Entertainment Weekly cites a 350,000 first print run for the first volume of Twilight Manga. For the US sudience, this is big news. Outperforming anything at Marvel or DC. Peanuts compared to the seven-figure-selling Asterix, mind. But will there be a fly in the ointment as far as Twilight Manga taking the No. 1 English language comic this year?
Frankly very possibly. Because Michael Jackson's Fated from Liquid Comics is still on the horizon. And the intense curiosity from the media and [public regarding Jackson, so many months after his death, could make for a massive smash, a comic book actually written by Mr Shimone himself…
Place your bets anyone?
2010 will bring such fun! Hee hee!
