I know that, "Thundercats," has a solid fanbase, but I didn't expect it to have as many copies preordered as it seems it has. Now, the publisher, Dynamite, is known for making tons of variant covers and ratio covers. That means some of the sales could be shops going heavy to get those limited covers. Still, over 170,000 copies of, "Thundercats," #1 are ordered by stores now. In the comic-book industry in 2024 that is quite a lot. Retro stuff is new and hot again, from IDW keeping the license for, "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles," and apparently planning to relaunch it to Image/Skybound with that new Energon Universe containing G.I. Joe and Transformers.
Declan Shalvey and Drew Moss are working on the new, "Thundercats," and that is a solid team, so I hope the book is as good as the sales seem to indicate people are hoping it shall be. With the comic-book industry having a lot of highs and lows lately I'm always pleased to see a title doing well. A rising tide raises all boats as they say.
