SSM in terms of numbers?

#1 Posted by Phaedrusgr (1667 posts) - - Show Bio

I was curious, so I read a relative article, but it had statements of Comic shop owners, not the numbers! It was quite contradictive, cause half of the shop owners were completely disappointed of the numbers, while the other half was "grateful", since it brought many old and new faces to the shop. Yet, everybody agreed on one thing. ASM 700 sold much more than SSM 1. What do you think?

I didn't buy ASM 700 or Superior 1. I think my comic book shop still has both issues in stock. Once Slott is off Spider-Man I might start picking it up again.

Don't think they've released sales numbers yet

@fesak2: You're right, they haven't. But what do you think? It'll be a sussess in terms of numbers? That's my real question.

Amazing 700 sold ~250000 something i think, maybe up to 300k, which is pretty good for an anniversary issue. Usual sales for Amazing is around 50-60k.

The biggest NOW relaunch titles have #1 sales from 100k up to 300k. I'd guess Superior would be somewhere inbetween, but the sales of the first issue doesn't say much, really since the dropoffs usually are quite big,

I was at my local comic shop this past weekend, and believe you me I think it's time we the comic buying public stop supporting Marvel under Mister Quesada's reign because all he's doing is flooding all of comics with another hurtful jam of mass marketing..... Sound similar to the flooded times of the 90's and I won't buy a Spider-Man or Marvel comic of any kind till the man is outta there! NUFF SAID!

Amazing Spider-Man #700 sold 200,966 copies, only 14,000 more than Avengers #1, which seems a little surprising.

Great idea, to bad there are those people who enjoy Spidey now. Will admit though some titles aren't bad I've heard, and im want to read age of ultron so they are getting my money for 10 weeks

So despite the vehement angst expressed by many Spider-man fans about the direction of Superior Spider-Man, it appears sales wise the book is incredibly popular
