Hey Old Me, Current Me is buying this book. :oops:

Uncanny X-Men #1 sold 177,463.

In comparison, Amazing Spider-Ock #700, which came out 1 month before, sold 200,900

:smt102 JLA cover still had more shit on it than the bird variant.

Really, it was a bad cover.

well yeah when you have 52 different variants that can be bought in any amount you want, of course your book is gonna sell more... if it hadn't been for those variants it wouldn't have sold that amount. Every site has said that so i don't know what you are trying to get at. DC used a gimmick to sell the book...

What am I getting at ? I just re-posted some fucking stats. THAT'S WHAT THE ARTICLE I RE-POSTED THAT FROM IS SAYING.
Attack the fucking messenger why don't you
:lol:

Despite the ridicule it got it worked, at least from a marketing standpoint. You yourself also said that.
