Fantastic Four #5 Tops Comixology Bestseller List 28th December 2018

Matthew Snyder writes,

Welcome to the Comixology Bestseller list, your guide to see how well your favorite titles are selling digitally. Every week I'll post the ranking of every new title, plus a ranking of the best selling volumes & graphic novels. As always, I hope you find it interesting and informative.

Looks like I'm not the only one that still has a Christmas hangover, as the entire comics books industry decided to release a grand total of 12 new issues this week. Seriously, Heavy Metal put out more comics than DC on this Boxing Day.

And I must say, what a sad way to end 2018. I wanted a huge Marvel vs. DC showdown to wrap up the year. While I'm confident the 61-page Fantastic Four #5 would've taken the top spot over Action Comics (based on recent history), I wished to see how well Superior Spider-Man and X-Force would debut under normal conditions. But at the end of the day, I can't complain if the industry wants to a take a vacation. We're all entitled to one.

And look, there's a massive sale from the Big 2 and Image to end the year. So I suggest you do what I do during my little winter stay-cay: kick back, relax, read some cheap digital comics, and then binge-watch Parks and Recreation while you have some leftover ham and eggnog.

Happy Holidays, everyone.
