    Big boost for Captain Marvel. She has really found more readers since her movie.
    X-titles lead, then Justice League, Avengers, and Star Wars. Fantastic Four trails all of them.

    Being in the MCU might have with regards to people actually speculating on her books. If it was readers, issue #7 would not have only had 26K orders, which just happens to be the last issue before Star enters the story (which only moved monthly orders up to around 36K). This recent issue (#12) saw almost a 30K increase in orders, which I would think had more to do with the new storyline but also the "first appearance of evil Carol Danvers". This kind of bump would usually lead me to think some sought after ratio variant was to credit, but I have not looked into it to say for sure.

    Now, it would be great if this storyline maintained a readership anywhere near these sales, but unfortunately a lot of those increased sales won't be books that are even opened up by the people buying them.

    If that hurts, then consider the fact that they may reboot (restart) with #1 and keep the writer that has his book where it's at.

    Which is silly at this point. Hasn't Coates already had three Black Panther #1s?

    More than he ever needed. They'll let him stay on the book long enough to reach the Legacy 200th issue.

    After that, it's so long!

    Insanity, pure insanity.

    He can't tell a decent Black Panther story but that won't stop him.

    The rumor upcoming restart would be number 3.

    It's past time for Coates to go. However in the eyes of Marvel-this is the top selling black hero (via trades) only Miles is behind him and after that it's indy guys like Spawn and Kwanza's Black. Dc is not in the running. At least not with black male leads.

    Naomi, Moon Girl, Riri, Shuri, Far Sector & Silencer is a toss up. All of them can boast being the top over each other.

    If all you care about is beating DC-he is doing that. Despite the horrible content inside.
    If you care about the others-keep an eye on Killadelphia & Farmhands. Since everyone else are minis or season like Naomi.

    Folks are getting tired. Despite Storm fans. It takes too long to tell a story-you should NOT need 2-3 volumes to tell a story that McDuffie would tell you in less than 5. We won't get into the deconstruction of Wakanda to pander to stereotypes and treat the Panther as a guest in his OWN book.

    That falls on Marvel.

    Holy shit, that's a HUGE bump for Captain Marvel WITHOUT any apparent overship. Sales for this run have been so weirdly inconsistent, but in an actual good way.

    He's also the writer keeping the title where it's at on trades, which are actually very good. His ''A Nation Under Our Feet'' trade is still on the first page of Marvel Best Sellers on Amazon, alongside other trade successes like Ms. Marvel, Miles Morales' Spider-Man, Jane Foster's Thor, Captain Marvel, Star Wars... That could be incentive enough for Marvel to keep him on the title.

    it has big initial hooks but less retention so to speak.

    Star's appearance had a bump that kept consistent from the speculators, and dark avenger is a controversial arc

    Jimmy is being done by Fraction, so it has a name creator on it. That and the book is absolutely fantastic and filling a niche not many other DC books are at the moment.

    I didn't think that many people were going to buy Yondu.
