Bleeding Cool Bestseller Chart – 28th Dec 2013 – DC Knocks Out Marvel

JL26_52b09eaa276022.56298684This is the Top Ten Bleeding Cool Bestseller List, as compiled by a number of comic stores from their sales on Wednesday and Thursday. It measures what are known as the “Wednesday Warriors”, those who can’t wait to the weekend to get this week’s comics. We salute you, and the keenness you bring to your passion.

And this week, there were… let’s say… fewer titles than usual. So all manner of comics got into the top ten. But it’s worth noting that both DC titles beat out the launch of Wolverine’s Origin II and the launch of All New Marvel NOW.

  1. Justice League #26
  2. Forever Evil #4
  3. Avengers #24.NOW
  4. Origin II #1
  5. Saviors #1
  6. Dr Who Special 2013 #1
  7. Batman #26
  8. Robotech/Voltron #1
  9. Deceivers #1
  10. Harley Quinn #1

Thanks to the following retailers,

And this is what they had to say.

With such a small number of new books this week, we had a number of older comics make it into the top 10.

Week was steady even with so few titles out. Extras that i have on hand will be bought up in next couple weeks when people come back from the holidays. Expecting better sales next week with more to choose from.

Batman, Batman and more Batman. Seems to be the only thing people want when it comes to their back-issues.

With a handful of titles, not enough to fill our top ten this week, we still managed to do well.

should be an interesting top 10 list this week – can’t wait to see how this all pans out.

It was a week of HOLIDAY BUYING and GIFT CARD redemption – which equates to people trying things they wouldn’t normally pick up.

Nothing else charted above 3 copies, so their sales numbers really aren’t indicative of anything. Plus a lot of regulars took the week off. Lots of Doctor Who Annuals sitting in folders. Still a good week of sales. Lots of toys & graphic novels heading out the door.
