Now when I heard the news that Loot Crate was running with a special variant for their box release I thought well that’ll help out IDW Publishing sales. Then I saw the numbers of orders for the cover, almost a half a million copies printed and apparently over 350,000 of those printed copies were for Loot Crate. Then I thought, someone over at IDW Publishing is getting a promotion because damn! It’s not often you see any comic over 200-250 thousand copies printed but February was a good month for IDW Publishing.
What’s also amazing is how well the new property Star Wars is doing for Marvel. Last month was almost a million copies printed and this month with Darth Vader its clearly over 400,000 in total. Top that with 250,000 plus some with the new series Spider-Gwen and I think marvel is looking even better this month. I’m sure Disney is happy about that and we can only hope that all those copies printed were mostly purchased by eager buyers. I know I was one of them and look forward to the series as Star Wars is on a roll.
Poor DC because only Batman and Justice League made it in the top 10 where Marvel had 7 of the coveted top 10 spots. However, IDW Publishing was the top cat this month thanks to Loot Crate!
