Here's something unusual - a book going up mid-storyline. Issue #510 gets 1,431 reorders to chart at number 283, and retailers up the orders again for issue #511. Looks like an upward correction, with the "Sins Past" storyline drawing more interest than they'd originally expected. It's enough to give the book a reasonable 6-month gain, but it's still down year on year.



14. MARVEL KNIGHTS SPIDER-MAN

Aug Marvel Knights Spider-Man #5 - 75,562 ( +0.1%)

After three months of somewhat worrying drops, MARVEL KNIGHTS SPIDER-MAN suddenly levels out. In fact, it shows a very small gain. Marvel can breathe a sigh of relief - for the moment, it looks like the book has found its level.

The Avengers Disassembled crossover continues, and the book climbs for the second month running. By the way, I use the word "crossover" in the loosest imaginable sense. Despite the big "Disassembled" logo on the front cover, the actual story seems to have nothing whatsoever to do with the crossover, other than the mere fact of guest starring Captain America. Seems to be boosting sales anyway, but from what we've seen so far, readers who picked it up for the crossover tie-in could be forgiven for wondering whether they've been had.

A Marvel Age book, so it has more leeway than some.
 
ya know for everyone saying how much spectacular sucks right now(which im not loving it too much myself) It still usually beats out about 75 other comics in the top 100.
 
I'm surprised that the numbers didn't go up slightly after the movie was released.

:confused:

The movie probably affects tpb sales more and these numbers are just for comic shops, I think anyone new interested in buying comics will check bookstores and newsstands first.

Steadily and noticeably declining sales throughout the run of the symbiote arc.

also: compare

last Augusts' US-M, #45 - 100,619 ( -1.8%)

this August's:

Aug Ultimate Spider-Man #63 - 96,279 ( -2.7%)
Aug Ultimate Spider-Man #64 - 94,682 ( -1.7%)

A decline of between 4 and 6 thousand dollars between these issues spaced a year apart....

EXCELLENT! People voted with their wallets; one can ask no more.
 
the book actually increased in sales for the carnage arc though (the 6 month period figure) ;)

Sorry to burst your bubble but that's nothing unusual, every book experiences similar ups and downs.

How do you figure that? I see:

Jun Ultimate Spider-Man #61 - 101,159 ( -3.5%)
Jul Ultimate Spider-Man #62 - 98,963 ( -2.2%)
Aug Ultimate Spider-Man #63 - 96,279 ( -2.7%)

Yes, there was a surge for the first and second issues, compared to the months before. People were excited and curious. However each month decreases after that. Steady downward trend. 94 thousand is less than 101 thousand, at least at the schools I attended. :gg:

Last August the book was 102,000 copies; this August it was selling 94,000. Look at that how I might, I don't see "increase."
 
Alot of "collectors" only collect the first issue of bigtime events.

When he says "Increase" he was talking about total through the issues. If you added them up.
 
Galactus, where do you get these numbers from? Is there a site you can go to?

But you really can't blame this drop for Ultimate Carnage or whatever errors you see in Bendis' work. Sales are drifting down everywhere.


Sep Daredevil #51 - 59,636
Aug Daredevil #63 - 52,090

Aug Fantastic Four #502 - 54,084
Aug Fantastic Four #517 - 50,247

Aug Incredible Hulk #59 - 59,336

Aug Captain America #16 - 43,123
Aug Captain America #30 - 38,464

Aug Exiles #30 - 41,269
Aug Exiles #50 - 37,958

Of course there are some exceptions, a new creative team, much hyped storyline, a big event and such are things that can push sales up.

I was talking relative to the immediately previous arc. (i did point out that I was referring to the 6 month figure which was + 2.3%, heck you QUOTED the line it was in!!) The surge in sales from the start of the arc was sufficent (Jun Ultimate Spider-Man #60 - 104,789 (+16.6%) an impressive increase and the start of the carnage arc which you missed out in your post for some reason) that by the end of the arc Ult spidey will have been selling more over the course of the carnage arc than in the 6 issues previously, hence an increase in sales. Which means some people stuck around for the carnage arc.

Perhaps the schools you attend should focus a wee bit more on reading? ;)

89,000 odd vs 94000 odd (previous arc end vs latest issue of carnage arc).

Hence an increase.
