Amazing Spider-Man #800, Walking Dead anniversary box set lead reorder charts

by John Jackson Miller

We expect the May sales charts to be along this weekend, but in the meantime, last week's reorder charts are out from Diamond Comic Distributors. Amazing Spider-Man #800 continued to lead one, while the Walking Dead 15th anniversary box set led the other. First, we'll look at what's already in stores before moving on to the future:

TOP REORDERED ITEMS for June 4-10, 2018 (in invoiced dollars)

 Find this issue 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.

Last week's top reordered book, Amazing Spider-Man #800, topped the list once again. (See listings for the issue on eBay.)

The top hardcover was Batman: Knightfall Omnibus Vol. 3: Knightsend.

The Infinity Gauntlet collection was yet again the top trade paperback.

The top reordered comic book from DC was Batman: Prelude to the Wedding: Robin Vs. Ras Al Ghul #1. It went on sale on May 30. DC also had the top reordered comic book released in June, Justice League #1.

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

And now on to the future...

for June 4-10, 2018 (in full retail dollars)

These are items that have not yet shipped, but for which the Final Order Deadlines have passed.

Find this item at TFAW
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.

The Walking Dead Compendium 15th Anniversary Box Set was the top advance-reordered item by dollars. Priced at $200, it goes on sale October 3.

The Jim Lee variant of Batman #50 was the top advance-reordered comic book, with the regular edition right behind. It goes on sale July 4 as part of the midnight-release promotion many shops are participating in.

The Fresh Start relaunch Amazing Spider-Man #1 was the top advance reordered comic book from Marvel. The 56-page issue has a discount program keyed to retailer's orders of Amazing Spider-Man #796. Marvel also had a lot of Captain America #1 variants in the chart.

No trade paperbacks made the list.

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