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.

Is DC selling more comics now than before the reboot?


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.

"Before the reboot" is not the issue here.
"Last December" is the issue here.

Nah, DC's numbers are down because, as someone mentioned earlier, the "new car smell" is wearing off the DCnU. Ultimately, those initial high numbers were simply unsustainable. Marvel could have just kept moving on with Amazing Spidey #701, etc., and DC's numbers would still be down versus last December.

Good to know that Dan's poetry is as piss-poor as his prose writing. :P :P

It's also irrelevant to the argument.

That said, considering that you're not even trying to argue Jude's ill-considered point, you're smarter than your compatriots.


I'd trust anything Jude say over a closed-minded simpleton like you, Herald.

Holy fuck dude. Let me recap for you:

Jude: Hey, here's a joke article that's ridiculous.

Herald: NO! DC SUX AND DAN DIDIO SHOuLD BE FIRED, THEY ARE DYING!

Jude: Sales are up this November compared to last November (might have said December by mistake). DC is likely selling the same or more books.

Jude: Here, let me do a comparison with math.

Jude: Hmm, the results show that DC's sales have dropped compared to November last year, but are still higher than DC pre-reboot.

Herald: NOO!OO!!!! YOU SAID DECEMBER!!! BRRRAAARRRGGGHHHH!!!

You're fucking unhinged, dude.
