    Out of curiosity, why would the X-books not have any changes until later in the year?

    Most are mid-storyline, about to be cancelled, or just starting up. We'll probably see more changes to Blue and Gold after the wedding, maybe a new line direction.

    Not as bad as how it screwed over the Inhumans. That brand is toxic now, it completely backfired.

    Gosh, turning fans of a more popular, long-established franchise against a new story concept just getting its legs under it didn't translate into a popularity boost. Who coulda guessed?

In fact a better comparison would be to their solos, not a team book, and Jean solo book sold considerably less than the team books. So even with that Jean isn't selling WW numbers. So that my friend would be fair. But we can agree to disagree not trying to derail this thread any further.
    Were the first issues of Wonder Woman also released weekly? Cause I think that is what hurt Resurrection most. (They should have made it a Giant Sized Special instead. Then Jeanís resurrection would have been a true success.)
    Still, Jeanís return was among the top selling X-books. Not sure we can really ask for more at this stage.
    Hopefully Red gets decent legs. Would be lovely to have a truly successful X-Men title.

    Agreed. All in all Marvel tried to shove Inhumans down peoples throats (several different times) rather than giving that energy to the
    X-Books, and the whole line suffered as a a result. Give the people what they want and they will be happy, a simple business model.

    Well for all that we know the Red, Blue, and Gold teams as they are now and about to be are just killing time so to speak until what many guess is a big crossover or event later on this year and then new rosters and such...

    I wonder if marvel can still pull a great cross over event as Second Coming and Messiah Complex.

    Nice, so adult Jean's return managed to move a grand total of 338,842 comics, in just a matter of a mere 6 weeks. That's an average of 67,768 copies over the actual 5 of release, and even 56,473 still, if you include the 6th when there was not. Again, weeks, not months. Pretty impressive, I'd say.

    Other takeaways, her #1 was both the #1 X AND Marvel title, for its month of release. Spidey was the nearest competitor, but a distant 2nd, with what looks to be less than half that.

    2-5 combine to around 193,000 for last month, and are bested only in that same respect, by Batman's one-two punch. Again... the Batman, x2.

    They were also the 5th, 7th, 8th, & 9th best performing, non Star Wars books for Marvel. 1st, and 3rd-5th, for the X-line. Behind only Avengers #675, Spidey/Venom #1, OM Hawkeye #1, & Spidey #794, w/AstonX sneakin' in there for 6th. They're all monthlies, too, BTW.

    And that's in today's more troubled market, which is especially true, where Marvel's concerned. So I'm not too worried 'bout Red, and in fact, think things look & sound rather promising for it.

I'd like to know how many LCS's orders are collated to create these Diamond figures, too. Like how you can see how many theaters a movie plays in relative to it's overall box office.

    That's a start, I suppose, but elective reporting will give highly skewed data.
    Let the flames destroy all but that which is pure and true!
