Along with Dark Horse and Scholastic, Image Comics continues to show people that comic books aren’t all spandex, nostalgia, and T&A.
With six of the top ten (seven if you count Top Cow) Image Comics, once again, dominated the Paperback Graphic Books section of the New York Times Best Sellers List. Even counting Dark Horse’s Avatar, The Last Airbender and Scholastic’s (seriously, Scholastic sold more of a trade than Marvel or DC) Smile, the lack of super-hero books on this list is startling, interesting, and refreshing. Of course the various fanboys will somehow use this to show how DC and Marvel are doing better than Image at bringing in new readers along with some sort of internet study that shows that these new readers read more single issues than trades and that just because there are numbers showing that this is not the case we should not be so dependent on such bourgeois ideas as quantitative stats.
Marvel Zombie / DC WhateverThoseFanboysAreCalled: Shut Up!
Good job Image (and Scholastic) on your domination of a list. We know that feels good.
