    Marc-Oliver Frisch does his monthly analysis on DC sales over at The Beat. Note that this is for AUGUST titles, not September:

    41 - WONDER WOMAN
    08/2005: Wonder Woman #220 -- 38,370 [51,212]
    08/2006: Wonder Woman #2 -- 84,618 [87,276]
    08/2007: Wonder Woman #12 -- 50,880
    08/2008: Wonder Woman #23 -- 35,562
    -------------------------------------
    08/2009: Wonder Woman #35 -- 29,657 (- 1.6%)
    09/2009: Wonder Woman #36 -- 28,806 (- 2.9%)
    10/2009: Wonder Woman #37 -- 26,972 (- 6.4%)
    11/2009: Wonder Woman #38 -- 26,265 (- 2.6%)
    12/2009: Wonder Woman #39 -- 26,152 (- 0.4%)
    01/2010: Wonder Woman #40 -- 25,156 (- 3.8%)
    02/2010: Wonder Woman #41 -- 25,354 (+ 0.8%)
    03/2010: Wonder Woman #42 -- 25,240 (- 0.5%)
    04/2010: Wonder Woman #43 -- 25,369 (+ 0.5%)
    05/2010: Wonder Woman #44 -- 25,443 (+ 0.3%)
    06/2010: Wonder Woman #600 -- 53,525 (+110.4%) [63,700]
    07/2010: Wonder Woman #601 -- 39,672 (- 25.9%)
    08/2010: Wonder Woman #602 -- 38,012 (- 4.2%)
    -----------------
    6 months: + 49.9%
    1 year : + 28.2%
    2 years : + 6.9%
    5 years : - 0.9%

    Slowly bottoming out. It doesn’t look like Straczynski’s name is enough to convince people that Wonder Woman is worth their time, though. There was another 1:10 variant.

    Sales numbers for October added in two posts prior to this, and here's a comparative chart:

    09/2009: Wonder Woman #36 -- 28,806 (- 2.9%)
    10/2009: Wonder Woman #37 -- 26,972 (- 6.4%)
    11/2009: Wonder Woman #38 -- 26,265 (- 2.6%)
    12/2009: Wonder Woman #39 -- 26,152 (- 0.4%)
    01/2010: Wonder Woman #40 -- 25,156 (- 3.8%)

    Ouch!

    And that's pre-orders, right? Makes no difference when in the month the book comes out?

    The numbers have been posted, and there are actually newer numbers a couple of posts up already, but here is Marc-Oliver Frisch's analysis and commentary for September, courtesy of The Beat:

    09/2010: Wonder Woman #603 -- 38,852 (+ 2.2%)
    -----------------
    6 months: + 53.9%
    1 year : + 34.9%
    2 years : + 12.3%
    5 years : n.a.

    Encouraging, but moot. Superstar writer J. Michael Straczynski is already leaving for greener pastures, because that series of Superman graphic novels he’s writing surprisingly turned out to consist of more than one. Curveball!

    Good showing for Batwoman.

    Not so good for Spider-Girl and She-Hulks.

    When (he who shall remain nameless) was writing She-Hulk, it was hilarious. It constantly broke the 4th wall, and brought me nearly to tears with how funny it was, issue to issue. Since then ... she's a lost character.

    Spider-Girl. God. Even *I* quit supporting that title, and I think I lasted through 3 or 4 reboots. But a new character altogether? No way. For me, Spider-Girl will always be Mayday Parker.

    Batwoman will do well, I predict. It's got a great creative team. She's got a fantastic costume. And, most importantly, she's got the Batman momentum behind her. I mean, 6 of the Top-12 books this last month were Batman. That can't be ignored.

    I figured Batwoman would do well, but wasn't sure how well. With Rucka leaving, with JHW III still unknown/unproven as a writer, moving it out of Detective Comics, and with the delay, I was afraid it might lose some momentum. Hopefully it keeps going strong (then again, I really want to see JH do some WW stuff, hmm....).

    And She-Hulks and Spider-Girl's new #1 debuting so low? That surprised me. X-23 is doing ok, but it's almost as if Marvel can't sell a female-led comic to save their lives.

    That's weird.

    I see that Supergirl has picked up 2000 new readers in the last couple of months.

    When did Kara start wearing pants?

    These order numbers are fluid, obviously. But if she is getting any more demand, it's probably because this run on her book is ending.

    Heck, even I thought about picking up the final issue, and I haven't read it since #37 or #38!
