Uncanny Avengers #1 Will NOT Beat Walking Dead #100

We won’t know the figures for another month. But I’m told from good sources that, against expectations, Uncanny Avengers #1 did not actually beat the sales figures for Walking Dead #100.

At one point it was looking that way, based on early orders from certain big stores. But overall, now that shop orders across the country are in and fixed, that’s no longer the case. It’s still well over 300,000, but it’s not enough to hit Walking Dead #100’s 380,000, let alone the 400,000 they were pitching for.

That’s despite nineteen covers and discount deals for stores who massively increased their orders so that it basically paid the retailer to order them, even if they don’t sell them all.
