    Excellent use of the Diamond sales figures - now to prove your point, compare the sales figures with the other House of M tie-ins, as your point was that it sold well for what it was.

    If it sold above the other tie-ins, it sold well; if it sold poorly relative to the other tie-ins, not so much. *grins*

Ok, the reason why I didn't include the other spinoffs is because I didn't know which ones you wanted to consider to be true spinoffs. A few relative series.

42     House Of M Avengers 1      $2.99     47,508
16     X-Men 198 1      $2.99     68,675
37     Silent War 1      $2.99     44,077
49     Sentinel Squad One 1      $2.99     34,976
29 Son Of M 1 $2.99 62,255
51     Captain Britain & M.I.13 1     $2.99     43,268

So seems like it's right under the X-Men miniseries, which I think is acceptable. Apparently there was much more interest in the Quicksilver miniseries then there was in the Captain Britain series with Spitfire.

The poster tried to claim that Son of M was a bad seller, and he was completely wrong. My position is to simply give the title the sales credit I thought it was due.
