Major Spoilers Question Of The Day: Glow-In-The-Dark Chromium Hardcover Reversible Foil Enhanced Swahili Fudge Ripple Gatefold Variant Edition
The first reports are in, and Walking Dead #100 is being touted as the best selling comic since the speculator bubble burst back in the 90′s. Major Spoilers’ own Stephen has been saying damn near forever that the industry needs to diversify it’s output away from Spider-Man and the JLA (but probably not Batman, ’cause that guy is awesome) and the super-hero tributaries, and the success of this book seems to bear him out. For my part, I can’t help but look at the book’s dozen variant covers and remember the sales gimmicks of the 1990s as well as the dozens and dozens of copies of 1991′s X-Men #1 still lurking in my comics cave and quarter bins across the nation.
The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) heard something by the barn, and is gonna go check it out, asking: Is this a sign that the industry is returning to the successful days of years past, or could we be on the verge of another boom of speculator inflation?
