Booster Gold Versus The Doom Patrol

Booster Gold Volume 2 Sales Vs Canceled TitlesToday's graph compresses the timeline of yesterday's graph to compare apples to apples: issue by issue of Comicchron.com sales numbers for recently canceled DC titles. The trend becomes pretty obvious here as ballooning early enthusiasm quickly deflates to a sloping plateau before finally petering out altogether. Note the recurring late series crossover spikes as Blue Beetle #20 is a Sinestro Corps crossover and both Manhunter #13 and 26 got boosts from Infinite Crisis-related stories. I wonder how big those spikes would have been if little plastic rings had been involved?

DC's sales cancellation threshold, while dependent on editorial discretion, is approximately 15,000 units. That's the white line in the graph above. Unless "Blackest Night" or the arrival of Keith Giffen can earn Booster Gold some new regular readers, it looks like the series will be targeted for termination by issue 50. I find that unacceptable. So spread the word, Boosterphiles, and lets see if we can't get some more air under Booster's sails.
