    I'll give it a try when the budget allows it. I'll be getting a good salary this month, so maybe then. I was pretty skeptical of All-New X-Men, but wound up loving it, so maybe UA is worth at least a shot. And it's nice to talk some comics. Yeah, I've reread New X-Men quite a few times now, and it's always a great experience.

    Only 112,546? Ha! Marvel will be recanting this ridiculous Spock abomination in no time at all!

    Slott and Wacker probably don't even have the money to butter their Pop Tarts now!

    Those #'s for Superior, particularly for Issue #2, are very impressive indeed. But I am still scared for Scarlet Spider---25k seems close to what I have heard the cancellation line is----and, honestly, I don't know how that title can be any more awesome than it is right now.

    Unfortunately, 90 percent of all butter deficiency cases in the world are a direct result of poor comic book sales. True story.

    I think that Yost said on Twitter that he's currently planning out issues 23-25 of Scarlet Spider so I'm not really worried about cancellation anytime soon. I don't expect the book to last indefinitely (probably mid to late thirty range would be my guess based off of how the estimates seem to be trending) as most titles not featuring Marvels most popular characters usually don't have super long runs.



    Worst case scenario the book gets cancelled & Kaine/SS probably gets slotted into some team book somewhere which isn't exactly the ideal scenario but at least he'd still be making appearances. Having said all that I'm pretty sure cancellation isn't in the books near future right now.

    There are a few more numbers

    169 Avenging Spider-Man 15.1 10,602
    176 Amazing Spider-Man 700 9,988
    234 Amazing Spider-Man 698 6,195
    264 Amazing Spider-Man 699 5,144
    269 Amazing Spider-Man 699.1 5,099

    It doesn't say but they should be 2nd (or third??) printings, I think Avenging is toasted, the sales line for Venom and Scarlet is probably a bit more forgiving than for a title with "Spider-Man" on the cover, and they've (Venom and SSpider) already stabilized, if anything, they'll probably get relaunched (including Avenging or a 2nd Spock title) in the summer.

    Those are 2nd printings (except for #698, which was a 3rd printing).
    You'd ADD them to the December numbers (Or, in #698's case, to its November & December numbers).

    sales estimates
    I''m being picky here, but whose estimates? I'm familiar with at least three websites that offer their own estimates.

    And how exactly should we, as individual readers really take the sales? I don't really care, I like what I like besides sales. If anything I think it's sad that Daredevil doesn't sell better, definitely the best thing Marvel puts out right now.

    Agreed. Agreed. Agreed.

    If that title goes under...well that'll be ashame. That will be the first title in a long time that i'll actually be real upset to see go. I'm with you Oldschool. How can that title not be doing better? C'mon Spidey fans. Get with it.

    Comichron, although icv2 seems to have the same numbers (they all usually seem to have the same numbers )

    Now some steam is vented, and it's time to do an experiment. Would I miss Spider-Man? I'll let Superior S-M be for a while. And 3,99 two times a month would really free up the budget to try other stuff. Not sure about Avenging yet, it seems to be more stand alone stories, so it could be easier to check out now and then.

    I can't speak for every single person out there who isn't interested in the book but just speaking ancedotally for my LCS I know there are a handful of people who have no interest in the book because it features a clone. Pretty absurd reason to not check out a book that you might potentially like if you actually read the thing but some people just have no love in their hearts for clones of any kind in large part thanks to the 90's.
