I've been hearing a lot of anecdotal accounts of SHE-HULK #15 (the first part of our PLANET WITHOUT A HULK arc) selling out. Next time you guys are at your local comic shop, can you see if they still have copies of #15 left? It would be a big help if you could post your findings (even if it isn't sold out) and where your shop's located.

Sydney: #15 sold out from the store I go to (one of two in the CBD). I believe there were a couple left last week, but when I picked up this week's haul on Friday the She-Hulk spot on the shelves was back to leftover #14s (they got a huge load of #14, so there's still some left).
Speaking of issue #15, I was having a look at the January sales chart on Newsarama here - I don't really know how to read the figures, but an 'index' of 38.07 for #15 is a jump for She-Hulk, isn't it?
I've got 1 copy left in Fremantle, Western Australia. Having said that though, I am a fan so I order more She-Hulk than I need. (My one indulgent non-sensible business practice) .
I've have had one person buy it and add it to their pull list because of it. Doesn't sound like a lot I know, but I only have a handful of customers with pull-lists.
If there is a big demand for this issue, I may try to sell a batch of my extra copies on ebay later this week.
(One more thing. In the Fem Four fanfic, She-Hulk now has the code name "Liberty." I wasn't thinking of the comic book shop when I suggested it...)
Calgary, up here in Canada. I had to go to two local shops today to get all the books, and I took a peak at both.
One had four issues left and one had one issue. So not completely sold-out, but fairly close.
I'm in Northern New Jersey, and have been to three different comic shops around the area over the past week or so, and none of them have a copy of it. Will continue to look forward to reading it, and keep up the incredible work.
"There's a great play called 'Humulus The Mute' written by these two French authors, and it's about a dumb boy who is granted a wish that he can say one word every year -- and he falls in love with a girl he sees riding a bicycle. At the end of the play, he saves up his words for years not saying anything at all, then blurts out 'I love you, will you marry me?' and the punch-line is that she's deaf, which I find quite funny."

Cyber City Comix in Toronto, Ontario was sold out of issues 15 and 16.
I take notice of these sort of things, and She-Hulk 15 seems to be sold out at most/all the comic stores I visit in NYC (if they have any they're hiding them). This weekend at Jim Hanley's Universe I didn't see any copies of 15 or 16. Seems pretty quick for them to have sold out of 16 so maybe they just needed to re-stock, but whatever the story, the She-Hulk area was wiped clean. If 15 sold out I'd expect 16 to do as well or better with that amazing cover (and Wolverine! and the Hulk 181 nod). I also had a hard time finding the latest Hulk (103) and had to go to three stores before I found it... a little unusual for the Hulk, I think the World War Hulk excitement is starting to really kick in.
