And worth pointing out that it's not derivative in the slightest.
    Very cool----I am motivated to read the entire series ("Venom", not ASM!) over again now!

    Not at all. And it's certainly not "destroying" ASM either.

    Destroying is not the word I'd use. Aquaman's pre orders were a little over 2500 copies more than Amazing Spider-Man. That's with having one of the biggest names in comics (Geoff Johns) on the title. Also with Aquaman being a well written and drawn title. So no idea why you've posted this multiple times...

    Also the last few issues of Amazing Spider-Man have gone onto 2nd prints, and rank high on the re order charts.

    2,3, and 4 were nearly identical in sales according to Diamond. 5 seems to have dropped 3k, but I can only hope it's because people are buying it digitally or something. Scarlet Spider is so good.

    Avenging Spider-Man dropping is not surprising given it's relative meh quality. The only reason I'm still around is because I like Ms. Marvel and she's in two issues (and, of course, the next issue is just an Amazing Spider-Man supplement). After that I'm back on the fence.

    The rest of the titles seem consistent. ~58k seems to be the number for Amazing.

    Here's hoping Scarlet Spider doubles its sales next month. Because it's awesome.

    Scarlet drop was a bit over 2k, or around 6 or 7 per cent, so it is not really time to worry (maybe the lack of a Supervillain had something to do with it)... Avenging fell nearly 20% , guess they could bring down the price to 2.99 - or bring back the ASM 3 x per month...

    I'm not too worried about it but I was just trying to figure out why the book took a drop like that.....Looking at the charts agian I think it's probably because DC had four new # 1's launching to replace four cancelled books & they also had a couple of annuals out that month.

    I can see this title going up and down in sales each month depending on the guest-star and/or creative team. This is really the same issue that Marvel Team-Up had; this sort of title has fewer steady fans and more folks "trying it out" issue-to-issue or arc-to-arc.

    In order to make money by dropping the price of Avenging to three bucks a month, they would have to increase sales by more than a third.

    ASM seems pretty consistent. SS seems to be in line with Winter Soldier, take that for what you will. I wonder how the departure of Stegman will affect things. Avenging has still yet to find a floor.
