Herald you're comparing sales from when the new 52 started to what....issues 13 right now?

Find me one modern day mainstream book that has retained even 90% of its issue 1 readership after over a dozen issues. The only way they ever get back to that level is via event tie-ins regardless of the quality.

You're clutching at straws man.

Thanks for systematically proving yourself wrong, though! :lol:

Yes he will because no one is going to let an ass like you to win.

Bottom line: DC is selling more comics stil than they were before the reboot. In addition, the industry as a whole is selling more comics. Herald is a lunatic.

Nope. The comparison that Jude first mentioned was DC's sales posted in the OP versus DC's sales of last December.

Our lesson for today, kids: Don't jump in and support someone without getting all the facts first! :P :lol:

You're the one doing that, pal, if you think this "Find me one..." spiel is going to win you back this argument.

The fact remains that Jude tried to argue that DC was selling more with this month's numbers versus last December. And even HIS math proved him wrong! Moreover, as YOU just admitted, you don't even know what's going on! Thank you BOTH for proving how clueless you two are!! :P :lol:

Man, this reminds me of Bugs Bunny's advice: "Remember that your enemies have TAPIOCA for brains!" :lol:

Herald you're making it sound like Marvel decimated DC in sales and its all over for 'Dan and the Gang'.

Because that's what your delusions want to believe.

Again: The criteria YOU initially set is THIS report's sales versus LAST DECEMBER'S sales.

Again: Your claim was that the sales have INcreased during that time period.

Again: Both BlueMole's post AND your own calculations show that, contrary to your claim, the numbers are DOWN.

Again: You and Fieldy (and now possibly Bk; I was hoping someone would be the THIRD Stooge! :-D) are blind to these facts because you're so utterly desperate to see ol' Herald be wrong. Too bad I'm not! 8)

THAT is the bottom line.

No bottom line is that you are an asshole, Herald.

That's not the comparison you initially set.
Therefore, your question is irrelevant.

Herald even I know DC is selling more books than they did before the reboot. However, Marvel upped their game and thus we're benefitting from it. The only reasons the numbers are down is because Marvel has a larger number now. It's just the usual game they've played. Of anything DC can do, Marvel will do better job at it.
