Bleeding Cool Bestseller List – 26th July 2015 – Old Man Fight Club

STK677855 (1)

This is the Top Ten Bleeding Cool Bestseller List, as compiled by a number of comic stores from their sales on Wednesday and Thursday. It measures what are known as the "Wednesday Warriors", those who can't wait to the weekend to get this week's comics. We salute you, and the keenness you bring to your passion.

Old Man Logan may not remember what he's meant to know from one issue to the next. But that doesn't stop him from topping the charts, even as Fight Club 2 nips at his adamantium heels…

  • 1. Old Man Logan #3
  • 2. Fight Club 2 #3
  • 3. Cyborg #1
  • 4. Kanan #4
  • 5. Future Imperfect #3
  • 6. Star-Lord & Kitty Pryde #1
  • 7. Uncanny X-Men #35
  • 8. Flash #42
  • 9. Deathstroke #8
  • 10. We Are Robin #2

Thanks to the following retailers,

Who had this to say,

Pretty light week this week, but Marvel still came out on top with Old Man Logan. Fight Club 2 seems to be slipping a little, and Kanan still can't hold a candle to the other Star Wars books Marvel is putting out. Great to see Birthright and Wolf make our top ten. It's seeming more and more like Image is quickly becoming the company to beat.

Fight Club has done it again by kicking the crap out of a Old Man and a young Padawan this time around.Goes to show that good writing can sell a book and not a re-boot every 20-40 issues.

Spawn was the back-issue mover again. It seems to be a seasonal thing in which half a long box of back-issues are filled into people's collections

Not a strong week overall–only the first four books would have even made the bottom of last week's Top Ten.

Strong interest in the Flash–both Silver Age and pre-New 52. Solid sales on classic 1990s Avengers, Captain America, and Iron Man as well, as customers seem interested in the classic versions of the character they know.

Surprisingly good week. Best week for new comics out of the whole month so far with out any big super popular titles out this week.

Oof. Light week. No Superman or Batman main books. Secret Wars is starting to sputter without the main series coming out to keep interest up.

Decent sales for a week with very few heavy hitters. This is for sure our first week with a tpb in the top ten.

Old Man Logan tops our list. Hard to beat that combination of writer, artist and character. Anything with "Uncanny" in the title sells well for us.

A new issue of Buffy will always be in our top ten. With that and Fight Club 2 bringing non-comic readers in, Dark Horse had a very good week.

All New Hawkeye is selling well below the previous series but still enough make the list.
Poor DC, just Flash and Grayson make the list with Fables outselling both.

Flashpoint and tie-in trades are moving a lot lately. Selling a lot Lemire's Green Arrow but Valiant books are just collecting dust.
Lots of folks wanting Y, the Last Man and Runaways. Plenty of Ex Machina still on the shelves however…

This was the most boring week ever in our 6 years for new issues.  Fight Club takes the #1 spot.  Walking Dead #144 continues to own the last two weeks in overall sales both in store and online sales.  Ant-man had zero impact on sales and we saw a bigger demand for trades and back issues from the 60's and 70's.   Previewing next week it could be the same so we are re-designing the store for a retro comic book look for next weeks Wednesday Warrior day.
