“You can count the comic book editors on one hand who are so influential to the medium and whose vision for their material is so strong that they really define a brand that gives the audience that kind of confidence. And one of them is here to my left, Karen Berger.”
Not a whole lot of difference between the Big Two in the larger picture, but Marvel had a better month compared to the last few.
You will not see Doomsday Clock and Metal on the same chart again.
Can one day of a $0.99 sale still make a book chart? Yes, it can.
You knew Google Play had heavy discounts, too, right?
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.
OF COURSE, Doomsday Clock was the bestseller of the week. But things got shook up further down the chart.
