Bleeding Cool Bestseller List – 9th March 2014 – Forever Starlight

Posted by March 9, 2014 Comment

Starlight CoverThis 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, the penultimate issue of Forever Evil rockets to the top. Launches for Moon Knight, Magneto and Starlight make it onto the top ten. And Detective Comics proves that it isn’t only the Batman monthly that has the Batchops to get onto the chart…

  1. Forever Evil #6
  2. Uncanny X-men #34
  3. Detective Comics #29
  4. Moon Knight #1
  5. Magneto #1
  6. Batman Superman Annual #1
  7. Green Lantern #29
  8. Starlight #1
  9. Wolverine & The X-Men #1
  10. Action Comics #29

Thanks to the following retailers,

And this is what they had to say,

DC owns this week with 3 of the top 10 and 6 titles overall leaving Marvel with four. Forever Evil took the top spot but surprise was Action outselling Detective.

Moon Knight killed all competition this week. I read it early and did an immediate re-order that was equal to my original order. Welcome back Mr. Ellis.

Guardians of the Galaxy is still burning up the back-issue sales. I will be surprised if i have anything left by the time the movie comes out

A strong week for new Marvel. Sold out of both Magneto and Moon Knight after what I thought was a strong order. Loki keeping up after issue #1. Happy to see Earth 2 still doing so well, especially after a writer change.

Our huge Mark Millar following made this a great week in comics. Both Starlight and Jupiters Legacy sold excellent. Magneto #1 and Moon Knight both did solid numbers and had people talking a lot. Wolverine & the X-men’s relaunch had customers scratching their heads and wondering why the hell they renumbered, and many found it a great place to jump off, rather than jump on. Forever Evil dominated all, with an action packed issue that made everyone who had been waiting for it happy.

Here in Iowa our comic shipment was stuck in Memphis for a few days so we just received our new comics today. So sadly we have no new comics sales to report for Wednesday and Thursday.

Forever Evil spoilers were very tough on our customers since they had to wait even longer to read the actual comic.

Sales surprisingly for the last few days were good even with out new comics. People picked up back issues and graded comics along with trades. Looking forward to spring!

Another disappointingly  skimpy week when it comes to the variety of stuff coming in, but then I think “Wait a minute- I planned it this way. It’s deep in a Canadian winter, and our customers aren’t fools: They know the books are going to be here, so they can wait for a warm spot in the weather- no need to rush out in the -20o cold in the hopes of snagging that elusive copy of Iron Man. We have it now, chances are we’ll still have some in a couple of weeks, so no need to rush.

Nonetheless, no matter what the weather, it’s always nice to see a new Walking Dead TPB come in. It may only be  #9 by volume, but it’s #1 in terms of bringing in the bucks.
