It's the time of month where we go back in time and look at the sales for last month.

Marvel brought in the most dollars. Even though it seems like nearly everyone hated The Secret Empire, the first book still sold more than anything else. Will be interesting to see if it goes down in the following months.

Looking at the charts, Marvel's strategy of releasing a bunch of books with #1 on the cover is working. Marvel had 6 books in the top 10, DC had 3, and Image had 1. To battle the barrage of first issues from Marvel, DC was able to stay in the Top Ten with their Batman/Flash crossover event "The Button". The power of Watchmen is strong in 2017. Images only book in the top ten was The Walking Dead, coming in at #10.

The other publishers don't even show up until IDW lands a spot at 95 with Neil Gaiman's American Gods issue 3.

Check out the data attached. It's got some interesting, exciting, and disappointing information.

Apparently, the cause of death was Leukemia. West died yesterday, June 9th, and news just got in.

>Gwar Orgasmageddon #1

>Writer: Maguire, Matt


>Artist: Sawyer, Jonathan Brandon


>Cover Artist: Sawyer, Jonathan Brandon


>From the depths of outer space to the frozen wasteland of Antarctica, punk rock and heavy metal's most shocking and blasphemous band of intergalactic blood spewing alien monsters has returned to kill everything and respect nothing in the pages of GWAR: Orgasmageddon! Banished to the past by the cold and calculating Mr. Perfect, the heroes of GWAR trample through time like a deranged Bill and Ted on bath salts - antics ensue as they stomp and smash and shape human history to what we accept as our current reality. Co-written by GWAR themselves and Matt Miner (Toe Tag Riot, Critical Hit), GWAR: Orgasmageddon is a love letter to comics, grindhouse movies, and heavy metal - sure to appeal to the most die-hard fan and the comics fanboy/fangirl intrigued by the prospect of social awareness drowned in geysers of blood and alien goo.

>Iceman #1

>Written by Sina Grace.


>Art by Alessandro Vitti and Leonard Kirk.


>Cover by Kevin Wada.


>Bobby Drake has been in the super hero game longer than most. But while reflecting on what he's accomplished over the years, he realizes that the legacy he's built is a few good one-liners and a string of failed relationships. Not only that, but now a younger version of himself has emerged from the timestream and he's more put together than Bobby ever was: already a world-class hero in his own right, but also totally comfortable in his own skin, complete with a relationship with a handsome Inhuman to boot. In this new ongoing series penned by Sina Grace (Burn the Orphanage, Self-Obsessed) and drawn by Alessandro Vitti (SECRET WARRIORS), Bobby realizes that the time is never or now, and sets out to build a life and legacy he can be proud of…and be the best ICEMAN he can be! Rated T+ Cover price $3.99.

Have any of you seen this yet? I saw that it's getting good reviews, but how good could it POSSIBLY be? I know for sure it's not better than the 2009 one, and it's a wonder woman movie set in WW1.

I have absolutely no clue why the reviews are so high. Are the critics biased? Is rottentomatoes? Is it just women? I didn't even know the movie was fucking out since no one I know has seen it.

If the trinity weren't a thing, would she make a better member of the JLA than Wonder Woman?

For reasons other than her 10/10 rack

 No.734

Also her backstory would need a semi-rewrite to compare with the likes of Superman, Batman, GL and the Flash, but if you just had her effectively fall out of a hypertime portal, that would be fine. She just has the problem of not having a history or rogues gallery thanks to countless rewrites and ALWAYS being on a team.

She's just so much better than wondy.
