Who had this to say…

  • Summit Comics & Games: Phantom on Scan is off to a good start although not breaking into the top ten. Challenge of the Super Sons is off to a challenging start. Batman & Scooby-Doo Mysteries is doing good for a kid's comic launch. The biggest sales miss for us this week was Home. I thought the story about a migrant child developing super powers would get more sales than it did. I'm going to chalk in Batman/Fortnite in the #1 spot for next week although I'm most interested in reading Many Death of Laila Starr.
  • Rodman Comics: Great sales week. People still have stimulus money left of are still receiving it. Batman Detective 1 took the top spot here. Sandman Locke & Key is selling solid numbers for us. Star Wars Bounty Hunters is starting to heat up with people getting excited about the upcoming Star Wars crossover featuring everyone's favorite bounty hunter.
  • Graham Crackers Comics: With a first appearance, it's no real surprise that Joker #2 took the top spot this week.

The Bleeding Cool Bestseller List returns next week. If your store would like to be involved, get in touch.
