Who had this to say

"Marvel shipped their tentpole book, the latest issue of their big event of 2017… and it came in ninth place in our store, outselling Aquaman by three copies and Cyborg by five copies. No other Marvel showed any significant sales activity. Readers continue to drop Marvel titles every week, complaining about both the stories and the art (and often, about the disconnect between the two). Strong interest in 1970s and 1980s Batman books."

"Rick Remender and another book about unresolved parental issues has taken the top spot from DC Comics and Marvel. This time it did huge by adding Opena to the art for Seven to Eternity…good job, thanks for paying my electric bill for the month.Batman and Trinity rounded out the top three."

"Wolverine and X-Men back-issues sold really well which is of course not the thing Marvel wants to hear…since i think the Death of X will actually do well People seem to want what they do not want to sell…Mutants."

"Marvel finally got a book on the top ten with the newest issue of Civil War II however could not take the top spot from DC (The first Rebirth crossover event only made Batman hotter, go figure). Image had twice as many comics on this weeks top ten than Marvel with Seven to Eternity and I Hate Fairyland being huge hits!! DC is still the juggernaut with 7 comics on the top ten.. it looks like nothing can slow them down!!"

"Weird week. Civil War II 5 sold out on Wednesday. Civil War II 4 we have a lot of copies left over. I simply subtracted the unsold copies from what was ordered of the last issue and somehow issue 5 is even more popular? The joys of ordering comics. Though to sell out is better than to have too many left over. Plus Marvel did have the issue available for reorder. Mighty Thor sneaks in the top ten the rest go to DC. Rebirth has been great. Marvel’s upcoming re numbering with Marvel Now and their various announced series is currently looking like it will be Marvel’s version of DC You. People so far are not excited for their upcoming projects. Though like with Rebirth all that may change quickly."

>3. Civil War II #5
Anti Marvel people, anti Bendis people, anti CW people BTFO.

"Our top books this week were Batman, JL, Nightwing (thanks to the Monster Men Batman crossover), Trinity 1, and Superman before Civil War took 6th place. Not sure if people are just giving up or just not racing in to grab CW right away, but by the first few days of sales, we’d sold a lot more CW 3 and 4 than we have of 5 in the same time period, so I hope it’s a gradual seller. I’m scared it might be the fact that people are getting used to paying $2.99 for comics again with Rebirth where they’re getting more selective about which $4.99 books they’re picking up. We also sold a solid amount of Injustice, Invader Zim, Haunted Mansion HC and Seven to Eternity 1. Over the first few days of the week, I’ve sold over twice as many Batman, JL & Nightwing as I have Civil War 5 so far. CW 5 had a cool twist, but I don’t know if it can really help turn the sales around on this one."

"Some Rebirth books like All Star Batman 2 and Flash 6 almost made my top ten bestselling list again this week, even though they were last week’s comics, both selling almost as many copies on the first few days of week 2 than they did in week 1."

"Lots of Batman back issues are moving lately, everything from War Games to Hush to New 52. Not a ton of key issues, but just lots of low priced solid issues. Moving lots of Uncanny X-Men, Justice League, Saga and Walking Dead as well. Not sure where all these new collectors are coming from, but we’re just happy they’re finding our store."

"Plenty of popular books with Civil War II finally coming out, Batman, Trinity, Amazing Spider-Man. Good turn out, but lower than expected $$ amounts."

"Back issues continue to sell briskly – biggest problem is finding the time to process/price/file the stuff and keep the inventory stocked for customers."

"Titles that are no longer getting their own books (see Fantastic Four) – just languish in the back issue bins with little to no interest from fans. We have to constantly question which books to tie up value floor space with (Anyone looking for ‘Mazing Man anymore? not so much.)"

"I stopped submitting our store’s list for a while. There was little to no discussion about the posts and seemed to always echo, “not enough stores reporting to have any meaning.” As soon as I stopped, discussion started so I’m back.
Very strong sales this week, one of our best in a month or so."

"Batman easily takes the #1 spot, though it did routinely before Rebirth as well. DC has 5 of our top ten. Harley Quinn continues to not sell very well for us. Nightwing was our #6 seller of the week doubling sales of HQ."

"Not all doom and gloom for Marvel here. Civil War II sold well again despite the many and varied complaints. Amazing Spider-Man was still a great seller though has been slipping further down the list with each of the last few issues. Mighty Thor continues to do well."

"Biggest surprise of the week was Seven to Eternity. We over ordered and still managed to sell out on Wednesday with calls and walk ins looking for it through the week."

"Seeing more and more people looking for 70’s Marvel like Ghost Rider and Luke Cage. Can you believe it?"

>Harley Quinn continues to not sell very well for us
Her popularity dying already?

That's just one store.

The major event of the year taking the 3rd place is a success now for Marvel? How low they have fallen.

>Mighty Thor continues to do well
Cred Forums on suicide watch

BTFO my ass drone. Enjoy your third place and your shit taste.

Actually the real question is which was a better comic, Justice League #5 or Civil War II #5?

Last I heard it was at 40k. One store selling well does not a success make.

>CW: Part Deux num5
>Third place
>After Batman and Pals fight Kaijus and the most mediocre JL to date.

Rebirth contnues to kick ass!!!

7 to 10 on top ten!

In the meantime Marvel instead of trying to improve are making a party, because of the 3rd place of a really bad event. No hope for something better from them yet.

Justice League #5. I'll take Hitch's mediocre crap over Bendis' hot garbage.

Still both were better from Bendis's crap.

>I’m scared it might be the fact that people are getting used to paying $2.99 for comics again with Rebirth where they’re getting more selective about which $4.99 books they’re picking up.
Good.

Reminder that according to one store from Bleeding Cool, The Flintstones is outselling Civil War II so they don't tell the complete picture.

Nonetheless from this sampling size it's nice to see DC doing so well anyway.

>Breevort/Bendis/Alonso on suicide watch

Which one will slash their wrists first before Ike be gets his hands on them?

>shitty CW and JL are above awesome Trinity, Supes, Nightwing, GA etc.
People buy it just because of name, right?

The major Marvel event outselling 2 individual Rebirt h books is major success?

Marvel drones BTFO yourselves!

I have no fucking idea what the hell happened in this JL arc.

At least you can laugh at Bendis. So it has more entertaining value.

Only people with really low IQ could laugh with Bendis.

It's a joke nigga, just chill

Yes

Yes, unfortunately.

Unfortunately, CWII. At least CWII #5 had good art. JL #5 didn't even have that going for it.

>CW2 beaten by a filler cross-over event and a really bad JL arc
>Spider-Man barely in top 10

It's over, Marvel is finished.

>A simple crossover kicked the ass of a company wide event.

It stabilized around ~47k region. Which still makes it one of Marvel's Top 10 best selling non-Star Wars books.

Ironically enough, the only issues that sold around 40k were the ones where Jane never appears and was actually a flashback arc about Thor Odinson. Sales went back up when the focus went back to Jane, meaning that male Thor HURT sales of the book although it's more likely the fact that Dauterman wasn't on art for that arc.

>marvelfags consider the literal diarrhea that is Civil War II getting in the top ten is a win.

Pathetic.

>shitposter does some blatant and lazy shitposting
>better respond seriously! Lol, take that marvelfags ;^)
Pathetic.

It's tough to be a Marvel fan these days desu. :^)

Didn't CW #5 had a different artist? because the regular artist sucks ass.

>We also sold a solid amount of Injustice

Great, everyone should have a little fun now and then

>I-I was only pretending to be retarded.

smdh, you should be better than this by now, Mouseketeer.

I imagine Civil War 2 is selling a bit better now because now the actual fight happened this issue (5 issues into the event Jesus fucking christ, Bendis). Although the fight has already just ended too. Amazing.

Enjoy your black loli Iron Man, bitch! :^)

It's a Bat crossover. It's practically a company wide event.

>>Spider-Man barely in top 10
This is the saddest part along with no one buying anything F4 related anymore since Marvel killed them because they can't make movies of them.

Why wouldn't you get nightwing at the same time as getting batman, they're part of the same story. The only thing I can think of are casuals who buy batman because it's batman, and not for the actual story

I figure that's the only reason Trinity even sold a lot. Because it has Batman in it.

>The crossover only affects Nightwing, Batman and Detective comics

Sure it is buddy

Happily married Kents having a day at the fare beats the return of Superior Ock

Joy.

Is that sarcasm? Because the superman issue was great. And spOck is shit

Francis Manapul is fairly popular too

What is the point of these threads other then to incite more console war-style faggotry?

Rich shilling his site.

This.
I got it for manapul.

You mean you're the one who's trying to incite more console wars.

To let us know what's selling. If you take sides in the first place you should probably slit your wrists

>The only thing I can think of are casuals who buy batman because it's batman, and not for the actual story
And you have just realized this now?

Yeah, outside of the living Ock's living brain body exploding not much really happened. It really dragged on too. Felt like a filler issue for Clone Comspiracy (which it was).

The Superman issue was cute. With really good art and humor.

Batman is the entire company line

that IS the point
