    I guess movie hype does help sometimes.
    I wonder if it's movie hype making people checking alongside Kelly Thompson's fanbase and then just sticking around longer because the writing is actually really good?

    This here is why Marvel does event after event.
    The Miles Morales tie-in is even selling better than his main series.

    Black Cat out of the top 10 but still in the top 30 is good, and Savage Avengers is showing great hold with its chart position.

    Jane Foster outsold Thor!
    As is normal, X-Men is the A-team, Avengers is the B-team, FF is the C-team, and Guardians is the D-team.

    That's only because Hickman is doing the X-Men. We'll see how long that lasts.

    Well, it IS a number one issue. Those do tend to do better, you know.

    King Thor #1 will surely out sell Valkyrie #3 or whatever issue is out that month.

    Should anyone be shocked by that when it happens or take as proof that one is more popular than the other?

    No, of course not.

    X-Men are in a relaunch. A massive, headline grabbing one. Of course it's going to be doing well.

    Also, there's no true "normal." Any of these teams can and have switched places on the charts depending on the creative teams involved and the respective heat each title has at any particular time.

    Issue 2 actually, but your point still stands.

    To be fair, that was only issue 2, so it hasn't plateaued yet. And Thor will be back on top next month as it's a #1.

    This is exactly how I would rank it, even when I ignore the sales data.

    So looking at Future Foundation and Agents of Atlas two team book both premiering in August. Curious how much better the reorders were on agents of atlas for it to not get the ax compared to FF despite FF having higher #1 sales.

    So much for breaking X-men #1's records.

    AoA is only a mini. I'm just really curious how bad those #2 orders must have been and why if retailers were at least that high on #1.

    Also, as it pointed out in the top of the comichron list, Valkyrie #2 was overshipped. (along with Gwenpool and Ms Marvel) Looks like it was by about 50%, so it would have been about 28-29kish without that. However, #2 did also get a second printing, so it probably actually sold a bit better than that, i mean Marvel doesn't overship for no reason, the expectation is that some of those extra issues will sell and boost sales of future issues. I think for it, and for Loki which also got an overship with issue one and has also been getting second printings, it will be around issue 4 or so that we really know how it's doing.

    A few notes, WOW the dropoff for Aero. 70k to 15k. ouch. I remember in the thread for last month it was said Aero didn't get an overship, but SOMETHING must have been done to drastically inflate the numbers for issue 1. It looks like it, and Sword Master, are both dead in the water as far as North American sales go, though to be fair, I think those are aimed more at Asian markets, which may keep them afloat.

    Future Foundation... yeah you'd think that even if it halved numbers for issue 2, that would still place it above the 15k cancellation danger zone, so it may have seen a huge dropoff for issue 2...

    and yeah, looks like Captain Marvel is actually one of the few books that is GAINING readers. very rare for that to happen.

    Lots and lots of variants for Aero #1 including some high ratio ones. First issue of first ongoing of 'hot' character and all that. The book is an English language reprint anyway so yes it is already printed in Asia, but the NA reprints will probably still have to justify the cost.
    and yeah, looks like Captain Marvel is actually one of the few books that is GAINING readers. very rare for that to happen.
    I am curious where the uptick happens, because it just might have to do with speculators, I mean 'readers', who are interested in some new character.
