X-Men #1 The Guinness World Record Best Selling Comic Of All Time?

Posted by July 22, 2010 Comment

That’s what Marvel are announcing. X-Men #1, selling around seven million dollars, back in the early nineties.Five covers. The comic advertisements sent to retailers asking “that Porsche you always wanted” And now a toilet.

But today at San Diego Comic Con, Marvel  received the Guinness World Record for the highest selling single comic book.

But I’m wondering. Can’t Asterix volumes sell millions of copies?

In related news. Chris Claremont and artist Jim Lee then later appeared at the DC booth with Rob Liefeld…

I want to look at that award more carefully…
