TILTING AT WINDMILLS #223 is live!

Brian Hibbs

As always, you can find it at Comic Book Resources.   Quick addition to the piece: One other thing that I forgot to mention in the piece is that “A series of mini-series” is the WORST OF ALL POSSIBLE WORLDS. See, what happens with POS systems is that they track “series” by an internal number assigned by Diamond called a series code.  However, each mini-series RESETS that series code, making it more difficult to track subscription orders, or to see changes in the series over time, etc. Things like, say, BPRD, which was producing at least 12 issues a year, but renumbering them every few months, didn’t show any native relationship to one another when looked up… unless the retailer…  Read More…

There are published reports that say that this ended at the end of June 2012, but there’s also reports from everyone’s favorite muckraker, Rich Johnston, that some/much of the books were returning to some B&N locations before 2011 even ended. What does this actually do to the charts?  I have no real idea. Typically 4th quarter is the strongest sales quarter, so, in theory, this should have impacted DC’s 2011 numbers much stronger than 2012, but even that’s uncertain — how much demand…  Read More…
