ComiXology Sales This Week – Saga Rules The World

Louis Falcetti looks at the in-App iTunes ComiXology statistics for sales… around the world!

This week’s comiXology charts are much more interesting than they’ve been in the past. Why is that you probably ask. Well allow me to probably answer you. There was a time not too long ago when a new issue of The Walking Dead was enough to knock the Earth off it’s axis, sales wise. But this week’s chart shows that Kirkman’s death drama’s strangehold might be finally loosening its corpsified grip. In Great Britain as well as Australia and Japan we see Batman #14 taking the top slot, while The Walking Dead #104 still manages to rule the roost in Canada, U.S.A., France, Spain, Mexico, Brazil, Russia, Greece, Germany, Ireland, Israel, Sweden and Norway. So, it’s not like the book is suddenly doing bad, it’s just surprising to see it losing out in Great Britain, though from Judge Dredd to Maggie Thatcher to Batman, Britain certainly does like a fascist. Hey Bendis, if you’re planning on vacationing, check out the Philippines, ’cause they love ya this week, giving All New X-Men #1  top honors. Garth Ennis’ big and bloody The Boys comes in at number one in Italy and China with #72, it’s final, wonderful issue. ::Single Tear:: India may have showered love upon BKV & Fiona Staples’ Saga #7, but man if that book doesn’t rule the world right now, showing up on every single country chart with the exception of China, Japan and Greece. So what is Japan loving instead? Like you had to ask. IT’S ALWAYS LIL’ BATMAN. For like the thousandth (estimate) week in a row, Lil Batman #1 charts in Japan.

What’s particularly interesting and worth comparing to the brick & mortar sales charts when those are available, is the Marvel Now’s campaign and it’s failure (at least digitally) to make the numbers like they’ve been hoping. For indeed, Marvel Now titles made up 4 spots on the charts of Great Britain, U.S.A., France and Brazil, yet none of their books took top spot. Meanwhile in other countries they had a decent showing in Canada, Philippines, Ireland, Sweden and Norway holding on to 3 spots, but other than that they only find 1 spot on the charts of Australia, Spain, Italy, India, Greece, and Germany, with 2 spots in Japan and 0 spots in China. A far cry from weeks when we’ve seen DC 52 books holding on to 5 or more spots around the globe. Again, this is just digital comixology sales, and no one has said anything bad about Marvel or any of the creative teams on Hawkeye or Spiderman, so Steve, relax. :-)
