This took a little longer than I thought but it was entirely predictable.
If dc opts to go back to the way things were it would be another huge event. Please let this be so

Vertigo Bodewell should be the name of a new columnist.

Except, of course, for the USA and China, which are the highest sellers. :P

No, I'm using actual sales numbers to chide you about one of your posts, about DC "riding high" due to the DCnU.

I'm glad that you finally learned how to read a sales report, though. :P

But you do realize that there are no hard numbers here, right? It is just a ranking showing Marvel sold more. But compared to last year, the industry as a whole soles MORE comics, so in terms of actual book sales, DC is selling as many if not more books than last December.

As the resident sales expert on the site, I can indeed confirm that, based on a top ten filled with marvel comics employing the same tactic that DC used a year ago, DC is no longer riding high and is now on the verge of financial ruin. My inside source at DC (Rich Johnston in a wig and fake mustache) has told me that based on this top ten chart, WB execs showed up at Dan Didio's office an hour ago with a tanto and encouraged him to commit seppuku as there's no way that DC can recover from this staggering, not at all inflated, blow to their market share.

This seems to coincide with the death poem just published on Didio's facebook page. It reads:

Softly falls the New 52's sales.
Like a freshly fallen mountain snow.
Shame covers my bald head,
Much like Marvel's books covers the Top Ten chart.
Because of Marvel NOW!, I am Didio no more.
