Oh, okay. Here is ONE LINK about WATCHMEN, but it has to do with the comic — PSYCHE. John Jackson Miller looks at the original sales rankings of the miniseries:
Watchmen is one of the most reprinted comics series in history — but where did Watchmen rank at the time it came out? There are challenges in answering that question. First, many competing comics still had heavy newsstand sales and sold subscriptions, whereas Watchmen was a limited series principally targeting the direct market. Second, its sales were spread out across a variety of direct-market distributors that did not report their sales. Only the sales of one of the larger ones, Capital City Distribution, are known to The Comics Chronicles — but those original orders are known exactly from internal records, as is the ranking of each issue at Capital that month, versus other titles.
The numbers will surprise you. Also surprising (although not to faithful readers of this blog), the chart reminds us that only ONE issue of WATCHMEN shipped late. That was the last one and it was all of a month late, a break planned by Moore and Gibbons.
