Default Re: Is the movie going to boost the GN sales considerably?

Unfortunately, with mainstream superheroes, movies have no effect on the GN sales because quite simply there are just too many books for people to have a clear idea of what to read if they're interested in the characters. Watchmen's sales rose because there's only one watchmen book (Well, there used to be), Walking Dead's sales are climbing because there's only one walking dead ongoing book. The same goes for Kick Ass, Scott Pilgrim, 300, Sin City etc. etc. If people have a clear directive of what to read if they're interested in Spider-man or the Avengers or the X-men then you would see a sales increase, but there are so many books that they wouldn't even know where to begin.
