So I brought this up in the other threads about how USM has been dropping sales. Sales came up a lot on the Spider-Man thread after OMD and into the BND world. We talked a lot about if the new direction was successful or not.
Sales figures since the start of the book courtesy of Spike-X
September 2012 - 40, 435
October 2012 - 39, 676
November 2012 - 38,485
These numbers show a gradual drop off. This has me concerned.
I think what concerns me more is the drop off of Ultimate titles across the board. There are a lot of implications and possibilities for this drop off. A big one is that 7 or 8 years ago Marvel was really focusing on this line and people thought it would slowly replace 616. Now Marvel does not seem to be focusing on it like they used too.
The books quality have all dropped since Ultimatum. We could blame Loeb if we wanted, although I've never been one for hating the man that brought us Batman: The Long Halloween and Spider-Man: Blue, but to each their own.
Edit: Crap I meant USM in the titles! Could a Mod please edit? Thanks!
