Four copies of Action Comic, the holy grail of collectables where Superman makes his debut, have sold for in excess of $1 million each, with one edition alone achieving $3.2 million (€2.61m) in 2014, which was a fine return if you had only paid its original price of 10 cent.

Demon Slayer sales claim of outdoing the entire American comics industry "lacks rigor"

In January, an article by independent blogger Andy Matrix claimed that Koyoharu Gotouge's Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba manga "outsold" the entire American comics industry... a closer examination of the article's sources and arguments indicate a lack of research and rigor.

Demon Slayer alone sold over 82 million copies, an order of magnitude higher than its closest rivals on the charts. (The second best-selling manga, Kingdom, sold around 8.2 million copies.)
Due to factors such as the COVID-19 pandemic, 2020 also represented a rare year of growth for Japan's manga industry in general, which earned a record 612.6 billion yen (about US$5.77 billion), up 23% from the 498.0 billion yen in 2019.

Discussion of how the sales figures compare and the shortcomings of the data at Anime News Network


Depending on how you choose to look at it, it’s a great time to be a Batman fan. No, one of the Bat titles may not be your cup of tea right now (I’m looking at you Batman.), but there are a lot of Bat-books hitting shelves to make up for that… And we’re getting one more! This, however, might be something that has me more excited than anything else considering Batman is going global. Not just in the story, but the creative teams as well!
