At SDCC last year, Hugh Jackman teased that the next Wolverine would be based in part on Old Man Logan. For those that aren’t familiar with the 2008 eight issue series, here’s a little background.

There’s a lot of discussion, arguments, and controversy surrounding the world of comic books and their films as of late. Not to fret, we’ll definitely discuss that, just not in this article. Right now, we’re going to talk about the size and repercussions of Civil War II and Rebirth. Civil War II had a pretty large build up and it seems to me, that it hasn’t really led to anything earth-shattering or much more than a tremor. Outside of a few characters deaths (which I’m sure will be short-lived [HA!}) the “epic fight” hasn’t been much more than a spat between estranged lovers.

On the other side of street in the Superman titles alone Rebirth has killed one Superman, brought back the Superman from the early 90’s with a wife and son, made the son a Superman of sorts, resurrected Doomsday (a GOOD Doomsday), returned The Eradicator to the pages, and brought about a Chinese Superman. And that is just the tip of the iceberg for the DC universe.

Maybe I’m biased, but it doesn’t seem like Civil War II is living up to its predecessor’s name.

Spider-Man/Deadpool has made the final turn of its ten issue publishing run with installment #8, and Old Man Logan continues The Last Ronin arc. DC fans, your second issue of The All-New Superman is here as well, and there’s so much more. So……

It’s time 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…………
