    Nice to see the books getting that level of review!

    Thank you.

    Is X-Men and New Mutants story line pretty decent? That's where I'm thinking of picking up.

    That is a tricky question

    X-men does not have a storyline It is series of individual stories right now, New Mutants story right now is split up good story by Hickman and decent story by Brisson. If you like New Mutants in the past you will probably like the Hickman part of the story.Honestly I would say wait until both X-men and New Mutants are trade to get them if you haven't gotten them yet. If you are determined to pick up something saying I would say pick up the New Mutants. As good as X-men is it is not everyone I would suggest reading a bunch of reviews and try to get a feel for you will like X-men.

    Also important to note that the books that are selling in the 45-50k range are not a slew of x-men books as usual, but titles like Excalibur, Marauders, Fallen Angels that a year ago would never even be released and if released would have never done these numbers. I think this was done on purpose, in order to exploit the hype to revive or introduce new brands instead than relying on having the usual 4 different X-Men teams an X-Force and a Wolverine book. Next wave looks similar with Giant x-men and Wolverine as bigger books and new books like Hellions.

    As a general note it only makes sense to compare sales based on the current states of the market, not when the market performed totally different, it’s the same logic than saying that anything is a failure compared to Claremont 400k x-men.
    i'm not even comparing to 2000s. I'm using the last 3 x-men relaunches on 2010s.
    X-men had 4 relaunches on 2010s, thi sis really a sign of the trouble for marvel comics way of handling it

    I don't think names are important, what matters are characters, art and of course hype. What I heard on this forum was how sales were awful, x-men weren't selling. ANd it wasn't only about the flagship book
    we are few issues on, of course numbers would be good

Retailers have not had time to adjust orders yet, and similarly readers may or may not know where they stand, and yes, this goes both ways, we could be seeing people pick it up from word of mouth and retailers making big reorders just as likely as retailer slash January/February orders and readers finally get through their stack of issues and decide that all those other new shiny #1s are a better use of their dollars.
    Also the new books. Image said that there is more comics than what comics ships can support.

    Yeah my LCS is overflowing with titles, many of them partially hidden and covered by others, much more than usual.

    Seems like that isn't the case. Digital sales stopped growing, while direct market and book sales grew more
    Direct market sales didnít grow last years, dollar wise they were 2% positive but with less copies sold at a higher price.

    Note to the team behind X-Force :
    Wolverine on the cover rather than Forge (Don't get me wrong, I love your take on Forge. But even"cut in half" Logan would sell more)

    I’m not an expert when it comes to sales, but these look like ok numbers. I wish X-force was closer to Hickman’s X-men numbers. It is so good, and often times it feels like it should be the flagship.

    Not sure what is the deal with X-Force's numbers cause that book is awesome but I'm loving the numbers that the Hickman book is doing.
