    Interesting. Of the top ten:

    6 are $3.99/4 are $2.99

    Three tie-in to Blackest Night.
    Four tie-in to the Dark Reigh/Seige storyline.

    Three mini-series (although I guess you can call Dark Avengers and New Avengers minis since they are ending).

    I’m encouraged that relatively standalone titles like Batman & Robin, Amazing Spider-Man and Uncanny X-Men ending up as high as they did. Batman & Robin excluded, I don’t think there is anything significant about those issues.

    I guess a dollar more in price makes a difference, but it makes a dollar more out of my pocket too.

    Makes sense that Siege took the top spot last month, considering Blackest Night #7 is due out this month. Feb will go back to normal with Blackest Night #7 taking the top spot.
