Comicbook.com has become the go to place for Marvel print runs, with reports that Princess Leia #1 has 200,000 pre-orders and so does Spider-Gwen, which features an alternate universe Gwen Stacy with superpowers. Retailers are said to be excited about the latter:
“We are going to order 100 plus; it’s getting great buzz,” said Jared Aiosa of Elmira, NY’s Heroes Your Mom Threw Out. He cited the creative team, particularly writer Jason LaTour, as a source of excitement, saying, “Fans of Spider-Man are excited, and even those who were NEVER a fan of Spider-Man find Spider-Gwen fresh. It’s a fun almost punk spin on this character.”
Leia’s sales are less than her dad Darth’s #1, which fetched 300,000 pre-sales, and of course Star War #1’s ultra bazillions. So the ladies are still lagging. Wait until Marvel rolls’ out Mon Mothma #1, though, that will dwarf them all.
Secret Reboot or no, it looks like Marvel is having a good year.
