Pocket God #1 Sells 150,000 In Digital, Less Than 1000 In Print

We’ve been told of late that digital comics sell much less than print copies. One retailer at the DC summits of late reported that DC sold 650 print copies of a comic for every digital title. Mark Millar has pointed out that his annual digital royalties on all his comics are less than he was paid to write one issue of Superman Adventures years ago.

But Ape Entertainment have had a different experience with their Pocket God comic. Admittedly, that it’s based on an insanely successful downloadable game has given them access to a new audience. But tehy’ve sold 150,000 copies digitally but less than a thiusand in print.

Selling one hundred and fifty copies of each digital issue for every print issue you sell seems like it must be some sort of record.

And may make the print issue a little more collectable. Just saying.

Here is Ape Entertainment’s stall at San Diego Comic Con, booth number 1804. I just picked up a Strawberry Shortcake comic for my girls…
