Behind the scenes, I found a couple of interesting sales charts that aren’t usually seen by the public; they come from a newsletter called Diamond Dialog that Diamond Comic Distributors sends out. These reorder numbers are not counted in the initial sales charts where comics are ranked. These charts represent new sales once store owners actually have the book in their shop. They look good!
Re-orders: Normally comic shops have to place their orders on a comic like Shazam! MSoE #1 sight unseen. Sometimes a store may not order enough and find they need to reorder more copies. I never had an issue of Bone place in the top tier of reorders, much less the top 3!
Advanced re-orders: Based on the strong reaction to #1, retailers upped their orders for #2 before it even shipped!
