As crossovers keep getting published, the sales continue to decline

ICV2 is going out of their way to spin last month's sales as some kind of success, all because 4 titles sold above 100,000 last month, but I think the current charts tell that with each new crossover from Marvel/DC, the less well they sell. Blackest Night dropped below 150,000 copies, and plenty of other titles are slowly declining as well.

Eventually, they'll have to cease with the crossovers as it becomes clear that they're not cutting it anymore, and simultaneously, I think they'll find that if they want to continue business, they'll have to belatedly shift to a different format for comics.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
