DC’s July comics announcements; The coming of Grayson and what’s coming in September


Here’s the DCU and New 52 solicits for July — and as a BONUS becuase of the lead time needed for the lenticular covers, the September Future’s End solicits, with NO CREATIVE TEAMS ATTACHED, probably because ANYTHING could happen between now and then.

Marvel Month-to-Month Sales: March 2014 — the two types of All-New Marvel Now #1s


Now before we get deep into the numbers, I want to point out a trend that I’ve been noticing, and would love to hear your thoughts on in the comments below.

The first is something like Black Widow or She-Hulk, where the new #1 is a new series featuring a new or returning character and a new creative team, so basically a new book. The other is what I call the soft relaunch. They take an ongoing series with falling sales and they give it a new #1, but not much else changes, same creative team or if maybe the artists changes, the writer stays, and maybe a slight tweak on the storyline or premise. Examples of this are Secret Avengers or X-Factor.
