• Uncanny X-Force #1 Sales Figures

    ICv2 have released the Top 300 Comics for the month of January 2013, which includes the placement of Uncanny X-Force (2013) #1 - The first issue of the series including Puck on the team, by Sam Humphries and Ron Garney.

    [table] [TR] [TD]10[/TD] [TD]59.06[/TD] [TD]UNCANNY X-FORCE #1[/TD] [TD]$3.99[/TD] [TD]MAR[/TD] [TD]86,187[/TD] [/TR] [/table]
    So, the issue came in in 10th place selling 86,187.

    Obviously the issue had 5 covers and a lot of Marvel NOW! promotion but it's still a very healthy & promising amount.

    Let's compare it to:

    [table] [TR] [TD]12[/TD] [TD]63.45[/TD] [TD]ASTONISHING X-MEN #51[/TD] [TD]$3.99[/TD] [TD]MAR[/TD] [TD]82,654[/TD] [/TR] [/table]
    [table] [TR] [TD]121[/TD] [TD]13.12[/TD] [TD]X-CLUB #1[/TD] [TD]$2.99[/TD] [TD]MAR[/TD] [TD]17,552[/TD] [/TR] [/table]
    [table] [TR] [TD]20[/TD] [TD]88.21[/TD] [TD]ALPHA FLIGHT #1[/TD] [TD]$3.99[/TD] [TD]MAR[/TD] [TD]46,851[/TD] [/TR] [/table]
    A lot healthier than our recent AF related releases (even beating the much media-hyped wedding of Northstar & Kyle) which as a new X-Book following on from a very well received first volume is understandable.

    However, again for comparison:

    [table] [TR] [TD]42[/TD] [TD]31.49[/TD] [TD]UNCANNY X-FORCE #35[/TD] [TD]$3.99[/TD] [TD]MAR[/TD] [TD]47,736[/TD] [/TR] [/table]
    [table] [TR] [TD]1[/TD] [TD]268.09[/TD] [TD]UNCANNY X-FORCE #1[/TD] [TD]$3.99[/TD] [TD]MAR[/TD] [TD]95,639[/TD] [/TR] [/table]
    It beats the last issue of the previous volume, yet not the first issue; however the title doesn't feature Wolverine or Deadpool who are known to sell books, which again highlights the achievement of this amount of sales; and it's definitely a lot of new readers discovering Puck as a character.

    Whether the sales for #2 show a massive decline due to the variant cover sales will be seen in just over a month.

    Uncanny X-Force #2 is due in stores February 27th.
