Yeah, I've noticed this too... and its ridiculous, as AHM is just a big frustrating mess. Maybe he's off his face. I never really had him down as Mr. rubber stamp of credibility anyway, as I know nothing about him. Although, I've never seen "The Boys" in his buy pile... So I'd say... odds on he doe...

In other news, total copies of Max Dinobots printed=5,318 It's my understanding that those numbers mean precisely this. They're books ordered by shops, not sold to customers. More precisely, The shops order an amount from their suppliers (wholesalers), who then order the combined amounts from all t...

Yeah, that's what I thought too.

Issue 11: The Autobots talk on Cybertron! One of them may punch a senior officer!

Meanwhile, on Earth, the Decepticons are there!

And as for the humans, see the exciting culmination of the 'no honey for my tea' plot.

Do we know how those are calculated though?

Are they returnable to the distributor/company?

And apparently, most of the TF comic stuff is sold through non-Diamond channels. According to IDW, they moved thousands of units through these channels. As far as we know those were movie trades in places such as Wal-Mart. Helps the bottom line lots but doesn't help get singles on store shelves. Wh...

IDW are in a better position than most, as their books are already at a higher tag. However, I doubt that we will still be paying 3.99 for IDW books by the end of the year. I'd place money on a price-hike by Christmas. Also, IDW also gets a bit of leeway as a larger publisher, from my understanding....

Here's to hoping it had something to do with bad distribution and not fan interest. We've seen the whole time that there's a section of the readership who are ONLY interested in a core title. These people bought the -Ations, but seemingly never bought a single Spotlight. They number about 2-3k. It ...

I don't mind the movie comic – it is harmless fun – though I'm not surprised to hear the Animated comic has folded. Magazine publishing is really in decline at the moment. The movie comic had a blockbuster film to support it, Animated has a little seen cartoon. I've not even seen it yet. Last sales...

So, from that I got "In AHM 8 we'll find out Drift is the traitor and Spotlight: Drift will show how he tried to off Prime." Optimus tried to pass the Matrix onto Drift, but Drift couldn't take it, as the slot for that was already occupied with more swords. Then Megatron nabbed the Matrix from Drif...

Sprunkner, you'll love this one. First an intro: on the IDW boards, Skwege has a lackey: Dogbite12. Whenever Skwege posts something that is possibly confrontational (IE quite often) a post by Dogbite12 backing him up will appear, ALWAYS, within 5 minutes of Skwege's post. What are the odds of that? ...

Come to think of it, the best move IDW could have made was to continue where DW left off, with McDonough on the ongoing present and Furman on the ongoing past. Sounds crazy, but that "getting slighted" feeling by fans would not have been a factor, and sales could have possibly continued in the 20,0...

C-Display is the most commonly used.

Alternatively, you can unzip the file like you would a normal .rar file, and then just read each page as an individual JPEG.

Not everyone is as hardcore a fan as we are.

Isn't Fables on Vertigo? And therefore, technically, DC? It's listed on sales charts as by DC. And all of the titles BF mentioned outperform AHM (although Invincible barely).

'Bout 90% sure. Yeah, definitely. And Boosts, too. Or are they just an Australian thing? And agreed Jack, that little bald guy had better be in the movie, though I can't for the life of me think of his name. Can't say I like Boosts. Love Cadbury Whips, but they're hard to get for some reason.
