Infinity War, Batman's wedding, Sonic box set see reorder action in last week of May

by John Jackson Miller
The last full week of May reorders resulted in yet another Infinity War-led reorder chart from Diamond Comic Distributors — and Sonic the Hedgehog made an appearance in the advance reorders, with a boxed set due out in June. 
First we'll look first at how the books already in stores fared, and move on to the future:

TOP REORDERED ITEMS for May 21-27, 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.

In yet another repeat, Marvel Infinity War-related items took the top three slots, with the Infinity Gauntlet trade paperback, the Infinity War trade paperback, and the Infinity trade paperback topping the charts.

The top reordered comic book was the weekly Justice League: No Justice #2 from DC. It went on sale on May 16. The top Marvel reordered comic was Avengers #2, which also went on sale May 16. It's on a second printing now.

The top hardcover was Ultimate Comics Avengers: Blade Vs. Avengers. It came out on April 13, 2011, making its appearance here possibly the result of a sale.

And, after many weeks, Action Comics #1000 finally left the list. (See listings for them on eBay.)

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

And now on to the future...

for May 21-27, 2018 (in full retail dollars)

Find this comic on 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.

Batman's wedding continued to draw attention as the Artgerm variant edition of Batman #49 was the top advance-reordered comic. It goes on sale June 20.

No softcovers or hardcovers, but IDW did offer a Sonic the Hedgehog Box Set that made the charts. It includes issues #1-4 of the series, and is also due on June 20.

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