Alright, I'll make the changes. Are we counting Red She-Hulk as Hulk, since it continued the numbering?

I'm counting them (Daredevil is actually part of Marvel NOW and Hawkeye has the NOW imprint so we're all counting them for good measure). It doesn't matter what you think!

Okay so stats so far:
The top five pickups are:
1. Uncanny Avengers
2. Indestructible Hulk
3. New Avengers
4. Avengers
5. Thor: God of Thunder

I'd say Indestructible Hulk is the most popular book though simply because Uncanny Avengers has more current drops. Uncanny Avengers and Iron Man have the top current drops with 4 and 3 respectively. The majority of titles have 1 or 2 current drops. (Current drops means it was bought during or after the event launch and subsequently dropped).

A lot of people were reading Captain America, Hawkeye, Uncanny X-Force and Daredevil heading into the event (6 for the first two, 5 for the last two). Iron Man and FF had the most people drop out before the event (3 a piece).

As for the book that no one was interested in: A+X. :lol:

Thanks to everyone who's completed the survey so far. I still want more data and I know a lot of people haven't filled this out. I'd like to close up the results by mid-March so I'm going to officially leave this open until March 15th. In the meantime, if anything changes for anyone (i.e. you drop something or start picking something up), please let me know either in the thread or via PM.

Thanks,
Keb

It would be easier to fill this out if the OP contained a list of Marvel NOW! books to choose from.
