Marvel Month-to-Month Sales Charts October 2016: N.O.W. (NOT OPTIMISTIC WHATSOEVER) MONTH

5

by Xavier Lancel

Welcome to a new analysis of the Marvel sales. Reminder: I’m French, that’s why I’m talking funny. Please address your complaints to my “sorry, no foie gras for Christmas” country.

If last month was very quiet for Marvel, this one is literally bursting with new titles, events and…falls! A lot of Marvel titles are taking a beating, be there on the top list or not, and most of the new launches are very weak, if not close to disaster. Giving their ongoing titles to Solo, Slapstick and Foolkiller, when, putted together, they can’t even sell decently a Deadpool derived title, that was quite optimistic!
Launching 6 new ongoing titles at the same time, when most of them never ever supported one before, was pretty risky. Some of them could take the exit door before even their weakest counterpart from the first wave of Marvel Now will stop.

And there are still quite a lot of others ongoing, based on secondary or their characters waiting in the corner (The Wasp, Foolkiller, Gamora), not counting the thrice or more relaunched Rocket Raccoon, Star Lord or Nova.

To make it short: this was not a good month for Marvel’s Now! line of titles.

Reminder: those sales are estimates, sales to comics shops situated in North America. American comics do get sold somewhere else in their original floppy edition. Keep also in mind that it’s not because a copy is sold to a shop that it’s sold to a customer. This would be way too easy. Digital sales are not taken into account.

Many thanks to Milton Griepp and ICv2.com for the permission to use their figures. Also thanks to the Comics Zone shop in Lyon (my city in France!) for its help.


2-CHAMPIONS ($5)

10/16  Champions  #1  -    328,165   

The hard-won Champions trademark was waiting to be used again after an X-Force-Champions Annual in the late 90’s. Remember that Marvel fought over it in the 80’s -there was a super-hero role playing game of the same name. The sollicitation text doesn’t tell if it is still a west coast Los Angeles based team, like its first iteration was. Obviously, Loot Crate numbers -or the equivalent- are included in those numbers. We will have to wait next month to have a glimpse of the real audience of this title.

3-DR STRANGE SORCERERS SUPREME

10/16  Dr Strange Sorcerers Supreme  #1  -    149,710   

That’s almost the same debut numbers than Dr Strange’s. That’s impressive. This one should quickly be at least a little below its “parent” title. Still, that’s the proof that the Dr. Strange is one of the new hottest properties at Marvel. The higher ups are probably already thinking of adding a third title to his family of titles.

7- CIVIL WAR 2 LTD ($5)

05/16  Civil War II #0 -  189,829                    
06/16  Civil War II #1 -  391,526  (+106.3%)
06/16  Civil War II #2 -  148,403  (-  62.1%)              
07/16  Civil War II #3 -  185,949  (+  25.3%)
07/16  Civil War II #4 -  126,865  (-   31.8%)
08/16 ---
09/16  Civil War II #5 -  120,208  (-    5.2%)
10/16  Civil War II #6 -  118,625  (-    1.3%)

Stability, so people are probably happy with it.

 

8- DARTH VADER

02/15 Darth Vader #1 -  304,373

DARTH VADER TP VOL.2:  14,680     [+374]
Average +% TPB Sales issues #7-12: +15.6%
DARTH VADER TPB VOL.3: 7,527  [+429]
Average +% TPB Sales issues #13-18 : +9.3%

I’m still betting on a relaunch. It’s almost the top selling Star Wars title. All 3 tpbs are again in the top300 this month.

11- CLONE CONSPIRACY LTD ($5)

10/16  Clone Cnospiracy Ltd  #1  -  90,285

The Jackal is back. Does that means another Clone Saga again? One thing for sure, Clone is a magic sales word whenever Spider-Man is concerned, so long as it’s not overused.

15- 63- DEADPOOL BACK IN BLACK LTD

10/16  Deadpool Back in Black Ltd  #1  -   78,653 
10/16  Deadpool Back in Black Ltd  #2  -   44,047  (-44.0%)

Always the same pattern with those Deadpool minis.

 

16- 252- STAR WARS

STAR WARS TOP VOL.3: 6,689  
Average +% TPB Sales issues #13-19 : +6.1%

For the first time under 80K. That’s still double what a standard successful MU title is selling. On the TPB side, all is quiet this month.

18- 40- DEATH OF X LTD

10/16  Death of X Ltd  #1  -    75,825  
10/16  Death of X Ltd  #2  -    59,427 (-21.6%)

First issue was $5. Another convoluted character is biting the dust. Be prepared to have him returned, cleansed of all his sins, in 3 years or so. His identity? It’s in the title. Very good sales, obviously.

22- JESSICA JONES

10/16  Jessica Jones  #1  -    74,291  

Brian Bendis and Michael Gaydos are reunited. It’s nice to see Michael Gaydos back on a high profile book, after a stunt on Archie’s Black Hood first arc. Even if the title loose half of its buyer next month, that will make a quite decent base of readers to work upon.But tons of variants here, so beware!

23- INFAMOUS IRON MAN

03/16  International Iron Man  #1  -  70,824
04/16  International Iron Man  #2  -   40,459  (-42.9%)
05/16  International Iron Man  #3  -   35,282  (-12.8%)     
06/16  International Iron Man  #4  -   28,998  (-17.8%)
07/16  International iron Man  #5  -   27,697  (-  4.5%)
08/16  International Iron Man  #6  -   28,337  (+ 2.3%)
09/16  International Iron Man  #7  -   25,496  (-10.0%)  (CV2)

10/16  Infamous Iron Man  #1 -  73,735

Since issue #2: -37.0%

For anyone who would dare pretend International hasn’t been cancelled: you can still see on Amazon that the International Vol.2 HC, who was supposed to be released on April 25th 2017 has been cancelled. International was first supposed to go on longer than only 7 issues, of course. The rebrand and the change of person under the helmet doesn’t seem to have changed a thing. The title is ready to follow the same surprisingly disappointing -considering its top creative team- sales than its predecessor.

24- 29-AMAZING SPIDER-MAN ($5)

04/14  Amazing v3 #1  - 532,586  ( 293.1%)

10/16 Amazing Spider-Man#19 -   73,215   (+ 2.9%)
10/16 Amazing Spider-Man#20 -   67,530   (-  7.8%)  (CC)

Since #2: -39.3%

Issue #19 was $5 and featured the death of a character, hence the little bump. Lots of death those days. Issue #20 is a Clone Conspiracy tie-in, which doesn’t seem to have any effect at all.

25- 68-DOCTOR STRANGE 

10/15 Doctor Strange  #1 – 145,456  
11/15 Doctor Strange  #2  -   65,091   (-55.3%)  
12/15 Doctor Strange  #3  -   57,135   (-12.2%)
01/16 Doctor Strange  #4  -   52,388   (-  8.3%)
02/16 Doctor Strange  #5  -   43,796   (-16.4%)
03/16 Doctor Strange  #6  -   52,440  (+19.7%)
04/16 Doctor Strange  #7  -   49,590  (-   5.6%)
05/16 Doctor Strange  #8  -   49,427  (-   0.3%)
06/16 Doctor Strange  #9  -   46,306  (-  6.3%)
07/16 ---
08/16 Doctor Strange #10 -   50,083  (+  8.2%)
09/16 Doctor Strange #11 -   53,718  (+  7.3%)
10/16 Doctor Strange #12 -   72,990  (+35.9%)
10/16 Doctor Strange #13 -   41,290  (-43.4%)


Since issue #2 : -36.6%  

Issue#12 is the start of a new arc, supported by variants and probably over-ordered because of the movie release. Issue#13 numbers are probably better than shown, if shipped late in the month.

36- STAR WARS HAN SOLO

06/16 SW Han Solo  #1  -  152,596   
07/16 SW Han Solo  #2  -    83,738    (-45.1%) 
08/16 SW Han Solo  #3  -    67,816    (-19.0%)
09/16 ---
10/16 SW Han Solo  #4  -    63,030    (-  7.0%)

Since issue#2 : -19.0%

Even Han Solo can’t compete with Darth Vader. Still, great sales, especially if the title manages to stay above 50K.

38-BLACK PANTHER

04/16-  Black Panther  #1  -  286,755                         
05/16	Black Panther   #2  -  102,366                
06/16   Black Panther   #3  -    75,037  (-26.7%)
07/16   Black Panther   #4  -    72,302  (-  3.6%)
08/16   Black Panther   #5  -    83,756 (+15.8%)
09/16   Black Panther   #6  -    58,746 (- 29.9%)
10/16   Black Panther   #7  -    60,857 (+  3.6%)

Since issue #2: -40.5%

Start of a new arc and return of the ill-fated Crew team. Its nice to see Marvel having an equivalent of the Milestone DC corner universe in its mist without branding it, especially since Milestone return to DC never really started or worked out.

46-SPIDER-MAN DEADPOOL

01/16  Spider-Man Deadpool  #1  -  180,891

Since issue#2 : - 44.2%

Issue#21 is the start of a new arc, supported by many variants. The days when the floppy was selling more than 50K per month seem to be quite over. Issue #21 has one variant.

51- CAPTAIN AMERICA STEVE ROGERS

05/16  Cap America SR #1  -140,222

On the other hand, this one is following the same pattern than the late Kanan ongoing.

One of the few big sellers from Marvel not taking a sudden beating this month.

61- MOSAIC ($5)

10/16  Mosaic  #1  -    44,354  

For a completely unknown character with a $5 price tag, that’s not bad, especially since its better than Solo, Prowler or Great Lake Avengers debut sales. But there is indeed quite a pack of variant covers involved so let’s wait to see if this hierarchy is still the same next month.

62- CAGE

10/16  Cage #1  -    44,178  

Better late than never! With a TV show on, this makes sense to release this long awaited series -which was sleeping in the Marvel vaults- now. Sales will probably be way better than what they would have been when the art was finished.

64- INVINCIBLE IRON MAN

Iron Man has never been an easy character to sell. This incarnation with its creative team is one of the most sucessfull.

A severe blow, courtesy of Mjolnir, which this issue is focused on.

71- GREAT LAKE AVENGERS

10/16  Great Lake Avengers #1  -    40,300  

A weak debut for what seems like another Marvel comical comics (how many of those can the market support?). Moey for those ones is often in the TPB format so we’ll have to wait to see if it will indeed attract part of this new audience. Meanwhile, we can marvel at Hercules’ hairy legs on one of the variant covers.

74- STAR WARS FORCE AWAKENS ADAPTATION LTD 

06/16 SW Force Awakens  #1  -  79,626

10/16 SW Force Awakens  #5  -  39,329  (+  3.3%)

Welcome to weirdness. No variant at all, which makes it even stranger. This adaptation has now cost you double the theather movie ticket.

104- DR STRANGE MYSTIC APPRENTICE 

10/16  Dr strange Mystic Apprentice  #1  -    31,185

A new Doctor Strange story, packed with some goold old Ditko reprints. Somebody was probably asleep during the price tag of this one, as it’s only $4, instead of the usual $5 or $6 from Marvel

105- SOLO

10/16  Solo #1  -    30,589

OMG, that’s 10K below Great Lake Avengers or Prowler debut numbers! Those are horrible debut numbers. The mention of Gerry Dugan’s name (scripter of Deadpool) hasn’t bring any extra orders, which suprises me a little. It’s gonna be a real challenge for this one to make it past issue #5.

Losing 5% of its readership 4 months in a row isn’t very healthy.

138- ENCHANTED TIKI ROOM LTD

10/16  Enchanted Tiki Room #1  -    18,296

Why bother with an X-Men 90’s nostalgia book when the market is already full of 90’s tricks? (variants, never-ending crossovers, over-exploitation of good selling characters…)

PATSY WALKER VOL.1: 1,901
Average +% TPB Sales issues #1-5: +11.5%

Start of a new arc, supported by one variant. If the first TPB sold OK on its first month, it hasn’t make any come back in the TPB top 300 so far. Not a good sign for the title, but Marvel is perhaps looking at it from a “Marvel adventures kid line” angle. And from it, it’s still two times better than what this kind of title was performing before Marvel included them in its MU line.

On the other hand, this one, if performing rather poorly in single issues, has been a very strong TPB seller since June, making it every month in the TOP300 so far. That’s scarce.

Thanks for reading until the end! I hope to see you next time. Meanwhile, feel free to comment, express your rage or your love for french sarcasm! I’ll hug everyone, no matter what.

  1. “That’s almost the same debut numbers than Dr Strange’s. That’s impressive. This one should quickly be at least a little below its “parent” title. Still, that’s the proof that the Dr. Strange is one of the new hottest properties at Marvel. The higher ups are probably already thinking of adding a third title to his family of titles.”

    It might not just be that, a variant was included in the Marvel Collector Corps box (which is Funko’s version of LootCrate but with just Marvel stuff; they also have one for DC and Star Wars as well).

  2. Thanks for the comparison between Mystique and Power Girl. Got a chuckle out of that. I literally laughed out loud at the Mockingbird comment.
