Batman #21 Beats Superman Unchained In This Week's Bleeding Cool Bestseller List

comics-batman-21-zero-year-artworkMeasuring actual sales to comic store customers, not orders, the Bleeding Cool Bestseller List tracks sales of comics in select stores on Wednesdays and Thursdays, measuring the purchases of those who cannot wait until the weekend to read their comics. As a result, it measures the level of desire as well as sales.

And this week, the much hyped Superman Unchained was beaten in almost every store by Batman #21, kicking off Zero Hour, even in the week of Superman Day and the release of Man Of Steel...

Still, both are by Scott Snyder, so he still wins! And using recent examples, Snyder has as many comics in the top five as Marvel has. Man of the match.
