Quote:Here are ICv2â€™s estimates of the sales by Diamond Comic Distributors to comic stores on the top 25 comic titles in September:
I think the biggest thing to notice is that ASM is getting outsold by regular issue titles like a secondary Green Lantern title (GLC) and the Flash. While it's clear that ASM is the third franchise at Marvel right now (outside of the Avengers and X-Men), he still shouldn't be getting outsold by something like GLC.
ICV2 had a recent article about how comic sales are down for Q3, and they stated that one of the reasons was because the big titles are no longer selling as well as they were.
"...he still shouldn't be getting outsold by something like GLC."
He's not. There's clearly an issue of ASM that outsold GLC.
If the other 3 issues were called Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man, Spectacular Spider-Man, and Web of Spider-Man, would you still be making the argument that a book that was heavily tied to Blackest Night/Brightest Day was outselling the sister books of Amazing Spider-Man?
