The Mega Man Sales Thread

Postby RadRed89 » Thu Sep 25, 2014 10:33 pm

So since the Sonic forums have a topic for this (though it hasn't been updated in awhile), I thought maybe Mega Man should have one too.

I'm getting all of my numbers from comichron.com, which only tracks sales of comic books on the DIRECT market, meaning sales from subscriptions, books stores like Barnes&Nobles, and grocery stores aren't counted. I'll try to keep this as relatively up to date as I can.

Hurf.
While I'm glad that they're at least consistent, while I'm glad that the trades are doing well and while I'm aware that digital sales aren't included in that list (and I know that that's how I and others on this site get their fix), nothing changes the fact that those numbers are so woefully low.
I've done my best to interest friends both online and offline into picking it up, but I don't think I'm having much of an impact.
