Avengers Academy failing in sales?!

23,000?!  That's dangerously low!  The cancellation threshold for Marvel is 20,000!!!
I'm really scared to lose this great gem of a book!  Please spread the word out about this book!

@Cafeterialoca:
Are sales really that low? That sucks. I thought it was doing well. It's probably my favorite title right now. And the people who run my local comic store love the book and recommend it to customers.

From what I'd heard, sales were on the up & looking healthy.  This is the first I've heard otherwise.

It's a nice book. I wouldn't like to see it getting cancelled.

I really liked both this title & Young Allies.  YA took longer to tell stories, but I liked it just as much (if not more at times).  I'd hate to see both titles get the axe, but since there have been some months with 2 issues solicited, then I would be very surprised to see AA cancelled as well.

I liked Avengers: The Initiative better.
The characters were more interesting while the characters in Avengers Academy are meh. Don't really feel i care what happens to them.

I agree. I like Academy, and I hope it doesn't get canceled, but I certainly enjoyed Initiative much more. I liked those characters and their interactions amongst themselves and the more well-known figures in the Marvel universe. It's unfortunate that they have all disappeared into obscurity. I don't really have any particular interest in any of the Academy characters yet. Finesse seems interesting, Veil is incredibly annoying, and the rest are a little dull.

Well that's worrying news.

@Jetshade:  23,000 is close to cancel zone.  Below 20,000 is canceled.
Gage did say that the book would be safe as long as sales are constant and no crazy drops happen.
