Looking at the monthly sales it seems TIH is continuing to lose readers – it’s down to about 40,000 – and the better book, The Red Hulk, is staying at a measly 21,000. What is it with comic readers not buying the well written series? When the Red Hulk was a sales juggernaut it was one of the worst written series that had come out in a long time – now that the book actually makes sense and is a decent read – more than 70% of the readers disappeared. What does that say about comic readers?
I’ve heard people complain that they want genuine, better stories and stop with the big events – yet, looking at the monthly sales, that’s all that people keep buying. It’s somewhat disappointing. Not to mention – why is TIH still at $3.99? The FF book – that only had 200 less readers in February – was $2.99! The following month – the FF was back at $3.99! Is Marvel just going month by month here?
I told you I saw in NJ this past weekend – and I saw plenty of Hulk #50 – and I mean PLENTY – still sitting on the shelves of the comic shop I was in. When I asked about it – they said that Hulk does not sell anymore. It’s too bad.
