It seriously outsold the Rogues, Cheetah, Clayface, Mr. Freeze and Deathstroke?

@jake_fury: faith in the human race is restored with the sales spot for Joker's Daughter, though

I finally got yesterday the Villains Month books I've been wanting. Deathstroke and The Rouges. The only one I didn't get was Reverse Flash.

Damn it all, Joker did not deserve to be in the top 10 selling comics at all. And it's disappointing to see bad comics outselling good ones. Cannot believe Adventure Time is outselling the awesome TMNT.

Oh, shockers. Batman villains issues are top 10.

runner up Wonder Woman First born

As good as the comic may be, is it possible they just aren't as popular with people at the moment? I know that Adventure Time and My Little Pony have popular cartoons just now. Do the Turtles have one lately?

But yeah, it seems unfortunate that The Joker sold so well considering I haven't heard much positivity towards it.

#19 Posted by Lvenger (19044 posts) - - Show Bio

@bierschneeman: Cheetah's issue only sold 16,000 copies so I wouldn't say the First Born was anywhere near being the runner up.

@v_scarlotte_rose: I imagine their respective cartoons play a large role in sales. But TMNT has a good cartoon too and its sales stay in the mid 10000s usually .

#20 Posted by V_Scarlotte_Rose (6234 posts) - - Show Bio

@lvenger: That's kind of strange then. I would have thought it would have higher sales considering it's long history in comics and T.V., but if it's got a cartoon now and sales are still low, then I can't think why it would be, especially if it's a good comic, as I've heard.

#21 Posted by Dark_Guyver (2305 posts) - - Show Bio

@v_scarlotte_rose: The turtles have a pretty popular show on Nickelodeon. It was renewed for a second season, which starts this week. I just hate to see such a good book not even in the top 100.

Cheetah standard sized sold 16000...

the Normal Cheetah sold 31000 a full 5k more than first born

I went over it again to be sure and I am sure of my statements

Justice League Dark Eclipso would be third place loser

#23 Posted by Lvenger (19044 posts) - - Show Bio

@bierschneeman: There's only a 6,000 copy difference in it really. Not much to speak of in all honesty.

Was there any doubt? Joker actually sold more than FE #1 if you add both 2D and 3D versions.

I'm glad to see that Batman B&W and Ra's al Ghul made it too Top 50.

Now that I've read the TPB's..my new "hope" is that "X-O Manowar" will someday break the top 50. C'mon folks, give it a shot. I did off of Vine advice, and it has not disappointed.

One of the worst thing I've ever read

I may have mentioned this in another thread, but my LCS guy actually told me not to buy it.

Like, he actually persuaded me not to give him money.

If they do, it'll probably be next September, so you could start saving now. :)

I wonder what next Septembers gimmick will actually be though.

Thanks, I'm glad you liked it. :)

It shouldn't be too long to wait. I ordered three issues to review on Monday, so they could be here tomorrow.

I'll probably upload a review for the lowest seller(Gold Digger) shortly after it arrives and I read it, but I might wait a few days between that and the next September issue I do, just so there's less of a gap between the September and October reviews.
