These are some scary numbers. Initially, it was reported that DC was the winner for october, outpacing marvel in market and dollar share. However, after reading this I have realized that was a very superficial win.

3/4th's of the titles are selling less than they did a year ago, and nearly all wildstorm titles are getting destroyed (even Ex machina is in decline).

And I know the whole "they (wildstorm titles) sell well in trade" excuse, and I still think those drops are alarming. Wildstorm titles should sell at least generally well in singles.

Pay particular attention to those flash numbers. That really came back and kicked DC in the nuts.

"Sales are entering a decline. Nonetheless, The Boys keeps outselling everything Vertigo or WildStorm have produced of late by a wide margin."

Heh, heh, heh...

I should also add that I meant Vertigo Titles as well wildstorm titles in my first post. Both imprints seem to be having some serious......issues.........punny

Well, the current run on Flash is a fucking war crime. Absolutely terrible. The lower it goes, the sooner they abandon this atrocity.

Ah.. but will they kill off Wally, bring back Bary and recontinue from FMA #14 and claim it was all part of their plan?

That is the question.
