down

by John Jackson Miller

Find this issue on TFAW
In advance of the March sales charts, the final reorders and advance reorders placed with Diamond Comic Distributors during the month were released today. Let's look first at how the books already in stores fared, and move on to the future:

TOP REORDERED ITEMS for Mar. 26-Apr. 1, 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.

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

As noted last week, the $500 Marvel Infinity Gauntlet Box Hardcover Slipcase Set was reported as out of stock at Diamond, ending its reign over these charts — but the Infinity Gauntlet trade paperback was once again the top reordered softcover, as well as being the top reordered item by dollars overall.

The top hardcover was the second-place one from last week, DC's Green Lantern Earth One Vol. 1. It was released March 14.

The top reordered comic book is one we've seen before in the advance reorder charts: Amazing Spider-Man #798, which went on sale today. This is the first time since we began running these charts last fall that the top reordered comic book was shipping the same week the reorder chart was released.

The Artgerm variant of Mighty Thor #705 was the top reordered March comic book; it went on sale March 21. That's another one we saw in the advance reorder charts. Previously Image's Oblivion Song #1 had topped March-shipping reordered for three weeks; it still made the chart.

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

And now on to the future...

 for Mar. 26-Apr. 1, 2018 (in full retail dollars)

 Find this book at TFAWThese 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.

Seventeen slots for Marvel in the Top 25 this week. The top comic book in advance reorders was was the Deodato variant of Marvel's Thanos Annual #1, which goes on sale April 25. It's seen at the top of this post. The regular edition placed fifth.

The 88-page J. Scott Campbell Danger Girl 20th Anniversary Edition from IDW probably qualifies as a trade paperback; if so, it was the top advance-reordered one. It goes on sale April 25. No hardcovers this time out in the chart.

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