FF#1 was the biggest seller, clearing 100K and Marvel continued to dominate in dollar sales. DC did have 7 of the top 10 books sold, a mix of Green Lantern books, Batman books, and Brightest Day which has continued to sell well throughout it's run.
I have promised optimism here and I will hold to that promise.
Despite the overall downward trend of comic sales, and the relative upheaval on the creative side of Supergirl's title, the book's sales remained pretty stable. Supergirl #62 sold 21,786, down just 1% from the prior month. In this market, that has to be looked upon favorably. Of course, I wish that number was much higher, much healthier.
It will be interesting to see what happens when Peaty's run ends and Kelly Sue DeConnick takes over. Will the new writer effect things? Or are the 21K of us currently buying out there here for the long run?
And what about after DeConnick's three issue run? Is a three issue run going to be looked upon as a sign of an uncertain future? I really hope DC hands the reins to a writer long term. I think this turnstile approach to creative teams on the title can't be good. And I do hope that the Brian Wood rumor is true. Would be nice to see what he could do with Supergirl.
