State of the Industry – March 2016

2016 continues to show that successful comic book movies do not necessarily spark any interest in the comic books they are derived from, as the third month of the year continued a downward trend in sales figures. Only three titles rose above that all-so-important 100k mark in March, with Marvel maintaining dominance. Of the top Read More

Hoping for a strong opening to the New Year, the top 300 list from Diamond Comics gave the impression of increases, though sales dipped overall. The top ten saw an increase to eight Read More

The Suicide Squad – Legends

LEGENDS, the six-issue series printed in 1987 from DC Comics, was the essential sequel to the world-changing CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS. It was meant to be a reintroduction to the DC Universe as well as a stand alone series that might be a primer to the characters and groups DC was publishing at the time. Read More
