Sales scene little better in April

The sales charts were published for April, with solely Fear Itself selling over 100,000 copies. Everything else, however, sold well below that, and it's possible that Marvel's latest crossover will soon drop to those levels as well. And while the Thor movie is doing pretty well at the box office, the Thor comic sold less than 83,000 copies. Again, this is a sad example of how, even if a movie wins over the audience, it's not prompting them to buy the comics en masse.

Labels:

That's why I figure these Marvel movies are more of a curse than a blessing. If they didn't exist, the publishing arm might just blow up and some real change would come. Throw the bums out!

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.
