Anything in the last two months is very specifically excluded from the deep discounts.
We can tell you what’s happening. Why it’s happening may be a little more complicated.
While the lack of transparency has caused some confusion, a lot of the current Marvel discount situation is fairly standard operating procedure for Amazon, so let’s walk through what’s probably going on.
Two large volumes of ’70s Avengers and the latest Peter Parker volume are where this week’s sale starts.
Captain Marvel’s “Ms. Marvel Years” and a Wolverine Epic Collection scored big orders on sale (while Doomsday Clock and Saga both outperformed Metal for the “normal” releases). Sometimes the fifth week of the month is a strange one.
The second week of the sale and the numbers on new release TPBs jumped. Some titles may have sold 8 times as many downloads as there were print copies ordered into the Direct Market.
Titles like The Vision may have sold 9K+ during the 99 cent digital sale and that probably 4x sales multiplier on MOKF? Must read numbers as we start our postmortem on what’s happening.
Amidst the chaos of Amazon/Comixology’s 99¢ sale, Thanos: The Infinity Siblings and X-Men: Grand Design sold a LOT of downloads.
Nantis Universe offers a new digital platform.
The new book releases are still 99¢, so what are you going to do?
