X-Men Tops This Week's Bleeding Cool Bestseller List

This is the Top Ten Bleeding Cool Bestseller List, as compiled by a number of comic stores from their sales on Wednesday and Thursday. It measures what is known as the "Wednesday Warriors", those who can't wait till the weekend to get this week's comics. Though thanks to DC, Tuesday Titans too. If any other retailers would like to report their top sellers, please contact richjohnston@bleedingcool.com. Last week saw the top three sales starring Batman, but this week Marvel roars back with X-Men, Hulk Vs Thor, Moon Knight and Captain America, before DC's Jurassic League gets a look in. IDW also scores a hit with their Transformers: Last Bot Standing series.

Who had this to say…

  • Rodman Comics: X-Men of course took the top spot for us. Strong sales week. So far at least for us people are still spending like normal and do not seem affected by higher prices.
  • Ssalefish Comics: With the combined readership of both Thor and Hulk and without a major Batman title, Hulk vs Thor Banner of War took home the gold this week. Other titles on the list got the privilege of charting because they showed up on a week when not much was available to choose from. Certainly not how I would want to follow up the week after Free Comic Book Day if the goal was to cultivate new readers.
  • Graham Crackers Comics: Bit of a blah week, which makes it a perfect week to introduce a fantastic title like 8 BILLION GENIES – was really hoping to see this book rank higher, but not every manager had a chance to read it. Great concept, great execution, can't wait to read the next 7 issues! Plus easy elevator pitch, easy to sell. Way over ordered and will be glad with the number of copies we have. Jurassic League, customers were divisive in their response to the cute idea, those that did try it – really enjoyed it and understood what a fun comic can be.

Notable sales:

  • Sensational She-Hulk #1 CGC 9.6 $175
  • Captain America #117 CGC 7.5 $900
