    I find it interesting that the first AND last YTLM tpbs are in the top 10.

    Nice to see Fables getting some attention!

    I'm surprised none of Marvel's TPBs made the list.

    I say the future is trades once the public catches that the quality of the event crossovers isn't what its cracked up to be, Marvel's sales should start dipping. That could mean bad things for the industry though and DC just continues to lag behind. They'd start copying Marvel badly with the same gimmicks: new female heroes/villiains based on legacy heroes, Who is Mystery Character X?, retconned deal's with the Devil, etc.

    DC could be in a unique position to take advatange but then they'd have to milk more properties through films and I'm not sure what else they'd have other than Sandman or some other Vertigo publication that could really work as a movie.

    i think if marvels sales dropped but the money marvel loses gets distributed among the competition, it would be a very good thing
