FEBRUARY 2018 COMIC BOOK SALES!

Marvel and DC were basically even in terms of issues sold—each took 36% of the market.  Image got almost 11%, and the other indies split the difference.

TOP 10 COMICS FOR FEBRUARY 2018

1.  Dark Knights Rising: The Wild Hunt #1 (DC)
2.  X-Men: Red #1 (Marvel)
3.  Batman #40 (DC)
4.  Batman #41 (DC)

As usual, DC can only crack the top 10 with Batbooks.  Sad!  I wonder if Brian Michael Bendis will be able to change that when he takes over Superman?
