> Your charts are great, thank you sir! As always this is what I've been waiting for, and now eagerly awaiting next month as well, so far doesn't seem to be leveling off, seems to be continuing it's downward trend.

The way I see it, it's starting to balance off pretty well. Case in point:

Issue 564 sold 68,882 units
Issue 565 sold 69,182 units
Issue 566 sold 68,912 units
Issue 567 sold 68,130 units
Issues 568-573 were part of an event so, IMO, don't count.
Issue 574 sold 69,069 units
Issue 575 sold 68,913 units

Not taking into account New Ways to Die, the units sold seem to be levelling off just below the 70,000 units sold. At three times a month, that's approx. 210,000 units sold in a month. Not bad at all, IMO. It seems, from your post, that you wish for the title to fail so that they reverse the marriage dissolution? You know that's not gonna happen...

Based on the numbers, I'm not gonna be crazy and say that OMD/BND is a huge success but it is doing quite well considering that it's going against titles tied in to big events.
