Each month we kick off with an episode looking back at what happened in comics in the previous month. October was a doozy.
Marvel released a bunch of All New number one issues. In terms of financial and marketing success – the ploy cannot be argued against. Out of the top ten estimated comics sold to North American comics shops (as Reported by Diamond Comic Distributors) 6 of them were Marvel number ones: Invincible Iron Man (1st – 279,514), Amazing Spider-Man (2nd – 245,873), Spider Gwen (3rd – 197,103),Doctor Strange (5th – 145,456), Chewbacca (7th – 122,952), and Guardians of the Galaxy (9th – 118,342).
