This is the current preorder sales list on Amazon for DC new books trades:

3. DC Comics Bombshells
4. Constantine: The Hellblazer
5. We Are Robin
6. JLA: Justice League of America

22. Doomed

Midnighter is also outselling all older DC books upcoming trades but Harley Quinn. Will my based husbando finally gets the recognition he deserves?

This is probably going to save it right?
It has a chance now doesn't it?

You can learn to read.

>>78291928
I know how to read. How the fuck can I see the entire list for myself?
>>
>>78291810
Please be true, Midnighter and Omega Men selling well in trades gives me hope they might not cancel them at 12.

Please do not delude yourself. Omega Men is definitely ending at 12. Last issue was below 10k and we're only halfway through. It also sells poorly digitally. Good trade sales cannot make up for that, just enjoy the ride.

Crap. Maybe Midnighter has a chance of getting past 12 then.

They're my favorite current cape ongoings, losing both in the same month would be shit.
>>
>>78292072
Omega Men trade is already titled "The Complete Series".
>>
>>78292201
Yeah I'd say Midnighter is better to put your hopes in. The floppy sales aren't that much better but it is usually near the top of the digital charts when it comes out and now the trade doing well is also a good sign. No guarantee but if it got another arc I wouldn't be surprised.
>>
>>78291810
>19. Harley Quinn and Power Girl
>Harley Quinn nowhere in sight

YES
YES
YES
GET FUCKED PALMIOTTI
>>
>>78292266
Harley's main book isn't there because OP only counted new series not continuing ongoings
>>
>>78292289
Stop crushing my dreams anon
>>
>>78292261
So what's the explanation for the books that do well digitally and in trade, but bad in floppies?

Does that mean it found an audience that's not usually into comics and those people would rather buy trades and digital than go into LCSs? Or are DC fans more inclined to buy trades than floppies?
>>
>>78291810
>1. Midnighter
Thank you god
>>
>>78291964

Clearly not because it says Amazon.
>>
>>78292365
then post a link
>>
>>78292353
>Does that mean it found an audience that's not usually into comics and those people would rather buy trades and digital than go into LCSs?
Probably this, I'm guessing

Women and gays who are just dipping their toes into comics might avoid LCSes because of their reputations and it's no big deal to get a trade off Amazon or in a bookstore or a library even

Seems like a lot of the newer readers coming to comics prefers trades over flip floppies in general, even for marvel stuff like Ms. Marvel and Fraction Hawkeye do extremely well in trade
>>
>>78291964
Go to Amazon, get to the books page, click on advanced search, fill in the logical filters like DC Comics for publisher and sort by Bestseling
>>
>>78291810
this means absolutely nothing
>>
>>78292353
I don't know if we can really guess. Like we don't even get international data publicly. What if it's just a bunch of Europeans who happen to like Midnighter a lot and buy from Comixology to get him that high? No way to know that vs just people who prefer digital or whatever else.
>>
>>78292442
Why do you say that? Trade sales generally peak in the first month or two of release from both LCS and bookstores like Amazon. Or do you just mean that preorders don't provide a good forecast for those numbers?
>>
>>78292442

Since Didio said trade sales are good and its starting to matter more than it ysed to. to the I would say it changes something.
>>
Unless Midnighter cracks into DC's top Amazon books (it's only #235 at the moment) then it isn't selling great or anything. Won't know if it will climb up higher until closer to the books release.

Still, it is an overrated title and will be cancelled soon. All Wildstorm characters should go back to their own universe anyway.
>>
>>78292266
Hate to break it to you ducky but Palimotti's Harley Quinn is month by month the highest-selling superheroine on the planet.

Yeah, I kniw
>>
>>78292730
All DC top 100 books already were released. For preorder books, like OP said, Midnighter is only losing to Harley Quinn, which is a great result.
>>
>>78292442
you mean absolutely nothing
>>
>>78292880
No, there is a Supergirl silver age ombibus book that isn't released until May 24, 2016 in the top 100.
>>
>>78292933
Ok then, one book. Still a good result.
>>
>>78292933
The Supergirl omni has a lot of preorders because it's listed at 18 bucks and people are ordering it before Amazon realizes their mistake
>>
>>78292976
More books will pass it, like more Batman and Justice League books, once we get into next year.
>>
>>78291810
>Gotham By Midnight not even listed

Ouch.
>>
>>78291810
Where is your source?
>>
>>78293026
If it's like the silver age Justic League and GL omnis, that's a steal of a price.

Eurobros can get it from German amazon.
>>
>>78293133
>for DC new books trades
>>
>>78293133
OP didn't include continuing series

>>78293219
It literally says Amazon
>>
>>78293251
Yeah this is the solicit listing for it

SUPERGIRL: THE SILVER AGE OMNIBUS HC
Written by OTTO BINDER, LEO DORFMAN and JERRY SIEGEL
Art by JIM MOONEY and AL PLASTINO
Cover by DARWYN COOKE
On sale MAY 18 • 688 pg, FC, $75.00 US
Collecting the Girl of Steel’s adventures from ACTION COMICS #252-307! As Superman’s secret weapon, Supergirl must adjust to life in the Midvale Orphange. The stories alternate between tales about friends and school, Supergirl’s efforts to master her new powers, and time-travel jaunts into the far future and distant past.

Amazon has it as a 20 dollar tpb right now for whatever reason but they have a preorder guarantee
>>
>>78293280
Sometimes on pricing errors those guarantees don't mean much. If you complain they will usually give you a gift card though.
>>
>>78293311
They've honored it for me before, it's only happened once or twice though

giftcards are nice too tho
>>
Poor Jason
>>
>>78293345
He deserves it for being shit.
>>
>>78293345
>>78293374
It's actually a pretty great spot for a book of such shit quality. Jason attracts a lot of readers in spite having literally nothing worth reading.
>>
>>78291810
>22. Doomed

A book who lives up to its name.
>>
>>78291810
Wishing Prez and JL 3001 were higher, but otherwise this list is pretty legit. Glad to see Hellblazer and Omega Men so high up too.
>>
>>78293470
Maybe it's Jason fans hoping it will get better
>>
>>78293999

I like Jason when Lobdell isn't writing him... I really want King to take over the Batbooks...

>Grayson's not in the top 20
Am I the only one ordering the trade?
>>
>>78291810
>3. DC Comics Bombshells
Any good?
>20. Red Hood/Arsenal
Ha.
>>
>>78292353
>Does that mean it found an audience that's not usually into comics and those people would rather buy trades and digital than go into LCSs?
Yes.
Didio and Lee have admitted that the people they were pandering to with the DCYou are way more likely to buy trades than floppies.
And not just trades, but paperback trades. Grayson and Batgirl's painfully average HC sales probably helped them in that decision. Starfire and a couple other DCYou books were originally listed as a HC but were changed to TPB.
>>
>>78298149
OP did the DCYou books. Grayson is from before.

>>78298170
Yes, Bombshells is pretty good. Too many characters for my taste so it's pretty jumpy, but still good.
A digital title doing that well is great too.They'll need it when Injustice is finally completed.
>>
>>78298170
What I don't like about Bombshells is that they switch the artists around a lot, but you can't help it with a weekly. Overall it wasn't bad but I kind of lost interest.
>>
>>78295003
same here. he's also fairly decent in B&R Eternal right now too.
>>
>>78291810
>1. Midnighter
Thank you
>>
>>78293280
its actually a paperback on amazon

>Worst selling floppy books are top 10 trade waits

Dear god, it's your fucking fault we're losing these books.
>>
>>78299982
Yeah /co/ realized that a while back.
>>
>>78291810
>Robin: Son of Robin
>>
>>78292119
>Omega Men is definitely ending at 12
followed by Kyle Rayner and the Omega Men or Green Lantern and the Omega Men as it fucking should've been from the start. Instantly add at least 10k to it's figures.
