Diamond Comic Distributors sent the breakdown of the top comics sold during February 2009.  Not surprising, Marvel’s Amazing Spider-Man #583 ruled the top spot with the fifth printing of the Obama cover. This lead to Marvel taking the number one position for publishers during the month, grabbing nearly 45% of the dollar share for the month. Batman #686 came in second place with only Justice League of America #30 joining the title in the Top 10 list.  Buffy once again served Dark Horse Comics well, placing 12th once again.  Of the series that were canceled by DC in February, Blue

When Marvel’s Amazing Spider-Man #583 arrives next week, it will feature a special story featuring Spider-Man fighting those who would prevent President-Elect Obama from being sworn in.  No, I’m not talking about Rumsfeld and Cheney, but real Spider-Man foes like the Chameleon. “When we heard that President-Elect Obama is a collector of Spider-Man comics, we knew that these two historic figures had to meet in our comics’ Marvel Universe,” says Marvel’s Editor-in-Chief Joe Quesada.  “Historic moments such as this one can be reflected in our comics because the Marvel Universe is set in the real world.  A Spider-Man fan moving
