Marvel and DC are still duking it out to see who will take the biggest sales numbers for July. Civil War II and Rebirth are two major events that seem to have opposite intentions for their respective publishers. The events also seem to be having an opposite effect from what was originally intended. Civil War II was meant to throw utter chaos into the Marvel Universe. Instead, it seems to be cleaning house. Divided characters, deaths, and clear definitions are drawing pretty dark lines for the fans to distinguish this from that. On the other side of the fence, DC’s Rebirth planned to clean up the New 52, DC You, and Pre-New 52 continuities and make everything as streamlined as a multiverse can get. What DC is actually doing is making a total mess of everything. While it is entertaining, it is very frustrating and confusing with 3+ Supermen, 2 Flashes and who knows what’s going on with Aquaman.

Anyhow, Postal Volume 3 has officially begun!!!  excuse me………..

I must be going now……

I’ve got to raid the racks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Civil War II and Rebirth are still going at it strong. Marvel dominated for the month of June with 40.08% of the market. DC came in second with 29.93%, and Image has their 7.88% market share in a kung fu grip. However, DC is grabbing up unit sales and is rapidly becoming a threat to Marvel with only a 12.48% difference in units sold! Not surprising is the fact that seven of the top ten issues in June, were DC titles. DC also has a firm grip on trade paper backs for June, taking five out of the top ten TPB’s for the month. In a world where Marvel has dominated for the past few years, DC seems to be on track to dethrone the reigning king.

This week, the publishers are giving us a shining example of what comics have to offer. No matter what you’re into, there’s a book out there for you. There’s quite a few out there for me. So…………

Fear And Loathing in Las Vegas, the end of The Darkseid War, an all new Captain America, and the start of DC’s REBIRTH all dropping today?!?! Well, I don’t have to tell you how cool that is. But, I do want to point out some things you won’t want to miss in all the commotion between DC and Marvel. Symmetry Vol. 1 also drops today. Smaller publishers determine whether or not to continue a title based on how many trades are sold. SO BUY SYMMETRY!!!!! You won’t regret it. Well, those are the highlights for the week, there’s a ton more going on, of course. But let’s not waste time. We gotta get to the racks so we can actually get our books before they’re gone!
