Marvel Month-to-Month Sales Charts September 2016: Prediction Malfunction!

11

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 «we are also dommed in 2017 » country.

Very quiet month for Marvel without any new launch, be it an ongoing or a mini-serie, and absolutely no noticeable reorder activity in the top 300. It’s also rather quiet on the variant cover front, whit no titles having more than 5 variant covers.

The Civil War II tag has infected almost every comics published by Marvel this month but, for those who are already in their 3rd or fourth month of being tagged, not only did the effect wear off, but their sales have reach sometimes rather steeply their lowest level ever.

All in all, the CW2 tag, except on the first month he appears on a title, seems to have brought very few readers.

The top 10 Marvel titles presents a nice mix of first class/secondary characters and superhero subgenres. Not only do they have strong sales, but they seem in no danger of a sudden collapse.

So yes, a quiet month, but a month of consolidation for its top titles. For the others, between the ones sinking very very low very very fast and the others, struggling to survive above 20K when they don’t have stellar TPB sales, the situation could prove even worst once CV2 and its tie-in tags disapear. The solution found, so far, has either been the cancellation in silence, the blunt relaunch or the rebranding relaunch (selling the same thing under another name). Take your bets, but remember that the future is sometimes unpredictable!

Before looking at the floppy sales, I propose to you a focus on Ms Marvel TPB sales. I often see in comments people rambling about this serie, not understanding why it’s currently one of the most succesfull Marvel property. This should help.

Reminder: those sales are estimates, sales to comics shops situed 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.


Let’s take a look at Ms. Marvel sales in TPB format. That will make you understand why, even if the series only sold 10K in floppies, it would never ever been cancelled.

The first number is the number of copies sold on the first month of release. The second number is the total of copies sold on the first trimester of release. The last number is so far the total number of copies sold through Diamond for the US, based only on the TOP 300 charts. Remember that when it comes to trade paperbacks, especially with a series like Ms. Marvel which is quite attractive to young and/or female readers, many copies are also sold through other channels.

VOL.1 : 7,795 / 11,479 / 43,492
VOL.2 : 5,400 / 9,250 / 18,698
VOL.3 : 5,506 / 7,996 / 11,282
VOL.4 : 5,519 / 6,642 / 6,642
VOL.5 : 4,236 / 5,203 / 5,203

HC vol.1 : 1,942
HC vol.2 : 2,653
Vol.1 has sold more than 1K almost every month since its release. Vol. 2 after one year of greatness, is selling around 500 copies every two months. Vol. 3 hasn’t showep up again in the top300 after its first 8 months, which doesn’t mean that it’s not selling every month, but probably under 400 copies a month. Vol.4 hasn’t shown up again after its first trimester.

Remember that we are only talking about copies sold to comics shop through Diamond AND that every month, sales of books under 400 copies are not taken into account. It has been two years that every single month, vol.1 of the Ms Marvel paperback is selling at least 1K per month!

The first arc of Ms Marvel has sold MORE in tpb form than in floppies! No other property at Marvel (except perhaps Deadpool, which we’ll look at next month) has been able to do that.

Since issue #2: -18.6%
SPIDERMAN DEADPOOL TOP VOL.1: 7,674  [+881]
Average +% TPB Sales issues #1-5 : +10.5%

Start of a new arc, whithout any variant cover. So far, the top 3 MU ongoing series are, in order : Amazing Spider-Man, Spider-Man/Deadpool then Deadpool. The second month of its first TPB sales confirm the obvious : the Spider-Man/Deadpool collections should sell has much as the Deadpool trades. $$$ Marvel !!

09/16  Deadpool Annual – 51,609

Since issue#2 : - 37.3%

Two issues and an Annual released the same month ! The several variants of issue#18 and its CV2 tag explain such a difference with the next issue. The Annual is selling at the same level than the ongoing, with more than 50K. Marvel could be tempted to release more than one Annual per year for the serie with results like that. And who would notice ?

34-BLACK PANTHER

04/16-  Black Panther  #1  -  286,755                         
05/16	Black Panther   #2  -  102,366

08/16   Black Panther   #5  -    83,756 (+15.8%)
09/16   Black Panther   #6  -    58,746 (- 29.9%)

Since issue #2: -42.6%

Searching violently for its level.

42- 62-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%)

08/16 Doctor Strange #10 -   50,083  (+  8.2%)
09/16 Doctor Strange #11 -   53,718  (+  7.3%)

09/16  Doctor Strange Annual -  44,778

Since issue #2 : -17.5%  

Star of a new arc + support from the movie make the sales go up two months in a row, whithout any variant cover. Meanwhile, the Annual sells almost at the same level. It seems like the perfect time to try to launch another serie…This will be done next month !

47- CAPTAIN AMERICA STEVE ROGERS

05/16  Cap America SR #1  -140,222                  
06/16  Cap America SR #2  -  74,884                  
07/16  Cap America SR #3  -  65,455  (-12.6%)
08/16  Cap America SR #4  -  49,559  (-24.3%)  (CV2)
09/16  Cap America SR #5  -  50,536  (+  2.0%) (CV2)

Since issue#2 : -32.5%

If seems quite difficult to make sense of this weird behavior. This issue has no variant cover at all. Yet, that’s almost two times what CA Sam Wilson is currently selling. Should the title remain over 40K, that would be quite a success concerning Marvel strategy with the character (which seems applied currently to the Hulk).

49- STAR WARS POE DAMERON

04/16-  SW Poe Dameron Ltd  #1  -  175,322    
05/16   SW Poe Dameron Ltd  #2  -    68,922   (-60.7%)

09/16   SW Poe Dameron Ltd  #6  -    50,275   (-  3.8%)

Since issue #2: -27.1%   

Could it have find its level already ?

Since issue #2: -27.4%

That’s stability for you ! Amazing numbers for an Iron Man title. Marvel is trying to capitalize on it with a second ongoing Iron Man serie but seems to struggle with it so far.

Average +% TPB Sales issues #1-4: +9.9%

No variant cover this month. Another Marverl sucess from Jeff Lemire, who’s also selling very well in TPBs. Will Jeff Lemire also nail it with Nova, after Logan, Extraordinary X-Men and Moon Knight ?

Seeing how little the CV2 tag seemed to improve its sales, I’m not sure if it was such a great idea to bother the Ms Marvel title with it. Readers not used to read crossover interferences could have been quite bothered. Converting to crossovers the new readers to which Ms Marvel seems to appeal doesn’t seem likesuch a reader-friendly strategy.

After last month tremendous sales – thanks to Justin Trudeau appearance-, back to reality. It’s hard for Marvel to sell those side-event anthologies series. This one is doing ok, even if miles away from its parent title.

Something really went wrong with of the launching this title. Same writer than Invincible Iron Man, with an even if not more prestigious artist name attached to it, both with CV2 tie-ins and… International is selling twice less than Invincible !

Marvel has proved more persistent with other properties. This one is no longer sollicited. That probably also means that the nicely priced A-Force Presents anthology is also dead, after its 6th issue released this month (and not showing up in the charts, which is a bad omen).

This mini sold way better than if it would have been a Hercules CV II tie-in arc. Marvel did the right thing to sell it separatly from Hercules’ cancelled ongoing serie. Add to that a gorgeous Jay Anacleto main cover, with a very sexy Hercules -with a tiny ponytail !

Would I be Marvel, I’ll be quite worried about my upcoming Gamorra series.

  1. More about Ms. Marvel TPB sales: Here are the bookscan numbers:

    Vol. 1: 26,768 (2015) + 10,736 (2014 – released in October)
    Vol. 2: 15,673 (2015 – released in April)
    Vol. 3: 10,727 (2015 – released in June)
    Vol. 4 3,913 (2015 – released in December)

    And Bookscan doesn’t count sales through Scholastic Book Fairs or sales through library vendors.

    Ms. Marvel vol. 1: No Normal was Marvel’s #2 selling book on bookscan for 2015, bested only by the Civil War collection.

  2. If you can make it one column without gushing about Ms. Marvel and talking about how “sexy” a fictional character is, I’ll wire you 5 dollars.

  3. The first Civil War, the tie-ins were meaningful. With CW2, I don’t know nor do I care who’s on what side, and the only books that have really had enough relevance to get the cover tag were titles like Spider-Man (Miles) and Captain Marvel. I think Marvel figured the label would be like printing money, but in the end it scared us all away.

  4. Astonishing Ant-Man #11 wasn’t actually a Civil War 2 tie-in although it looks like it was solicited as one. There was definitely no CW2 logo on the cover of the issue I own, anyway.

  5. As Victor Satinsky, MD used to say in his tough training programs for high school students interested in biomedical careers, “If you don’t like it, DON’T COME.”Even in pharma, only upper-level people make the really big bucks. I, for one, would gladly work at NIH for a stable salary and relative job security without extracting big fees from inydrtsu.But then, I have scruples.

  6. This is 100% Agenda 21! They must really truly believe WE THE PEOPLE are ALL so Dumbed Down that WE will Report’ Our Gardens. This is another Agenda 21 Scheme that needs to be exposed! Once everyone registers ‘They’ Confiscate it, Remove the Owners and Nazi War Criminal George Soros buys up the land. This is Vial and Disgusting! This should go Viral! Thanks SO MUCH Chris for Posting!
