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.
So Amazing Spider-Man #682,683 & 684 have all gone to 2nd printings. Congrats to Slott & company.

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.

The Shadow, 2008
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.
