I was curious about TF comic sales as I hadn't checked them in two years. Here's what we got:

267 OPTIMUS PRIME #7 6,605
268 TRANSFORMERS LOST LIGHT #5 6,594
279 TRANSFORMERS TILL ALL ARE ONE #10 6,081

The end is nigh, folks.

Ouch.

But does that include digital sales? Because there's a lot of folks (on twitter) who grab the digital versions (especially Lost Light) the moment they go up for sale.

Yeah, if that's floppies, well, it's just an indication that floppies are dying. I'm seeing more TF fans than ever read the IDW comics, but they all come to them through the trades, hardcovers, Comixology, Humble Bundle...

We will see floppy sales #s decline more and more for every comics property. Floppies are insanely cheap to print, though. I've been predicting that most companies are going to move to trade-only arcs for 10 years now, and the declining cost of printing keeps proving me wrong.

Or have a glass full of spare change near their beds. That they don't have.

Professor and Bumblebeemususs. Someone here besides me. Whoopeeeeee! I was feeling like Desmond in the Hatch from Lost.

Yeah, just floppies here I think. Good point about the digital stuff. Thought maybe TF comic interest was waning. Hope I'm wrong.

Sometimes we just let you talk to yourself for a while to see where it goes.

As long as you're in here somewhere, Bumbleshamus.
