Johnny the Homicidal Maniac Beats Out The Walking Dead

I normally don’t pay too much attention to reorder numbers. It isn’t that they are not important (they are). It just isn’t something that I get too excited about. But every now and again something catches my eye and makes me do a double take.

Diamond’s top-selling reorder and advance reorder products for the week of 10/08/2012-10/15/2012 had something completely unexpected: The book holding the #4 spot (based on the invoiced value of products that have already shipped) was Johnny the Homicidal Maniac.

Granted, the bok was $45, but how often are you going to see ANY list where a “cult favorite” like Johnny the Homicidal Maniac beats out The Walking Dead, Sandman, and Game of Thrones?
