I think the dollar share reversal back to Marvel probably will occur this month.
I would think so. DC was so far behind Marvel in that regard, though, it'll be interesting to see how far back they slip.

Re: DC's New 52: Reviews and Discussion (Spoilers welcolme and likely)

I just re-read "Teen Titans" again am not really sure what to make of the book. A part of me wants to like it, the other part doesn't. Also is it just me or did it seem like Cassie was introduced to be Tim's potential love interest? Superboy (I guess I can't call him Connor yet since technically he has no name other than "Superboy" and that's only because Project NoWhere calls him that) seems to have Caitlin Fairchild as his potential new love interest. These kinds of shipper thoughts are the only reason why I would continue reading the book.

I'm not reading Titans but I'll keep following Superboy for at least a couple of months because Fairchild is in it.

Disappointing that Swamp Thing/Animal Man/Stormwatch/DemonKnights/IVampire didn't make it to the Top 20.

Still I'm glad Batwoman/Batgirl/WW made it to the top.

Marvel can't be happy that Ultimate Spider-Man with the introduction of Miles only ranked 9th. OTOH it's being well-received and they're in it for the long haul.

Fairchild was in Teen Titans #1. Superboy and Teen Titans both ended in the same place.

Thanks. I'm reading Superboy for now but I'm not interested in Titans.

I've been palming every face I can find as a result of seeing the new Perry White.

So, Perry's been working out.

He looks pretty good, really. I mean, how old is the guy supposed to be, anyway?

What I'd like to see is him lighting up a cigar somewhere - in his car, on the sidewalk - just can't wait to get out of the building so that he can have some nicotine. Because if Superman's Earth is anything like ours, there's nowhere in the new Planet building where smoking is permitted - certainly not in his office.

God, I hope that's not part of Marvel's marketing strategy! "Free digital comic, just in case, you know, your house burns down, mysteriously. Or something. 'Nuff said."

I'm not keen on Perry's redesign. To me, he has a strong resemblance to how Marvel generally draws Nick Fury.



No, the other one.



Yeah, that one.

It's not a deal-breaker, of course. It is just that when I first saw NuPerry, I thought "Nick Fury got his eye back and now runs the Daily Planet. Wow, DC really is trying out new things!"

Batman is the base at 100, OMAC sold just under a fifth of the base. Once we know what Batman actually sold (nobody has worked it out yet), we will know what the other comics sold.

So if Batman sold 200,000 issues and a comic is 50 of base, it sold 100,000 issues.
