Who had this to say for the Bestseller List…

  • Rodman Comics: Good week. People are getting stimulus money and spending with us. Death Metal 7 easily took the top spot. Marvel did not have good week sadly. Future State when first announced months ago had our customers groaning no. Now Future State is a please get this for me.
  • Ssalefish Comics: Sales this week were a lot more divided between DC and Marvel than one might think given the line-up of Future State titles in the running, but we still saw a 50/50 split with the Big 2. Dark Nights Death Metal and Future State Next Batman took the top spots, which is about what one would expect, but Star Wars High Republic managed to slide in third place, and it's in no small part due to the hype driven by fans and speculators alike. Eternals #1 might have ranked higher on the list were it not competing against the Future State line, as most of the remaining spots were filled by those titles.
  • Dr No's – Five top ten for Marvel, three for DC, and two for Image–a pretty solid split. Response was better than anticipated for Future State, but we ordered enough that we had plenty on hand to meet unanticipated demand.
