Which is probably why comics don't really see a big sale spikes when a film comes out.
Depends on the comics in question. The Batman comics got a huge boost from the movie in 1989. Since then superhero comics in the regular DC or Marvel shared universes haven't seen much of a sales boost when movies come out, but comics that are standalones can still get huge sales boosts from films. The Scott Pilgrim books, the Sin City books, Watchmen, and 300, for example, sold in massive numbers when their respective movies were released. So even movies that underperform at the box office, such as Scott Pilgrim vs. the World and Watchmen, can drive book sales way above their usual level.
