    I'm interested in it - Gary Frank is a great artist, who seems to fit the Batman stories. And Geoff Johns isn't too bad, either. I really like the idea of these Earth One OGNs, so I'll be getting it.

    I realize that. It's being released in hardcover. But I am going to wait for the inevitable trade paperback edition.

    That reminds me, I don't think Superman Earth One has gotten the trade paperback treatment yet?

    Eh, unless it's really picked up in the months since Brian Hibbs did his review of last year's sales I don't think Superman Earth One did all that well.

    Neither has Joker or Batman: Noel. I hope DC isn't shifting to a new policy of keeping things in hardcover only.

    Oh my apologies. When I think of tpb I automatically think of a collected edition.

    I've been looking forward to this book for a while now. Johns hasn't been my favorite Batman writer, but I haven't disliked what he's done with the character either. I'm interested to see how this story plays out. Plus, I love Frank's art.
    Be careful when speaking. You create the world around you with your words.

    His article had it selling between 35k and 50k. Considering DC moved all of the copies of it's first print run, that isn't bad at all. It didn't do Watchmen numbers, but nothing does.

    To put it in proper perspective, in the direct market it sold about 16k copies it's first month. In March, the top item (Walking Dead volume 1) sold less than 6k. Now, I'm not implying Superman: Earth One has sold more than Walking Dead volume 1, that Walking Dead trade has been in print for years and has easily pushed more than 500k copies in that time and new Walking Dead trades push 20k+ in comic stores alone, but that Superman: Earth One sold better than most new trades and original graphic novels do. Batman: Noel for example only pushed about 13k in it's first month and that was considered a pretty solid success.

    On the contrary, I think it sold very well (if sales is what we're talking about). IIRC, I think they had to do a second print.

    A book by probably my favourite comics writer and one of my absolutely fave artists? Hell yes.

    Give it time. Knowing some posters, I'm sure it'll get there eventually.

    I'm not entirely sure what decent numbers would be for an OGN to be honest, but it was in seventh place for DC's offerings of the year behind: Watchmen,Batman: Year One,V For Vendetta, Dark Knight Returns, Killing Joke and Hush, all of which are pretty old. To me that sounds like a mild success at best especially considering the advertising it got.
