DC Comics - The Rebirth is Here


#2751

Usually it’s just direct market sales.


#2752

Always the same Chris, they are single issues in the US and Canada only. That’s all Diamond releases. Digital issues sales are unknown, foreign sales unknown, trade sales mostly unknown.


#2753

With nothing to go on other than the number of people who read digitally on here, that must stick another 5-10k on the numbers surely?


#2754

The word is it is around 15-30% of the sales generally. Mr Millar’s reveal of some of his royalty statements say foreign sales are a similar figure, around 30%.

So all the numbers are always much higher in reality than the Diamond estimates but you have to take into account it is comparative. If 15k is the cancellation point there most of the comics may be actually selling 25k but that’s if it follows the typical pattern.

Editors at Marvel have said that Ms Marvel, where the target audience is outside the typical crowd, is their first title ever to sell more digital copies than print. So the Diamond numbers there may not matter as much. Similarly for books that have a strong trade following.

@Jim - Looks like there’s a new Blue & Gold in an upcoming Action Comics story. :wink:


#2756

As far as I’m concerned they’re gold and brown.


#2757

Texture like sun.


#2758

Like the inside of your underwear.


#2759

There’s more red in there.


#2760

Has there been any follow-up at all to the “three Jokers” reveal from (I think) Justice League #50?


#2761

MR MIRACLE is pretty good. Reads a lot like a DC version of the old Marvel MAX line, particularly ALIAS.


#2762

This is supposed to play a part in either Dark Nights: Metal or Doomsday Clock coming up but I forget which one. I’m leaning towards the later as it seems like it was Geoff Johns that mentioned it.


#2763

Superman 75 was published 25 years ago:


#2764

With DOOMSDAY CLOCK, does it take place only a year or so after Watchmen’s ending in the 80’s or is it moved up to present day?


#2765

DC’s February solicits are up in all of the usual spots, and collected in the Solicitations for February 2018 thread.


#2766

Metal #6 cover - don’t click if you don’t want to be spoiled.

My comment - what the fook is that?

Utterly mad, utterly brilliant.


#2767

It’s the cover of Metal #6.


#2768

You think I’m funny? Like a clown? You think I’m here to amuse you?


#2769

Yes?


#2770

You’re going to be digging a hole.
