Batman Arkham Knight Genesis #5 features an appearance by Deathstroke. Awesome cover too. Check out another bat book this week; Batman Europa #2. Batman and the Joker seek out the new character known as Trojan Man.

The new Deadpool comic will introduce the Mexican version of……Deadpool! Meet Masacre in Deadpool #3.1.
Kanan The Last Padawan #9 will have Caleb Dume facing off against General Grievous.
We love the Silk character and we love the Mark Bagley variant cover to Silk #2!
Squadron Supreme #1 debuts on new comic book day. It should be a good team book. Written by James Robinson and art from Leonard Kirk. Squadron Supreme first appeared in Avengers #85 (1971).
An interesting Marvel title this week to check out; Starbrand and Nightmask #1. Pick up the first appearances of Starbrand (new) in Avengers #7 (2013) and the first appearance of Nightmask (character) in Avengers #6 (2013) for cover price or less if you believe in these heroes to advance to greater heights in the realm of the new Marvel universe. Speculators have been put on notice.
Ultimate End #5 will be the last issue. See how it all ends. We’re loving that cover with Miles looking back. *sniff sniff*
Marvel’s new Weirdworld series will introduce a new character named Becca. We like the direction of this new series. Stay with this one. Written by Sam Humphries. Art by Mike Del Mundo. The regular “Flash/Shazam/Black Adam” Lightning bolt cover is awesome as well. Be sure to pick up Weirdworld #1 Vol. 2.
…..And Marvel releases their first Darth Vader Annual this Wednesday.

What would be better than having Amanda Connor and Jimmy Palmiotti on the monthly Harley Quinn and Starfire comics? How about a totally creative controlled NEW comic character by the awesome duo? Yes it will happen and HER name will be Super Zero. Super Zero #1 will be written by Amanda and Jimmy. Dru Dragowski (Super Zero) will become the next big female hero to enter the comic book arena. After-Shock Comics once again, week after week continues to bring it. After-Shock Comics are not gunning for tremors, they’re gunning to split the foundation of the comic industry. ASC will be a force to be reckoned with.

An all new Judge Dredd series from IDW comes out this week. Judge Dredd #1 Vol. 5 will have several variants available. The Archie variant is a neat one.
IDW will also start on a new Star Trek series. This has nothing to do with the Marvel title from 1996. Star Trek Starfleet Academy #1 will introduce new Star Trek characters so if you’re a Trekkie, you’ll want to get this. Speculators have been notified.
Also from IDW; Pinocchio Vampire Slayer Versus The Vampire Zoo. A fun looking book!

RAREST COMIC BOOKS of 2009-2012

THE RAREST / SMALLEST PRINT COMICS OF 2009-2012

SALES MARKET REPORT by Terry Hoknes hoknes@hotmail.com

Diamond publishes a list of the 300 best selling comics each month which is where these statistics are compiled from.

If a comic sold very poorly it may not have even made the top 300 list so we are only using data for those comics that did make the chart.

Here are a sample of the Top 10 worst/lowest sales for various comics from the main publishers during the past 4 years.

On one level this just proves these titles are not popular BUT it also will prove in the long run to be the rarest comics to collect as back issues in the future.

DC COMICS – the worlds #2 publisher has released some comics with some very weak sales numbers.  Some are not surprising as there are many titles aimed at young child readers as well as some expensive 100 page giants “DC Comics Presents” and some short lived titles.  This list ranks all 82 comics of the past 4 years that had sales of under 4,000 copies.    This list is in fact not the worst as I do not have sales data for the few kids comics titles that sold so poorly they did not chart.  This would include numerous issues of: Cartoon Network Action Pack, Billy Batson and Mad Magazine.

IMAGE COMICS – the worlds #3 publisher does not sell the numbers that they used to.  They publish a lot of mini-series and one-shots and many titles have very low sales/orders.

This list ranks all 37 comics of the past 4 years that had sales of under 3,000 copies.

This list is in fact not the worst as I do not have sales data for the Image comics that did not even sell enough to rank on a monthly Top 300 chart.

This would include numerous issues of titles such as:  PVP, Sweets, Elephantman etc.

This list is truly a list of rare and forgotten comics as the average comic store in North America did not even order a single copy of any of these !

MARVEL COMICS – the worlds biggest publisher. They usually dominate the best selling comics but due to also publishing more monthly titles than any other company they also find some of their releases lost in the shuffle and ignored at the bottom of the scale.    71 comics made the monthly Top 300 chart that sales of under 4,000 copies.  Many of these are expensive issues or unique one-shots.  A few series made their way numerous times on the list proving to be Marvel’s worst selling titles before being cancelled.
