DC Comics Estimated Sales For August 2016


It's now October 2 and I'm finally getting to the August sales numbers.  While I am to blame for the lateness of this write-up, it's partly due to the fact that the numbers themselves came out a bit later than usual and because of that........... Well, I actually forgot about them.  Don't worry though, I finally got back on the sales number trolley and put this together for all to enjoy.  Like every other month we look at, I'm not going to be posting Hanna-Barbara numbers or collected digital first issues and because they just keep coming.......... because of how bad ass Rebirth is, I won't be listing the continued sales of Rebirth or any of the other older books that just keep tickling people's wallets and getting them to explore what DC Comics has to offer.  Alright, let's check out what August was like and see if DC is still kicking ass and taking names with their Rebirth launch.

8.       Harley Quinn #2
$2.99
116,651
359,957

Goddamn did Harley and Justice League drop down from their initial sales.  While I imagine Harley will start settling down so we can see what it will sell on a regular basis, there’s no way that Justice League will maintain its over a 100,000 status……  I say that, but I still hear people talking about how great it is, so what do I know?

9.       Supergirl: Rebirth #1
$2.99
112,807


10.   Justice League #3
$2.99
110,738
127,402

Yes!  Keep on sucking Justice League because the only way we’ll see change is if everyone drops this.

11.   Deathstroke: Rebirth #1
$2.99
99,318


12.   Nightwing #2
$2.99
93,131

$2.99
88,935
92,172

16.   Superman #4
$2.99
88,154
97,606

While I understand why people may have dropped Superman off their pull list……… you know, with all that Eradicator nonsense.  What I want you to realize is it’s gotten back on track and is one of the titles I look forward to the most now.  Who can say no to little Jon?

17.   Wonder Woman #4
$2.99
85,329
94,465

18.   Red Hood and The Outlaws #1
$2.99

77,972
108,708


25.   Wonder Woman #5
$2.99
77,860
85,329

Okay, this is one of the best books that DC Comics is putting out right now and for the most part, it keeps getting better and better each issue……….. So why the hell is it dropping in sales?  Is the twice monthly bit scaring people off because of the cost?  It’s crazy.

26.   Batgirl and The Birds of Prey #1
$2.99
75,892


27.   Blue Beetle: Rebirth #1
$2.99
72,993


28.   Titans #2
$2.99
72,799
102,433

Goddamn, Titans.  That’s a hell of a drop.  I know you’re taking your time to really get things crackin’, but with the sales dropping at this rate, you won’t have many readers left in a couple of months.

29.   New Super-Man #2
$2.99
72,522
117,684

Nevermind.  Now this is a hell of a drop!

30.   Action Comics #961
$2.99
71,821
75,710

31.   Green Lanterns #4
$2.99
71,140

32.   Green Arrow #4

67,577
72,864

33.   Hal Jordan and The Green Lantern Corps #3
$2.99
64,737
77,972

There is something seriously wrong in the world when Hal Jordan fighting Sinestro doesn’t create some kind of excitement in the common comic book reader.  Yeah, things aren’t moving as fast as I would like them to, but it’s weird as hell seeing this book doing so poorly compared to others.

34.   Action Comics #962

51.   Six Pack & Dogwelder: Hard Travelin’ Heroz #1
$2.99

Now this is a goddamn shame.  Six Pack and Dogwelder is a hilarious book and anyone who has any kind of sick sense of humor should be picking this up……….. Maybe there’s a lot less people out there with that kind of sense of humor than I thought, but either way, pick up this book!
