    It's nice to see the X-men on the high spots again.

    I wonder how much are Hickman's X-men are going to change after people actually read the book. It is not bad but not as good as hox/pox.

    Batman continued to sell even with a bad run by King (less than Snyder/loeb), but x-men haven't been bet sellers lately and the issues have been very dissapointing.
    Some will buy because are Hickman fans or going to follow from hoxpox
    Hard to say but it will be probably same pattern from bendis and his avengers run

    I'd probably anticipate a gradual drop as consistent with any run to be honest. Like...reputation surely can only get you so far? I always argue, as in the case of Claremont, that just because your past work might have been masterpieces doesn't guarantee success for future works: if it isn't engaging enough to hold a portion of the audience then, yeah, there's gonna be a decline...it depends on how far Hickman's name gets him, I guess? Probably similar numbers to Batman?

    Really? Even from long-term or purist fans? That's interesting?

    That's because Twitter is a curated echo chamber. As an example, I don't see any support whatsoever for Donald Trump on my feed. That's because the people I follow don't like him. But the feed of someone who follows a ton of hyper conservative celebrities would see near universal support for Trump. Neither of those things are 100% correct.

    To bring it back to my point, I don't see ANY talk, positive or negative, about the current run, because I only follow one or two comic writers and none of the higher ups like JDW or Hickman.

    Mauraders # 2 is also on the advance list of redorders at # 2 on the comichron website that gives more detail so it seems to be doing pretty good in general.
    Don't let anyone else hold the candle that lights the way to your future because only you can sustain the flame.

    Twitter and Forums are tiny part of buying population. The forums and twitter could all be negative and it doesn't mean crap towards a book success. The best example is Rosenberg Uncanny run which is was bashed like crazy on the forums and twitter but actually numbers was strong. Rosenberg Uncanny was top seller on comixology( I believe in top 5 books always) and it was top 25 book on comichron tracking if you back look at it. The feedback for fans like us matter but I have seen universal hated stuff like Heroes in Crisis and Rosenberg Uncanny maintain stable high selling numbers. And we have proof that X-men fans won't just support anything because X-men disassemble numbers when straight down consistently and Age of X-man numbers where trash the entire time. Simple put the vast majority of fans didn't feel the same way about Rosenberg Uncanny run as the fans on social media on the forums.

    Now they are clearly more people who are unhappy with Hickman run/Dawn of X run than at the beginning but goal of having varying styles of books is that fans find a book that they like , People seem to think that because they don't like everything in Dawn of X it is failure. If you got one book that you love Dawn of X has done its job. For me I got 2 Marauders and X-force which I love and Excalibur, New Mutants, Fallen Angels and X-men are solid and creative teams will determine if I stick with them.

    And since we are talking numbers when R.B Silva takes over X-men the numbers are going to jump up.

    Ya sure about that? Could be wrong, but I'm sensing some subjectivity here.
