>Not a single Now! Again! book made our top ten. Champions #1 was closest but also sold just as well as Future Quest. Jessica Jones had strong numbers but not enough for a top ten spot.
Best debut of the week (in a week of many, many #1s) goes to Moonshine. I personally could not be more thrilled to have a new Risso/Azzarello book. I only fear shipping delays hurting single issue sales (*cough* Bitch Planet *cough*.) Worst debut would go to Shade, The Changing Girl. Not very encouraging if DC is wanting Young Animal to be the next Vertigo.
>We had an abbreviated sales week so far because of Hurricane Matthew shutting us down for Thursday and Friday here at Famous Faces & Funnies in Melbourne, FL, but luckily we didn’t see any real damage, so we’re incredibly thankful for that. It’s unfortunate that we had to close a few days on such a giant sales week and the start of Marvel NOW, so we hope to sell more of this week’s books to our Thursday and Friday regulars next week.
>So far we’ve sold a decent amount of some of the new Marvel books, including Death of X 1 at sales position 6 for us and Champions 1 at position 11. Nightwing has definitely picked up with that Monster Man crossover (I’m still not a fan of that arc), and Walking Dead has been great as always and is our 4th bestseller so far. Paper Girls, Cannibal, and Shade: The Changing Girl are our other bestselling indy books this week. I haven’t seen any new faces come in for any of the new Marvel NOW stuff just yet, so I hope they’ll do some advertising outside of this industry, but I’m not holding my breath.
>We are still selling a lot of Walking Dead and Saga back issues. Still moving lots of Rebirth runs and other older Uncanny X-Men and Amazing Spider-Man issues. Not any major issues, just a few issues here and there. Decent amount of interest in All New Ghost Rider with Robbie Reyes’ SHIELD appearances as well.
