First things first: Despite being all-settled and moved in, my internet has been ridiculously jittery for the past week. I’m going to have it looked at. It just means delays in updates. How exciting is that? Ughughughughughugh.
Meanwhile. . .
Over One Million Sold
Way to go DC.
Over one million comics were sold by DC alone in the month of September. This number includes preorders, and second and third printings too. Isn’t that incredible? For the first time since 2006, DC also won in dollar shares. DC was at 35.74% versus Marvel at 35.37%.
Now while that’s a miniscule margin, that is also because most of DC’s titles are at $2.99, meaning volume doesn’t necessarily mean more dollars.
But Batman #1 and Action Comics #1 have both sold over 200,000 issues each thus far, while many comics, like Green Lantern, Flash and Superman have all sold over the 100,000 mark.
For the top 10 comics in the month of September, Marvel held 8th and 9th place, while DC ate up the rest of the slots!
I really hope this momentum keeps up because it would ultimately mean that comics are not a dying breed.
The Avengers Teaser Trailer
Now where are the Skrulls?
This is why I hate teaser trailers.
Keep on Space Truckin’!
