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).

Last October the top selling comic was Death of Wolverine # 4 and sold 165,582.

So – get ready for reboots and new number ones forever and ever.  This is our incursion event – deal with it

One big question remains to be answered – are they any good?  If only there was a podcast we could listen to and find out …
