All week I was anticipating the clash of the big event books: Metal vs. Doomsday. I wondered which one would take No. 1. So imagine my surprise when the results came in, and Saga #50 was at the top.

Saga #50 beating Metal and Doomsday is an even bigger surprise when you consider the monthly shipping numbers in January. Doomsday Clock #3 was ranked No. 1 Close behind was Dark Knights: Metal #5.

And where did Saga #50 land in February? It ranked 37th.

The Terrifics has slipped but still remains in the top 10, beating The Flash, Hal Jordan and Wonder Woman. Will it remain a top 10 mainstay like those titles? At the very least, it has been the most successful of the DC New Age of Heroes this far, as we can see from the new title rankings from the last few months:

Damage:
January 17: #15
February 21: #28
March 21: #26

The Silencer:
January 31: #15 (5th Wednesday)
February 28: #27
March 28: #26

Sideways:
February 14: #20
March 14: #23

The Terrifics:
February 28: #2
March 28: #6

-The Marvel sales chaos continues. The pattern has now become clear: new digital volume releases when are listed as $1 on Comixology before going up in price after a set amount of time. (These volumes are listed as full price on the Marvel app). It certainly is a bold strategy selling your new volumes for only a buck. How long will it go on for? Tune in next week to find out.
