Witcher: Video game tie-in that looks like it might sell well to your BPRD and Baltimore readers. American Vampire Second Cycle: This has always been a good seller for a Vertigo book. Match to sales of the previous series, then add a couple for #1. Wonder Woman: That Loki helmet on the cover is going to sell a few copies all by itself. Order a couple of extra copies of this issue to put in front of your God of Mischief fans. Rocky & Bullwinkle: Nostalgia book with probably the perfect team for it. Look at your Peabody & Sherman numbers and add 50% or so. Sovereign: They compare it Game of Thrones, but base your order on your numbers for Rat Queens and Umbral. Undertow: Issue #1 did well for this sort of book. Newly added cover B features art by Coliseum’s own Aaron Conley. All New Ghost Rider: Anyone else notice that Marvel’s alphabet now begins and ends with ‘A’, as in all-new? Oy! Anyways, Speed Racer called and he wants his car back. GR has fans that seems to come out of the woodwork when a new series debuts but he didn’t do much for our Thunderbolt sales so my hopes are stunted on this. The cover will hurt sales and not just a little bit. Going to make the 5% incentive level but that’s about it. AN Invaders is panning out to sell like… well, Invaders. Put Namor on the cover and despite 80 years of history, fans disconnect. Brilliant has now been on FOC more consecutive weeks than it has issues in publication. Fail...

Beasts of Burden Hunter Gathers One Shot: These have sold well in the past. Check your earlier numbers and get them in the radar of your Steve Niles/Hellboy/Baltimore crowd. Nosferatu Wars One Shot: Order for your Steve Niles/Hellboy/Baltimore crowd. The Crow Pestilence: One Crow book is going to sell the same as another. Check your numbers for Crow Curare. Transformers Dark Cybertron Finale: An event that didn’t bring any new readers in. Check your numbers for #1 and knock off a couple. Stray Bullets: This has been a critically acclaimed book in the past, but will that carry-over to today? Take a look at your numbers for Velvet and Thief of Thieves. All New Invaders #1 2nd Print: Did anyone sell out of this? We didn’t. Avengers Undercover: Picking up where Avengers Arena left off. Like the rest of the Marvel Right Now Now Now books, this will get a bump over those numbers. Our Inhumanity Awakening #2 numbers were craptacular so the incentive is an easy one here. Second Prints: Marvel seems to be offering a lot of second prints – 12 of them this week alone. This is either a need, which I don’t see on about 9 or these, or a cash grab as Marvel knows that ANY printing of a book will get them orders for 3000 or so books. Ordering to fill a few gaps though not in any serious numbers. Captain Marvel: No reason to think that this will sell much better than the previous incarnation past #1 but as a #1, it will sell more. Mighty Avengers #4 is the incentive book...
