    FINAL October 2011 Sales Reports are in, courtesy of ComicChron. These numbers DO NOT reflect digital sales or reorders:

    13 WONDER WOMAN #2 $2.99 79,060

    for comparison on other female-centric titles:

    14 BATGIRL #2 $2.99 75,227

    15 BATWOMAN #2 $2.99 74,392

    29 CATWOMAN #2 $2.99 57,216

    33 SUPERGIRL #2 $2.99 55,249

    43 BIRDS OF PREY #2 $2.99 47,840

    64 BUFFY TVS S9 #3 $2.99 36,448

    66 HUNTRESS #1 $2.99 36,099

    80 VOODOO #2 $2.99 31,221

    PLUS
    Reorders/2nd Prints on Wonder Woman #1

    117 WONDER WOMAN #1 $2.99 19,688

    Meaning total DIAMOND Print orders for Wonder Woman #1 are 95,902

    This means that technically, FIRST PRINT ORDERS for Wonder Woman #2 were higher than first print orders for #1 by 2,846 copies (or 4%)

    COMBINED First/Second print orders for #1 exceeded sales of first print orders for #2 by 16,842

    Which means that even if issue #2 got tremendous reorders, it probably would not have TOTAL sales equaling all prints of issue #1. But it IS significant growth for the title, AND notable that despite trends through the history of comicdom, issue #2's initial orders were higher.


    ---------------------------

    Nitpick: Not all reorders are from the 2nd print, DC usually overprints to fill reorders without having to go back to print. Which is why sometimes books chart again the following month without actually getting a 2nd printing.
    My blog.

    We struggled against apartheid in South Africa, supported by people the world over, because black people were being blamed and made to suffer for something we could do nothing about; our very skins. It is the same with sexual orientation. It is a given.

    Not sure a nitpick is necessary, but it might clarify things for some people.

    I said "Reorders/2nd Prints" and traditionally a slash "/" means "and/or", which is how I used it, and it thus fulfills the purpose of your explanation.

    But thanks for clarifying further.

    6 months: +138.3%
    1 year : + 96.2%
    2 years : +164.6%
    5 years : n.a.

    "Measured against the pre-publication hype Brian Azzarello and Cliff Chiangís Wonder Woman relaunch received, this number isnít all that impressive ó and certainly not measured against DCís treatment of the character as one of the companyís ďbig threeĒ heroes along with Superman and Batman.

    In the context of estimates recorded since March 2003, for that matter, the new debut is only the fourth-best-selling Wonder Woman book. The top three spots are taken by the first three issues of the 2006 relaunch, which sold between 132,580 and 76,998 units.

    So, clearly, itís still the guys who are wearing the pants at DC."

    What "hype"? I recall people were getting frustrated because even after 2 months of announcing the relaunch we had very little info about Wonder Woman while comics like Justice League and Action Comics used to get all the hype.

    That column is full of factual errors. Note that he mentions a mythical "Loeb/Lee run" on Superman.

    I agree - he tends toward hyperbole, but some of the points he makes are worth reading at least once.

    An interesting point made on this Newsarama article. Wonder Woman #1 and #2 were "returnable," so Diamond's public sales numbers were actually under-reported by possibly as much as 10%...

    "41 of the 52 issues' first printings (noted by asterisks) are "returnable," and Diamond has preemptively under-reported sales of these issues on their charts. Comichron estimates this figure is likely in the 10% range. Subsequent printings of all New 52 issues were not returnable. Meaning while the first printing of Detective Comics #1 was returnable, the second printing was not.
    ...
    And again, it must be noted that Diamond also preemptively underreported sales of the returnable #2 issues."

    M.O. Frisch notes that he re-added those 10% for the purpose of his calculations.

    Not sales figures per say but I feel this is cool/worthy of being noted:

    Wonder Woman Chronicles vol 1 is at 68.87 on Amazon.com compared to Batman Chronicles vol 1 which is at $10.08, Superman Chronicles vol 1 which is at $10.94, Flash Chronicles which is at $14.43, and Green Lantern Chronicles which is at $10.94.

    Comparison and DC Comics Month-to-Month Sales: October 2011 from The Beat:

    "The special discount, which also required retailers to meet a certain quota, applies to Batwoman, Green Lantern: New Guardians, Stormwatch, Swamp Thing, Teen Titans and Wonder Woman, meanwhile. Iíll just mention those here, so keep in mind that these promotional initiatives are likely to have affected the numbers of those books. Whether it affected them more than the thresholds for returnability affected the other 41 titles or less so, we have no way of knowing."

    FINAL November 2011 Sales Reports are in, courtesy of icv2. These numbers DO NOT reflect digital sales or reorders:

    17 WONDER WOMAN #3 $2.99 65,621

    for comparison on other female-centric titles:

    18 BATGIRL #3 $2.99 62,974

    20 BATWOMAN #3 $2.99 61,997

    41 CATWOMAN #3 $2.99 46,976

    43 SUPERGIRL #3 $2.99 45,706

    61 BIRDS OF PREY #3 $2.99 36,802

    64 BUFFY TVS S9 #3 $2.99 33,485

    79 HUNTRESS #2 $2.99 28,377

    98 X-23 #17 $2.99 22,780

    100 X-23 #17 $2.99 22,737

    Which means that issue #3 lost 13,439 copies in orders, dropping significantly for a series that was on the rise. Still the best-selling female-led title, this is a bit of a disappointment for one of the best-reviewed DC New 52 books...

    Some comparisons to earlier issues of Wonder Woman:

    Nov 2011 17 WONDER WOMAN #3 $2.99 65,621 (down 13,439 copies)

    "Thatís not a gigantic drop, but then again, Wonder Woman hasnít set the charts on fire to begin with. 65K is still a good number in the context of the last few years, mind you, but as the long-term comparison shows, it falls more than 10,000 units short of the last Wonder Woman #3, released in November 2006."
