    Okay, maybe this is a stupid question, but what does the [*] after some of the titles mean?

        It means they’re returnable, so Diamond has automatically deducted a certain % from the actual sales to try and account for future returns. I’ve heard that % is anywhere from 10-20%. When the actual returns come in, they’ll adjust the sales accordingly.

    Looks like DC’s “hat trick” worked.
    (I didn’t count them… but, looks like they are ahead.)
    This is more like “Las Vegas” than “ComicBookLand”… because you never know if you will get your money’s worth… or a steaming turd… for your $3 or $4 dollars!
    I’ll be spending my quarters at one of those “grab a cheap stuffed toy with a claw” games instead of buying this junk.
    At least the odds are in my favor than way.
    (After waiting for decades for an Avenger/JLA crossover… I decided to be more cautious with my money… because all my comic book dreams had come true.)
    I have seen very few comics that I would risk my money to buy since then.
    And, it has only gotten worse. On all sides. Including the “independents”.
    I tried to get a group of young boys involved in comics for three “Free Comic Day”s in a row… and they were bored.
    And, this appears to be the same age group that all the companies are aiming for!
    Good luck on that!
    (Since these kids don’t have jobs… their parents will choose what they will pay for as entertainment!)

      Actually, it didn’t. But it didn’t lose that many sales from the 2nd issue. Here’s the total estimated sales to date for those 3 issues:

      #1 – 95,483
      #2 – 58,670
      #3 – 52,521

    Interesting, I wonder if this will mean changes for the other comic book companies. Money generally means changes, especially when you are getting less of it.

    Wow. Am I reading this right? Cause it looks like all DC’s #2 issues cracked the top 100.

    The fact that Penguin: Pain and Prejudice almost didn’t make the top 100 is a travesty. That was a great book.
