    Countdown was doing better than Trinity at this point.

    Secret Invasion is holding steady. Astonishing picked up a few readers from the issue that was released a year ago.


    Oh, and which 53 idiots decided not to read Captain America?

    Still looks bad for DC - the only win they get is reprint of 20 year old material ... its always a bad sign when people show their love by buying your old stuff and not your new. To paraphrase the older Batman.... "This company needs an enema"

    Wow, Ultimate Origins crashed and burned. -40% is an incredibly harsh drop. Invincible Iron man isn't doing very good either. Let's see at which level Uncanny settles after this anniversary spike.

    Positive: Four of my favorite books are very stable: Nova, Ghost Rider, Herc, and GotG. Quality DOES matter to some extent, it seems.

    Good to see Justice Society of America is doing better than OMD spidey.

    Nice to see some somewhat surprising books do so well this month.

    I believe you're exaggerating. "Crashing and burning" would be if it continues to drop badly throughout. If it levels off for issues 3-5 where it is now, that's just fine.

    IIM is doing fine enough, but should definitely be doing better considering how good it is (and because it's a new book).

    This is a very good thing. Especially for Nova and GotG.

    Anyway, nice to see good sales continue for Amazing Spider-Man. Almost every single book above it is part of an event or new creative team. ASM is simply telling self-contained non-hyped, non-event stories.

    Shhhh don't say this about BND Spiderman ! Those numbers are GOOSED !!! ICV2 and CBR are under a vast conspiracy to sink ASM . Those damn bastards.

    Wait, do people actually say that?

    Because the numbers on CBR would have to be BAD for people to say that, and they're not.

    Wow, the Vector crossover for Star Wars must be doing pretty good for Rebellion to pick up an additional 2,000 or so orders from the previous issue.
