    It's bi-monthly. Also, it's not tied into any ongoing storylines and is generally off doing its own thing. And, on top of that, it's a time travel story, which isn't really a popular gimmick for either character.

    I really like the series (Aaron and Kubert are knocking it out of the park), but I'm not shocked it hasn't taken off.

    I think the fact that its bi-monthly is hurting it. And while I think its the best book of the month when it does come out, the fact is...the story may be a little too off-the-wall for most people, especially considering the main players

    Interestingly enough sales of Black Widow had an uptick.

    the bi-monthly stuff definitely turned me off from getting the single issues originally. as did the $ 3.99 price point.

    i like time travel & off the wall stuff, though, so i may still end up getting this series despite the seemingly off-putting sales.

    maybe many readers wait for the tradepaperback. It's in a way ideal for that.

    Only 5 non Marvel or DC books in the top100 and two of them are at 99 and 100?
    Only one book selling more than 100k? And it is another Wolverine title?

    I really should stop looking at this charts. It's just making me angry.

    Time to play "Which Titles Get The Axe Next?"

    We know Hawkeye & Mockingbird are done. Avengers Academy isn't looking too good (is The Heroic Age a failure?).

    Deadpool might be back to just one title a month.

    Why does DC continue to publish Jonah Hex?

    Bye bye Doc Savage (is First Wave a failure?).
