    Kinda surprised. Still it IS a #1 with Batman in it, let’s see how #2 does.

    Card stock variants were $1 extra and listed as a separate item. Taken together, Batman adds to 80K
    It's the Dynamic Duo! Batman and Robin!... and Red Robin and Red Hood and Nightwing and Batwoman and Batgirl and Orphan and Spoiler and Bluebird and Lark and Gotham Girl and Talon and Batwing and Huntress and Azreal and Flamebird and Batcow?

    Since when could just anybody do what we trained to do? It makes it all dumb instead of special. Like it doesn't matter anymore.

    Surprised not to see Aquaman on this list. With the hit movie, you'd think he could sell more comics right now.

    I think its more about the state of DC Comics at the moment. If there was ever a sign that there needed to be a change of leadership, this would be it!

    Iron Man and Cap were the stars of the billions of $ MCU and yet they still don’t sell well. It’s more an indictment of the current direct market method to be honest.

    Exactly. It seems in the US direct market, the bestselling titles are in the 60-80k range, and the mid-level is something like 30-40k. Factor in international and digital at $4 per pop, that's still significant revenue - $150k+ per issue.

    I'd take that, if I was Marvel/DC.

    No question they keep moving away from the DM in the coming years, though. Fewer comics, focus more on profitable IPs, etc.

    I don't think most people who liked the Aquaman film are going to rush to find a comic book store, of which there may be none in their area, and suddenly start buying the product.

    Also, one thing I've noted with these comics films lately is that they have legions of casual fans, which is great, but I'm not sure they're creating a lot of hardcore followers (the types who actually become fascinated with the mythologies and WILL rush to comics shops), especially for how many people see them. Granted, I'm not polling the world, so I don't have graphs, but it's the impression I come away with.

    If that's even the case, it's probably because the movies--and I'm talking about the good ones--are usually just okay and fun, but nothing that is going to change your life, touch you on some profound level, or even make you think all that much. I'm sure I'm putting it a bit melodramatically, but it's something I thought about recently. It seems to be enough for audiences that the movies tell their stories decently, have good actors, funny jokes, lots of spectacle and stylish fight scenes to be big hits, which isn't anything I'm complaining about. But I'm not sure they're tickling people's imaginations the way, say...Game of Thrones did at its peak, which made a lot of people hungry to learn more about that world and rush off to read what they could about it.

    Or I could be completely wrong.

    Sort by the Fused column to get the totals of the separate listings that Pohzee explained.
