Today Troy and Will talk about a recent trip to get another Comic Book Store Inventory.

Comic Book News:

  • DC Comics’ The New 52 has powered the rejuvenated publisher to a third consecutive first place showing on the top of Diamond Comic Distributors comic book and graphic novel sales charts, but the newly-reversed gap between DC and Marvel has narrowed considerably.
  • Newsarama reports: Powered by the bestselling comic book of November 2011 – Justice League #3 – and 4 of the Top 5 bestselling titles, 6 of the Top 10, and the bestselling graphic novel of the month – Batman: Noel, DC again sits atop of both the Unit and Dollar Market Share charts, with 39.66% Unit Share and 34.69% Dollar Share, respectively.
  • These figures narrowly beat out Marvel, who led by their bestselling comic book of the month, the Point One special (#5 on the charts), accounted for 37.84% of Unit Share and 33.30% of Dollar share, leaving it a guessing game whether DC’s momentum will allow it to hold onto its industry lead in upcoming months.
  • Perhaps the real headline news, however, is due to extremely strong comic book unit sales (+30.06%) and graphic novel dollar sales (+12.43%) compared to November 2010, year-to-date 2011 has leapt ahead of ytd 2010 sales by 5.47% in Units and 1.87% in Dollars, the first time both figures have been in positive territory this year.
  • Yes, it’s official – after an extremely slow start to the year, the comic book industry is growing in 2011.
  • Jerry Robinson, creator of the Joker died in his sleep Wednesday night.  He was 89.
  • Lots of changes in creators.  Gail Simone leaving Firestorm.  Brian Michael Bendis off the Avengers.  Fabian Nicieza off of Legion Lost.
  • Avengers X-Sanction #1 comes out next week, starting a new Marvel event.  Cable comes back to prevent the upcoming tragedies that spark the Avengers vs the X-Men event.. and every move he makes changes the Marvel Universe.
