AWESOME!!! Wow, this issue deserved the first spot! Do we have any numbers to know how many copies of the issue were sold (or assumed as sold)?

Great result nevertheless, now I hope the following issues can keep the quality of the first one (and that the sales keep steady, of course)! And I hope the two-week delay for issue #2 doesn't hinder its success too much...

HA!!!!! Even Batman Return cannot top the favorite Wetwork team with Bets. Suck on our Girl's dick Wayne.

No comic cracked the 100,000-copy mark in the direct market in October, with the top title, Marvel’s Uncanny X-Force #1, selling an estimated 96,500 copies

what do you think about this???

FSaker said...

@ermfrst - Uhm, I don't think Betsy has a dick...

@Os - It depends. It's definitely not good to the overall comics market, but not really bad for Uncanny X-Force. Correct me if I'm mistaken, but 96,500 copies is a pretty big number, isn't it? Uncanny X-Men is the main X-title, and as far as I know it usually sells this much or less than that. And come on, UXF surpassed the return of Bruce Wayne, it's not like there wasn't a huge hype for it.

If issue #2 drops a lot, though, then we should get concerned. So far, I'd say it's a great number!
