As I Promised: A Discussion of Sales Numbers

Comicsbeat.com finally released their number crunching for DC October sales last week, and it looks pretty much like what I expected. Of interest are the annual sales comparisons for Booster Gold:

  • Sales down 10.2% over 6 months ago;
  • Sales down 17.6% over 1 year ago;
  • Sales down 40.5% over 2 years ago.

These declines are pretty much in line with the other mid-tier DC books. So surprise, surprise, despite the doom and gloom numbers I keep harping over, Booster Gold is about exactly where we should expect it to be. Booster fans can breathe easier!

Diamond has yet to release the sales numbers for Booster Gold for November, but I think I can probably venture a pretty good guess about where they will be. November wasn't a great month for DC sales in general, especially when compared to last year when DC offered the Blackest Night ring promotion. So I expect the sales slide to continue to about 17,025 issues. We'll see what we see when the real numbers arrive.
