This isnt meant as a bashing thread, lets say that right off the bat. I'm just curious how sales look so far at everyone's comic shops. Granted part 2 just came out today but how many books from last week are still around? I saw lots of part 1 still around, but I dont know if that means people are staying away. If anyone can post sales figures when they come out, this would be the place to do it.

Also, feel free to post comments on conversations overheard at the store regarding BND. My store owner said he likes it the more he explans it to shoppers. The guy he was helping seemed to like it too.

I only bought Spider-Girl. :o
 
I know that some of the local stores here ordered extra copies to get the 1:20 variant as well as the 1:100 variant.
 
Really? What do the variants look like?
 
The only thing left at my shop is the two varients...the sketchbook, and the Times Square cover.

I think i might pick up the Times Square varient next week if it's still there. (they're asking $25.00)...
 
there's literally 25-30 copies of the first issue left at my store, and that's just what's on the shelf...
 
When I went to my comic shop 2 weeks ago, everyone was joking about putting a sign up that saids don't buy it. There were about 15-20 issues on the shelf, and even the store owner wasn't hard pressed to convince me to get it. I asked him if I should give it a shot anyway and if I was being too close minded, because with comics this guy never leads me wrong, he hesitated and changed the subject.
Just a few days ago, I went there again to pick up Thor #5. Still about 15-18 copies on the shelf.

I got mine for $12.95 Cdn... which is about $25.00 US funds... :woot: :woot: :woot:

:csad:
 
Regarding Variant Covers...

Do subscription owners get them? Do they request them?

You say 1:100 and 1:20, does that ratio still apply to subscribers?

F*** Marvel if they don't offer those to their subscribers, who already put the money down consistently.
 
I'm not quite sure how many of the first or second Issues of BND there are left. Less than 15 I think though.
 
When the first issue of BND came out, on my way to the shop, I saw a guy reading it, walking down the sidewalk. So the interest was definately there. There were no comics left on the shelf, or in the bins, and the guys said that they had sold out.

With Part 2, well, that might be a different story. While I was in line, a guy asked to take Amazing off of his pull list. The LCBS guy laughed, and told him he wasn't the first, that quite a few guys did the same. So will the boycotters have their say? I guess we'll see what's on the rack next week. There were a lot on the rack, but I go pretty early, and there were a lot last week at that time also.

At 3 times a month, that is honestly a lot of money on f-ing money on comic books. BND sales will not help spidey I do not think.

Can anyone answer my question regarding variant covers and subscriptions a couple of posts up?
 
They've got plenty at my shop. They can't seem to get rid of 'em. Ultimates 3 sold out immediatly, but ...

good lord, this is bad. Who's idea was the last two years of this?
 
I frequent two comic shops.

I asked one what the sales were for Spider-Man. He said good, unfortunately. Note he said it, I wasn't editorializing it.

When I went to the other comic shop, which I have been going to for over 20 years, I asked the owner how the reaction to Spider-Man was. He just laughed and shook his head. He said you would not believe how bad the reaction has been. He said he's had people who normally don't say anything complain. He said it's not the usual crazed guy on the internet this time. It's more your average joes (I don't mean Joe Q, though :cwink:). He also, said the sales were about what they were for an average Spider-Man. For the record, he also hates what happened, Pete making a deal with the devil being his main bone of contention. But, he does like the art and stories in BND.
 
^Me too....i want to get back to a Spidey with non-altered continuity and with his rich history and supporting cast.

(not to mention, MJ...portrayed smartly...)
 
Part 2 sold out in 2 days at my comic shop.

I picked up the regular (x2) and Hitch covers. The later costing about $14.00 at the time.

Briefly considered getting the Sketch cover too. But at £49.00, so that's about $98.00!, it was just a little out of my budget!!

They want $125.00 at my shop. :wow:

No way im paying that. I guess im cheap; i'd only pay that (and more) for Ditko or Romita Sr.,...:yay:
 
Two of the three shops I have in town (population 125 000 :wow: ) ordered the sketchbook cover for people that asked for it, and I think they were charging a minimum of $100... they weren't sure how to price it when I asked.
