    Action and Shazam so low is absolutely criminal. Flash too. Man, it's rough in general.

    When I see this I think - Here comes a linewide relaunch!

    That's a shame because a lot of the books are great right now.

    Interesting just how much Yara is outselling Diana by. Surprised how (relatively) high JL is as well.

    Batman is doing fine so we will probably get only relaunches for specific titles. Even from that list, titles like Swamp Thing and Wonder Girl are selling very well.

    Yara is still "fresh" and in the very low issue numbers.
    Will be interesting to compare sales of the two titles in another year or two (if neither of them get relaunched with a new "Issue #1!" in the meantime).

    Nice to see Yara's title doing well. Shame they have issues capitalizing on it with the frequent delays.

    Love him or hate him, Bendis is still a "name" writer and attracts just as many readers as he drives off.

    Nothing against Yara but reading this just made me think they might try to outright replace Diana with her faster.

    Weirdly enough it seems like the Bendis "touch" might have finally hit with JL instead of Superman or Legion.

    Eh, #3 is usually where stuff starts to meaningfully settle down. It certainly isn't enough to explain a 10k gap by itself.

    Plus, "fresh" characters fail more often than they succeed (remember the "New Age of DC Heroes" books?)

    A mid-table (#37) position isn't really "name writer" numbers. That's someone like Cates (whose Venom run sold multiple times the immediately prior run) or Tynion (whose creator-owned Department of Truth outsells every non-Batbook from DC. And he wrote two of the Batbooks to boot!).

    Plus, by the end of his Marvel spell, his star had waned A LOT - some of the numbers on his later Marvel books were pretty awful. In Dec 2017, for instance, his three Marvel books - Spider-Man (the Miles book) #235, Invincible Iron Man #595 and Spider-Men II #5 - were all between 26.9k and 28.6k. And he didn't boost sales on Superman or Action, despite them dropping to monthly when they had been fortnightly under the previous regime.

    perhaps the delays on the book are hurting it
