> 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.

There is no continuing downward trend at all. Rather, the numbers come back down to the same place they have been leveling off at for a while now. The "event" issues happen and Marvel sees a spike in the numbers. When the "event" concludes, the numbers return to just about the same spot they were before.

It's a VERY safe bet to say that Marvel (and we as readers) have reached and seen the end of the downward trend.

You can still hold out hope all you want, but the numbers don't lie. It's fair to say that Marvel is probably very pleased with sales of "Amazing".

So there will be no reversal of the current status quo. Well, at least not as a result of declining sales, anyway.
