So to guesstimate, New Ways to Die finished with like 79,500 issues ordered. Also as far as I know, it was the only issue of the 6 not to be announced as a sell out.

And, once all the variant covers are out of the way*, the orders end up... below 70k and falling once more. Exactly (to within one copy) where they were at the end of July. A typical "event" sales pattern.

*Apparently, the cover breakdown went:
#568 - 4 covers
#569 - 2 covers
#570 - 3 covers
#571 - 2 covers
#572 - 2 covers
#573 - 4 covers

I'm not 100% sure whether the cover list includes reprints, but I think it doesn't.
