I'm really digging the new series so far, although i feel like i'm probably one of the few. The mix of action and science is good, i like how he has 'fair play' tattooed on his arms (which just seems so cool in a retro way), and the art is really good. Maybe Mr. Terrific isn't a ground-breaking series, but it's entertaining, and that's thw whole point of comics to me.

What book that Jim Lee worked on ever reached 400,000-600,000 copies sold for a single issue? Or what book ever for that matter reached those sale numbers?
|Lots and lots of comics have reached those numbers. 400,00-600,000 copies was normal, and maybe a little bit low, for the top-selling comics at anytime except the last 10-15 years.|
Just to give you an idea of how far sales have dropped, here's the average MONTHLY circulation of the top 10 comics in 1966. Even Archie sold almost 500,000 a month!

@Maki_P: This is slightly offtopic, but do you know of any comic shops in the SJO area other than Ciudad Manga? I also live in Costa Rica and I'm hoping there's something out there (useless Ciudad Manga, as you said...)
PS Congrats on getting your letter published!
I've always thought Dawn looked really cool. The red hair with the tattoo (or whatever it is) on her face is a great design. Then I tried to read a few Dawn comics and I could barely follow them. Still, she'd be great in the hands of the right creator.
I just got back into the X-Men (and comics in general) after a 15 year absence. Is there anywhere I can read a brief summary of what's gone in the X-Books since about 1995 or so? I realize "brief" is a relative term when you're talking about a soap opera like this, but I'm feeling pretty lost right now.
