So the sales numbers are in for the 1st issue of Mr and Mrs X #1 which is 71,396 and is in the 15th position from the top 100 comics for the month of July 2018.

Don't know if it is a strong start for the debut issue?


It is fine. MMX sold 30 k more then R&G and went to 2nd printing. I hpe sales will be stable.


It is 2nd best selling X book after X-23#1 for july.

Welcome Gargi ... enjoy the forum.
IMO - a very solid start for the book ... don't take it wrong, but probably because their names are not on it. :)

That's a good point. I also wonder how much better it would have done if it was announced more than a month before it released.

Yeah, I wonder that too or was that strategy at play in hopes of higher sales? Not sure. I know those who love it think it might have done better with more promotion, on the other hand, look at R&G .... not knowing what it was might have helped more. Not sure, can never tell with Marvel.

It's the drop off between #1 and #2 that say more, who knows.

All books have a huge drop from #1 to #2.
Domino fell from 90k for #1 to 25k for #2.
X-23 from 95k to 35k.


Funny but the only thing that saves from huge drop is Venom variants now, lol.


As for good sales for MMX it was the help of surprise wedding that made a lot of buzz. Also now people know what to expect from MMX book.


When R&G arrived noone knew what was the purpose of book. If it was just funny adventures, ending of romance or fresh start.

...right.


Hey, I started writing for Bounding Into Comics. I noticed they hadn't done a review of the book so I volunteered. Let me know what you think... or not.

Gail Simone actually posted when people were talking about how bad domino's drop was. She said those numbers didn't include everything, which we did know and also that the orders for number 2 are placed before number one is delivered. Which is something I didn't know, So a lot of the big drops are the owners predicting that there will be a big drop.
