ComiXology Bestseller List, 25th June 2019 – DC Comics’ Record for the Biggest Choke Job in History

Posted by June 25, 2019 Comment

Each week, Matthew Snyder looks at the bestselling digital comic books of the week. It was missing this last Friday though, today, Matthew elaborates upon it all. He writes; 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.

Yes, I know. I’m very late, but it wasn’t my fault, I swear. The ComiXology website didn’t update all week, putting me in a bind. And it’s a shame, too. I had many jokes that were pretty topical last week. Very witty and up to date. You would’ve laughed your ass off. But because of the delay, I can’t even share them.

Oh, what could’ve been. A producer could’ve seen those jokes and recruited me for a new political comedy on ABC. The other writers in the room would’ve looked down on my lack of tv experience but I would win them over with my charm. The show would get cancelled after 2 seasons because it was too highbrow for network tv, but the prestige of the show allows me to get funding for an indie film I’m writing and directing. The script finds its way to Scarlett Johansson, who likes it and wants to work on a low stakes film after the stressful divorce with Colin Jost. She doesn’t think much of me at first, but she’s quickly won over by my quirky sense of humor and compassionate nature. We start dating around the time my film becomes the surprise hit of 2023, and we soon marry. I win 6 Oscars in my lifetime: 4 for screenwriting and 2 for directing, with my wife ScarJo by my side congratulating me each time. (Not to mention the 7 Emmys I win as the showrunner for HBO’s adaptation of Fables.)

But now that can never be. Thanks a lot, ComiXology .

Where was I? Oh yeah, what I’m supposed to be writing about: Digital sales. Batman and Justice League took the top two spots, and DC got some serious reinforcement in Frank Miller. People must love reading Superman’s origin story a million times, because Superman: Year One landed at No. 3. My God, there’s no way DC can lose this, but for the sake of tradition, let’s look at the Top 10 score:

Marvel: 28

DC: 27

Somebody call the Atlanta Falcons, because DC Comics now holds the record for the biggest choke job in history. At least the Falcons were up against Tom Brady. Who were you up against, DC? Akira Yoshida?

But I’m really happy for Marvel. Early last year they couldn’t win any Top 10 battles. Now they’re winning them by slim margins every third week. And if that sounds snarky and condescending….. well it is. But progress is still progress. Every ongoing title in the Top 10 is an improvement over their previous incarnation, some of them by an average of double digits. Even the biggest Marvel critic has to admit that’s impressive.

Now when the inevitable relaunch comes, it won’t be due to desperation. (Sorry, I can’t turn off the snark.)
