Comixology Bestseller List – 26th October 2018 – Action Comics #1004 Leaps Tall Buildings

Welcome to the Comixology Bestseller list, your guide to see how well your favorite titles are selling digitally. Every week I’ll post the ranking of every new title, plus a ranking of the best selling volumes & graphic novels. As always, I hope you find it interesting and informative.

After going six straight weeks without a Top 10 win, DC has won the last four. And now you can make it five, as DC pulls out another close victory, beating Marvel 6-4. The Bendis Superman experiment continues to yield great results for DC, and the Witching Hour crossover has put Wonder Woman in the Top 5 for the first time. Still, it’s not all great news for DC. Justice League Odyssey has taken a slip in its second month, getting passed by Detective Comics, X-Men Red and The Flash. Not a cause for alarm yet, but how far will it fall before it finds a stable audience? The Terrifics and Catwoman were able to find that sweet spot, so Odyssey should be able to as well.

Tom Taylor’s X-Men Red hit No. 6 on the list upon news it was ending soon, and I have just one question: Why? Why would Marvel cancel such a successful ongoing series in less than a year? Did Jean Grey send out a late night Ambien tweet?

Unfortunately, by directive of the Marvel suits, all X-Men series with colors in their name must be purged to make way for Uncanny X-Men, thus ending the Rainbow Era of X-Men (2017-2018). So even though Red was doing better than Blue & Gold, both on the Diamond and Comixology lists, it won’t get spared the axe. So, we pay our respects to X-Men Red, one of Marvel’s best digital performers, cut down in its prime.

See, this is a big difference between comics and television. Comic companies have no trouble stealth cancelling titles for any reason, but network heads will try to keep a successful series going for as long as possible. Airwolf kept going, even after the show killed off the entire cast and production lost the helicopter. And it was a show about a helicopter!

Personally, I just hate to see another X-Men team break up so soon like this. That said, I am now taking wagers how long Uncanny X-Men will last. Over/Under is the next Olympics.

Spider-Gwen got a nice double-digit boost in its new Ghost Spider incarnation (which disappointingly does not include Gwen Stacey with a flaming skull delivering vengeance and puns upon evildoers). Spider-Geddon is not only doing its job by being a great selling title (No. 7 this week), but by raising the profile of other Spider books. In this regard, The Witching Hour and Spider-Geddon are examples of events/crossovers done right. Take notice, industry.
