Yes, it was an other of those funny fifth Wednesday's of the month that crop up occasionally and cause release schedule headaches for comics publishers across the globe - However, it can also be used as a good opportunity to get a title noticed - And as you can see some titles took the fifth week by storm!
#1 was a no-brainer as despite the TERRIBLE lateness on this book it gets many people back into the store who might no otherwise be reading comic books (and will continue to sell well over the next month or so).
Marvel had their best debut for AGES with the X-Men prime one-shot setting up the rejuvenated X-verse - it sold the best an X-Men title has ever done for us since we opened and it is great to see an X-Title back in the charts - Look out for X-Men Gold #1 this week and Blue soon after!
(For those of you wondering Inhumans Prime sold 1/5 of X-Men :( )
Deadpool and the Mercs got #3 due to a crossover event with one of our most popular books (Spider-man / Deadpool) so had a big sales jump over the regular series (we also added it to pull lists for those with Sm/DP)
Animosity is holding strong and is Aftershock's best seller by some way - as is Cinema Purgatorio for Avatar.
Old Guard snuck in at #10 with it's second issue and has picked up readers from #1 - Rucka is delivering as always and it's an interesting book :)
