Thanks to the following retailers;

And now for some of their quotes;

It has been an amazing 8 days between the two giant Wednesdays and the always fantastic Baltimore Comic-Con. I can’t think of an 8 day window where we have amassed such gross sales, I hope it continues through the rest of the month. First 13 days we are already at 61% of SEP2012 sales.

3-D tidal wave continues to consume that comic market. Sold out of every 3-D cover this week. Mighty Avengers still out sold all the titles, but that is because i ran out of DC books.

All Guardians of the Galaxy back-issues are on the move and the Marvel Now books are now being chased after like the New 52 first issues.

Wow, a whole week of event tie-in bestsellers! While DC Villains Month continues to sell well this week, I cannot help but feel more comfortable with the strong selling Marvel titles. Marvel’s event books will continue their story in the coming months where DCs tie-ins feel inconsequential. October will most likely see a drop off on DCs sales as they move back to business as usual while Marvel should be able to sustain the same strong numbers
