    That would be Amazing Spider-Man #1, which is rumored to have sold over 700,000 copies.

    Marvel made hand over fist with ASM #1. Assuming Marvel takes in 40% of the cover price, that means they earned $1,680,000 off ASM #1. If the issue had been $4 rather than 6, they would have made just $1,120,000. That is a difference of $560,000! To put that in perspective, each issue of Superior Spider-Man sold an average of 76,000 copies over the last three months. Assuming the same 40% cut, that means each issue of Superior made Marvel $121,000, which means that two dollar price hike was worth 4.6 issues of Superior Spider-Man!

    Thinking about it in this way, the way DC has been upping the price tag of a few issues of Batman by one dollar is actually hugely significant to DC's bottom line. If a normal issue of Batman brings in $184,000, then a five dollar price tag will rake in $230,000. That is a difference of $46,000, or one quarter of a single issue of Batman. To put that number in perspective, Supergirl earned DC $27,000. So that one dollar price hike on a single Batman issue is worth 1.7 issues of Supergirl (or, more interestingly, 3.8 Batwing issues).

    April 2014 Comic Book Sales Figures

    Batman Eternal 1-4 combined sales of 316,392 units + the 108,998 of Batman 30 = $$$$

    Diamond's estimate of 532k for Amazing Spider-Man shows how incomplete a monthly snapshot of sales are. The books sold on the last week don't get reorders until the next month.

    Exactly.

    The data released by Diamond can only show the sales trends but it really can't be used to make firm judgement on sales.

    Which is why I actually stopped debating sales figures because we are dealing with incomplete data.

    Batman had some really low sales there. 108k? That's down quite a bit from a month ago (which was around 113-115k). Maybe Batman's sales were being cannibalized a bit by Eternal this month.

    On an unrelated note, yikes @ that Ultimate relaunch. All-New Ultimates #1 and Ultimate FF #1.

    30k
    and 23k for brand-spanking new #1s....

    Sinestro seems to have pulled in solid numbers, even if it was not a home run. 46k is very respectable, especially given the rest of the family's numbers.

    The guy who owns my local comic shop said Ultimate FF was the first Marvel Now #1 to not sell a single copy in its first week. That does not bode well for the title.

    Just more of Marvel editorial's neglect towards the Ultimates lines. They were actually making a great turnaround with Hickman on Ultimates, but they took him off there to do Avengers and replaced him with Humphries of all writers. I think the results on Avengers and Ultimates really speaks for itself on the foolishness of that move.

    Still UFF had a decent run with Bendis, Ellis, Millar and Carey.

    Yeah, that and the fact the it wasn't named Batman or Superman so DC didn't give it a big marketing push.

    Also, yikes! That sounds pathetic.

    What specifically did DC do for Batman or Superman that they didn't do for Sinestro?

    Forget ultimate FF. Just look at regular FF sales. Its down to 60 on the list after three issues. What the heck has happened to this one time flagship title?

    It's surprising how poorly FF, Captain America and Iron Man sell. Those numbers on Eternal are pretty amazing. If it can stabilize anywhere north of 50,000 then we will have a Batman weekly forever
