Justice League: No Justice #1 top reordered comic last week; Thor #1 leads advance reorders

by John Jackson Miller
Another week, another Infinity War-led reorder chart from Diamond Comic Distributors. First we'll look first at how the books already in stores fared, and move on to the future:

TOP REORDERED ITEMS for May 14-20, 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.

Just like the week before, 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 Justice League: No Justice #1 from DC. It went on sale on May 9. Action Comics #1000 from April 18 once again made the list, in 10th. (See listings for them on eBay.)

The Action Comics: 80 Years of Superman book was the top hardcover.

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

And now on to the future...

for May 14-20, 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.

A bit more Marvel in the advance reorder chart this week, with the publisher taking 15 slots. Another Marvel Fresh Start launch led the chart: Jason Aaron's Thor #1, which releases June 13. An Amazing Spider-Man #800 second printing came in second.

DC's top comic was Man of Steel #3 and Image's top release was Mark Millar's Magic Order #1, both of which are also out on June 13.

No May-shipping comics on the advance reorder list: It's too late in the month. And as often happens, no graphic novels made the chart at all, hardcover or softcover.

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