Front Cover Art To This Year's Biggest Selling Comic Revealed

ASTERIX

Courtesy of Comics Place. The front cover art for Asterix and the Picts, out in three weeks, the first Asterix book not to be drawn by Albert Uderzo, with a print run in French alone of two million, now expected to sell out on the first week of sale.

There was a lot of fuss over Infinity #1 having a total undiscounted revenue of over a million dollars. On this one print in this one language alone, Asterix and the Picts will bring in thirty million dollars this year.

It's all a matter of scale.
