Superman which was 5th last month didn't even get 10th this month what do you guys think the reason was
superman didn't make top ten most selling comics July 2014
Nothing. Action hasn't been in the top 10 since Morrison left, but Pak is bringing it back. Superman by Johns went up against Batman by Snyder.
Even i I knew that that wasn't going to do well. Plus, people buy Marvel event books and, for some reason, Guardians of the Galaxy sold well?
Not really surprising. When new superhero flick is coming out, for a time all attention centered on it; even people who usually not into comics might pick up movie-related prints. Give it month or two – and some of Supes’ titles will be in top-10 list.
I am sure some one is going to blame Man of Steel.
... or Doomed event.
^ this made me lol....
On a serious note, I blame the writers for being lazy. Majority of them aren't creative enough to generate a feeling of genuine conflict and tension for Superman, without relying on crappy plot devices (mind control or kryptonite for example). In some ways I think Superman should leave Earth, as they have a better opportunity to really mess with him off planet. Instead of always putting Earth and/or Metropolis in danger, they can really make an effort of him being in danger, and create genuine tension.
I'm not really surprised.
There were some bad decisions in terms of story writting. Not all writers delivered what was expected of them.
And of course with this Guardians of The Galaxy thing, it was more than expected that people woud start paying more attention to Marvel than DC comics.
Jeez ppl it's not doom and gloom,just look at the list,look at comics in general.the pie is getting bigger, and there is way more choices to buy now,so if your book is 67th it might still be considered a success.not to mention the top ten are full of event,movie,bats books.
Course I will agree unchained dropped the ball being so late
The pricks that were after us are out, the geist invasion is over and it looks its time to the return of the dead.
