Loot Crate Wakes ‘The Walking Dead’

30169WalkingDead132_LC-xlg[1]

The top comic in October, The Walking Dead #132, sold over 326,000 copies, according to indexes provided by Diamond Comic Distributors and calculations by ICv2.  That’s over 250,000 more than the subsequent issue; Loot Crate did a variant for its October crate.  If the full difference from #133 is due to Loot Crate, it’s been growing; that’s a bigger difference than the apparent sales bump on Rocket Raccoon#1, the last title so affected, which sold in 293,000 copies.

The Walking Dead was only part of the good news; there were seven titles with sales of over 100,000 in October, the strongest month at the top in recent memory.  Five of the titles over 100,000 were Marvels, including Death of Wolverine, which accomplished the amazing feat of increasing sales from #2 to #3, and from #3 to #4.  An unplanned delay in shipping for the ostensibly weekly book, which created a gap between #2 and #3, may have helped sales on the later issues by giving retailers time to increase their orders after seeing the sales on #1 and #2.

Two comics in the Top 10, one over 100,000 and one just under, starred female characters:  the new Thor #1 and Harley Quinn Annual #1, which had featured the notorious “Scent-icular” technology (and also featured an order what you want “Bombshells” Variant and “International Editions.”).  Two graphic novels in the Top 10 also starred female characters, Ms. MarvelVol. 1 TP and Harley Quinn Vol. 1: Hot in the City HC.

GamersCircle Comics is extremely pleased to bring table top gaming to Folsom, CA via Table Top with Jason.  Jason will be volunteering his time and sharing his board game enthusiasm with those that wish to come and either join in or just watch.
 
The January Table Top with Jason will be:

Sunday on January 12th, 2014 starting at Noon with the table top preference of SMALL WORLD.

Small World  is a zany, light-hearted civilization game in which 2-5 players vie for conquest and control of a board that is simply too small to accommodate them all! Picking the right combination of fantasy races and unique special powers, players must rush to expand their empires – often at the expense of weaker neighbors. Yet they must also know when to push their own over-extended civilization into decline and ride a new one to victory.

2-5 Players
Age 8+
40-80 minutes
