The numbers from June are out!!! Marvel’s increase of market control has slowed significantly. Increasing from 41.11% to only 43.16%. DC’s increases mirror Marvel’s gains with 26.04% to 28.04%. Image stays in the 10% range. July will be the swing month for the year so far. The slowing of Marvel’s ascent in market share would indicate readers’ fatigue with Secret Wars. However, DC’s rate of increase is no different. The question is, where are the readers going?

Here’s all the options….

What’s Out Wednesday

By: JD Hardin
I’ll be continuing WOW in the same manner as last week. The DCYOU rages on with it’s very colorful titles and plot lines. Marvel’s Secret Wars continues with few non-event titles available. Image is also hammering out some fantastic issues this week.
The question is, how much Secret Wars can the readers take? With an estimated run set at least a year, the scope of tie-ins, and few Marvel options outside of the massive event, I predict a drop in sales on the horizon. What do you think? Send us a tweet and let your voice be heard. Anyway, here’s what all us junkies have on the buffet this week.

IXth Generation #4

By: JD Hardin

It’s a great week to be a comic book reader. Vertigo, Dynamite, and Image are making their presence known. Marvel continues Secret Wars with both ongoing and new titles. DC shows us they still have some tricks up their sleeves as well.

image

Vertigo FINALLY gives us Mad Max: Fury Road: Mad Max #1, the issue we’ve all been waiting on!!

image

From Image this week, Big Man Plans #4 and Bloodstrike #1.

image

Marvel plants it’s flag with Civil War #1, Lando #1, Max Ride: First Flight #4, Old Man Logan #3, Weirdworld #2, and Star Wars #7.

image

DC kicks things up a notch with Batman #42, Batman/Superman #22, Constantine: The Hellblazer #2, Earth 2: Society #2, and the much anticipated Starfire #2.
image

The BIG news this week is the Archie reboot from M&M comics. This #1 is getting a huge selection of variant covers, including the one shown above, which is done by our friends at All Star Comics. Chris Foreman did all the pencils and ink, and colors were done by Kris Asbeck. These guys have talent beyond compare, and we should see a lot more of them.

Chris Foreman does take commissions, and has an incredible portfolio. You can connect with him through his twitter, here, or his instagram here.

It’s an AMAZING week for releases. It seems there are more releases every week. Marvel and DC continue to battle for the majority of the market share. Meanwhile, smaller publishers like Image are still sneaking in for a small, however growing, portion of the market.

  
Marvel fights to hold their 40% by expanding Secret Wars with Age of Ultron VS Zombies #1, E Is For Extinction #1, Korvac Saga #1, and X-Men ’92 #1. Their already ongoing titles, Secret Wars and otherwise, are still sounding off, providing endurance for the Marvel machine. The Ant Man: Larger Than Life #1 will give strength toward the upcoming Ant Man feature film. I believe this issue will sell like hot cakes, so get it while it’s hot.

  
DC continues its DCYOU with Aquaman #41, Batgirl #41, Grayson #9, Justice League 3301 #1, Superman #41, The Flash #41, We Are Robin #1, and a few others. Their more serious titles continue as well. Deathstroke #7, Gotham by Midnight #6, and Injustice: Gods Among Us Year 4 #4 keep the DC presence strong through a rather small number of releases this week.

  
Image, aware of their current position in the market, has (in my opinion) the best releases this week. Our friend, and amazing writer, Matt Hawkins is giving us Postal #5 and The Tithe #3. Both of these titles have received top ratings by The Nerdery. All Star CCG favorite, Mythic is getting its second issue today. Rasputin #6, Sons Of The Devil #2, Invisible Republic #4, Wytches, The Fade Out, Material, and Spawn all make appearances this week as well.

This is another great week for comic readers. Whether you like heroes and superpowers, horror and suspense, or  mysteries and detectives, there’s a book dropping today that you’ll love. So get to your local comic book store and grab some of these great offers.

Don’t forget to like often, share often, read often, and listen in every Sunday at 8:30 and 9:30.

By: JD Hardin
Marvel definitely felt the heat from DC’s sales back in April. Marvel dropped Secret Wars just in time to take a great portion of the market back in May. At 40.17% of the market, Marvel is well ahead of the pack in sales with DC trailing at 25.43%. Image retained an 8.89%, putting all other publishers at 5% and less. It sounds like DC needs to pump up their sales tactics.

Undergoing a cross between a renaissance and a reboot, DC is starting an entire smorgasbord of new titles. The majority of DC’s older titles are experiencing rebirths, so to speak.

 New titles beginning today are:

  • Black Canary
  • Doctor Fate
  • Doomed
  • Green Lantern: The Lost Army
  • Harley Quinn and Power Girl
  • Justice League Of America
  • Martian Manhunter
  • Prez
  • Robin: Son Of Batman

  

    Several titles have survived through Convergence and are releasing today, including Sensation Comics Featuring Wonder Woman #11, Sinestro #12, Superman/Wonder Woman #18, and Wonder Woman #41.
    Marvel is releasing Bucky Barnes: Winter Soldier #9, Darth Vader #7, and a few other titles not related to Secret Wars. Marvel also continues its Secret Wars event with a multitude of issues carrying the Secret Wars logo.

      

    • Armor Wars #2
    • Deadpool’s Secret Secret Wars #2
    • Magneto #19
    • Ms. Marvel #16
    • Old Man Logan #2
    • Runaways #1
    • Squadron Sinister #1
    • Thors #1

    Image drops more than a few golden nuggets today. Our friend Matt Hawkins is finally giving us Tales Of Honor: Bred To Kill #1, which we got a peek at for Free Comic Book Day. Image is also giving us Run Love Kill #3, Stray Bullets #5, and quite a good selection of other titles as well.

      
    As always, there’s more releasing than I have room to even mention, so get to your local comic book store and grab some books. You never know what you might find.
