Who had this to say…

  • Rodman Comics: This week was an incredibly slow week for sales. Amazing took the top spot. Hoping the slower than usually January sales are because of the very cold weather we had. The Scottie Young cover really helped sales for Ben Reilly 1 and She-Hulk 1. His covers are so popular people just leave the other covers on the shelf.
  • Ssalefish Comics:  Amazing Spider-Man was the winner this week but Detective sold a lot more than any previous issue recently and I have no answer for it. Batman the Knight is a high quality looking book and sold great at the #3 spot.
  • Graham Crackers: She-Hulk definitely would have been number one if it wasn't for Hulk #3 being a spec book. Marvel pretty much dominated this week. The one new Batman wasn't even close to making the top 10 for us.
