What’s Out Wednesday

Posted: May 20, 2015 in Comics, JD Hardin

The sales numbers from April are in, and apparently, Marvel isn’t very happy. Of course, they have no reason to be. Of the top ten comics, Marvel held only four places with all four of their Star Wars titles. DC, however, held the other six places. This increased DC’s market share to 30.19%, compared to Marvel’s 34.15%. Granted, Marvel still retains the largest portion of the market. Their lead has greatly diminished. 

   Now the reason I’m writing all this is Marvel can feel the heat of competition, as evidences by their onslaught of releases so far this month. This week in particular we are bombarded with A-Force #1, Deadpool’s Secret Secret Wars #1, Master of Kung-Fu #1, Battleworld #1, Spider-Verse #1, Planet Hulk #1, Daredevil #1, Ultimate End #1, and Uncanny Avengers: Ultron Forever #1. These are just the #1’s for this week, there are fourteen ongoing titles that are also being released today. For those of you hoping to get Uncanny X-Men #600, you’re going to have to wait a while. In true Marvel form, it has been pushed back.

 DC is sitting on the haunches of Convergence #7 and ten of its tie ins. However, to keep things interesting, Infinite Crisis: Fight for the Multiverse #11 and Sensation Comics Featuring Wonder Woman will be dropped to keep the pulse rates going. DC’s mature readers’ label, Vertigo, is releasing Mad Max: Fury Road: Nux & Immortan Joe #1. (Listen into our podcast for a review)

Image is giving us another issue of Spawn, Stray Bullets #4, The Tithe #2 (listen in for a review and interview with writer, Matt Hawkins), Trees #9, Satellite Sam #14, and so much more.
As always, there are more releases than I can list. So, get to your local comic book shop and get your fix. Don’t forget to like often, share often, and listen often. We will also be broadcasting LIVE from Comicpalooza Friday at 6pm CST.
