Civil War II #1 Sold Over 425,000 To Comic Book Shops

Civil_War_II_1_CoverStar Wars #1 may have sold a million copies for Marvel Comics a year-and-a-half ago.

But that included a close-to-half-a-million copies of a Loot Crate variant copy.

The final numbers of the $4.99 Civil War II #1 were announced by Marvel during the Retailer Lunch at San Diego Comic-Con at 425,000, while they distributed half a million copies of Civil War II #0 for free for Free Comic Book Day.

Despite all that, they have still solicited a second print. Maybe they are trying to get closer to that cool half a million…
