Several weeks ago, retailers began placing advance reorders for items whose initial order deadlines had passed, but which had not yet released at the time the reorders were placed. These reorders, placed further out than regular reorders, tend to be more speculative in nature, as there is less certainty that stock will still be available. But they do give us the farthest-into-the-future look at potential sales. To see potential sales for this month, you generally want to look at the advance reorders placed from the month before.

Note that the listings mix hardcovers, softcovers, and comics together, and that they also rank items by dollars rather than units. Note, too, that advance reorder charts are ranked by retail dollars, so retailers' discounts have not yet been applied. There is no guarantee that these advance reorders will be filled. It's also likely that a lot of books in these lists won't synch up exactly with this month; reorders are placed all the time and reported weekly, while comics sales are reported monthly.

Something new in the listing for the top advance-reordered graphic novel: Diamond listed the publisher of the November releasing Ultimate Spider-Man Omnibus as "Marvel PRH," which suggests that for their record-keeping they'll be classing material that comes from Penguin Random House separately from their current Marvel-direct material.

What are your comics worth?

Reorders, by contrast, are orders for items that had already been released at the time of the order. In other words, these are the comics customers have been asking for, generally speaking; while deep discounts July also put titles on these lists, the charts are ranked by invoiced dollars, which is what retailers actually paid.
