201103241227 Chart of the day: Top Diamond reorders for the week

Every once in a while Diamond releases a chart…and every once in a while, The Beat runs it. This is the list of the top-selling reorder and advance reorder products for the week of 3/14/2011-3/20/2011. By itself, it’s nothing but a bunch of factoids, but it does give some idea of “sell-through” and what retailers anticipate will sell — the fact that Daniel Clowes’ 11’year-old DAVID BORING tops it is probably because a new book is coming out (MR. WONDERFUL) or perhaps because it had been out of print and became available. Torsten? Would you care to chime in?

Otherwise…people still like WALKING DEAD and BATMAN!

Comments

  1. The David Boring number is interesting.

    The book was relisted in February’s Previews, and seeing I didn’t have it in stock (no idea why, it just fell through the cracks somewhere), I ordered it.

    It showed up this week processed under an older code (but at full discount) instead of the FEB code.

    So, it’s possible that some retailers were taking advantage of the relist to stock up without paying the reorder penalty, or that some shops pulled it in for the first time (maybe even thinking it’s new). Since it’s not technically new, it showed up on the top reorder list instead of the top new GN list.

    Or something.

  2. Yeah David Boring is on there because that is a new edition after being OOP for a while. Guess that technically qualifies it as a reorder of an existing book.

  3. Yeah, it’s “pent up demand” that’s reflecting.

    Brian, at first I thought this was a comment on the “panty variant” story.

  5. Torsten Adair says:

    Death Ray HC in September (D&Q)
    Mister Wonderful: A Love Story HC in April (Knopf)
    Ice Haven TP in January 2011. (Knopf)

    David Boring:
    Hardcover September 2000
    Trade Paperback September 2002
    Spanish paperback May 2005

    Not a new edition. Relisted in Previews.
    The paperback edition has been in print since 2002.
