@sbyrstall: This is only the second event since the New 52 began in 2011. Compared to how many Marvel has (about 2 per year), that's a pretty small number. Plus, DC has said that post-Convergence they will be focusing on telling stories within the titles and keeping the events low. Which is actually a somewhat risky move in the current event-driven market. The two things that always dominate the sales charts are events and number 1s and DC hasn't been relaunching all of their books annually and are less event driven. Which may contribute to the giant gap between Marvel and DC right now in market share.
