Bleeding Cool Bestseller List 26th May 2014 – Eventually Forever Evil


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…

Batman Eternal loses its regular top spot, with the eventness of Forever Evil, Amazing Spider-Man and Original Sin beating it out. But DC get half the top ten, with Image getting as many books as Marvel. And a first appearance on the chart from an IDW book…

  1. Forever Evil #7
  2. Amazing Spider-Man #2
  3. Original Sin #2
  4. Justice League #30
  5. Batman Eternal #7
  6. Saga #19
  7. Futures End #3
  8. JLA #14
  9. East Of West #12
  10. TMNT 30th Anniversary

Thanks to the following retailers,

And here's what they had to say…

What a week in comics! Forever Evil #7 FINALLY came out and luckily it lived up to the hype and more! Suddenly everyone just wants more Lex Luthor. Justice Leagues sales almost doubled for this issue too. Original Sin did well, but paled in comparison. Great to see Saga back, it sold awesome and people were very happy to see it. Millar & Fegredo's MPH #1 found it's way into the top ten in our shop, which is a pretty big deal in a week with so many great books from the big two.

While not the top among the swath of event books, Batman Eternal is still holding strong. People love their Batman. Solid solid week of books.

Great week for books. Sold out of a lot of titles, so it is great to see all the blank spots on the shelves. TMNT 30th Anniversary special was the big seller, It helps when you have the best exclusive cover for the book

Anything DC and with the word Justice sold well this week. Superior Spider-Man back-issues still moving in droves and i expect that Guardians of the Galaxy will pick up in the next week with the new trailer released.

Great sales these last two days. Amazing Spiderman has some carry over from his new first issue. DC owns the week though with the final issue of Forever Evil coming out along with Justice League. Batman Eternal and Futures End are bringing in customers on a weekly basis which is great. Saga really fell short this week oddly enough.

Last years Villains Month 3D covers are seeing some love with hype building on this years 3D covers. Been telling people as of now there is nothing in place that would allow Marvel to reprint or collect Dark Horse's Star Wars material so it might be a good time to buy before the material starts going through the roof with next years Star Wars movie.
