You know it's not my natural inclination to defend the low sales of Amazing Spider-Man, but the title does seem finally to have stabilized. Maybe it's because recent stories have been particularly well-hyped, maybe not, but it looks as if the book has settled between a general readership between 56,000 and 58,000.

Now, that may not be a good readership--in fact, I'd say it's downright poor for ASM--but I'm not seeing the continuous drop we've seen since the beginning of Brand New Day.
