    DC Comics

    10/2005: Infinite Crisis #1 (of 7) -- 249,265 -- [268,458]
    11/2005: Infinite Crisis #2 (of 7) -- 207,564 (-16.7%) -- [224,068]
    12/2005: Infinite Crisis #3 (of 7) -- 188,853 (- 9.0%) -- [216,727]

    02/2006: --
    03/2006: Infinite Crisis #5 (of 7) -- 201,855 (+10.5%)

    For the fifth time in a row, INFINITE CRISIS breaks the 200K barrier. Which means it's the most successful direct market title in at least nine years ("at least" because numbers before 1997 are hard to come by).

    More significantly, first-month sales actually went up in March compared to issue #4, and all previous issues made the Top 300 chart again, selling between 3,651 (#1) and 8,139 (#4) copies, underscoring that the story is still generating demand.

    INFINITE CRISIS is a home run for DC, obviously.

    (36) JSA
    02/2006: JSA #82 -- 54,234 (+ 8.3%)
    03/2006: JSA #83 -- 51,991 (- 4.1%)

    It's "One Year Later," but minus the artwork of George Pérez, who illustrated issue #82. As a result, sales take a step down. These are still great numbers, however, so it's safe to assume that the book's upcoming cancelation in July is not due to low sales, but because they have yet another relaunch waiting in the wings. How long can it be now before the trick gets old (again)?

    DC MONTH-TO-MONTH SALES: January 2006
    posted 03-17-2006 05:10 PM

    The "Infinite Crisis" crossover still purring like a kitten and the big "One Year Later" reboot just round the corner, January was, understandably, another very quiet month for DC Comics, in terms of new titles. The publisher's top-selling new title in January was the DAY OF VENGEANCE: INFINITE CRISIS SPECIAL one-shot. Other than that, the limited series SGT. ROCK: THE PROPHECY and ELFQUEST: DISCOVERY debuted, along with the new Vertigo title THE EXTERMINATORS.

    An overview of's statistics can be found here:


    10/2005: Infinite Crisis #1 (of 7) -- 249,265 -- [261,365]
    11/2005: Infinite Crisis #2 (of 7) -- 207,564 (-16.7%) -- [215,259]
    12/2005: Infinite Crisis #3 (of 7) -- 188,853 (- 9.0%) -- [195,771]
    01/2006: Infinite Crisis #4 (of 7) -- 182,633 (- 3.3%)

    These numbers speak for themselves, really. Even though it keeps losing steam as a crossover in January, INFINITE CRISIS itself is tremendously successful for DC, particularly considering its $ 3.99 price tag, and sales are holding up relatively well.

    The three previous issues also made the chart in January. selling another estimated 2,121 (issue #1), 3,818 (#2) and 6,918 (#3) copies.

    12/2005: Infinite Crisis #3 (of 7) -- 188,853 (- 9.0%)

    The book's sales seem to be finding their level quickly. While it's still lost more than 60,000 units between issues #1 and #3, the percentage drops are actually more gentle than those of other recent high-profile DC launches. Retailers seem to have a lot of confidence in the book so far, and it's obviously a big money-maker for the company, especially given its cover price of $ 3.99.

    One also shouldn't underestimate the ongoing and very enduring boost INFINITE CRISIS and its many precursors have been giving to the majority of DC's mainstream titles, most notably SUPERMAN and WONDER WOMAN. INFINITE CRISIS isn't just tremendously successful as a limited series, but as a crossover as well.

    On the other hand, December marked the first month since DC began the drum roll for INFINITE CRISIS in which several titles didn't noticeably profit from taking part in the crossover or its off-shoots, which might suggest that the interest in INFINITE CRISIS -- at least so far as the crossover aspect is concerned -- has peaked for the time being. The coming months should bring more clarity in the matter.

    Like the two previous issues, INFINITE CRISIS #3 was shipped in two different cover editions, for the record, one drawn by George Pérez, the other by Jim Lee. Issue #2 made the chart again in December with 3,877 additional copies, issue #1 with 2,191.

    O melhor dos quadrinhos nos Eua em 2005
    Por José Antônio Mansur — Quarta, 4 de janeiro de 2006

    2005 foi o ano em que Marvel e DC – as duas grandes editoras americanas – mais monopolizaram o mercado de quadrinhos americanos em tempos recentes. Dessa forma, houve pouco espaço para os independentes brilharem – com poucas exceções. Aqui vai uma lista dos melhores quadrinhos publicados na terra do Tio Sam no ano passado:


    Melhor artista:
    Phil Jimenez (Otherworld, Infinite Crisis) – A sombra de George Pérez não paira mais sobre Jimenez. O artista tem se aventurado a escrever revistas como Otherworld e ainda fez uma arte magnificamente detalhada nessa minissérie e em Infinite Crisis. Também dignos de nota: John Cassaday (Surpreendentes X-men), Mark Buckingham e Steve Leialoha (Fábulas), Ed Benes (Aves de Rapina), Bryan Hitch (Os Supremos) e Frank Quitely (WE3).

    DC Comics' Infinite Crisis revisits 1985 successes
    By Joseph Szadkowski
    January 28, 2006

    INFINITE CRISIS #3 (Perez Cover) (Dec 2005)
    DC Comics
    Since the death of the Elongated Man's wife, Sue Dibny, in the spring of 2004, DC Comics has put its fans into an emotional and multilayered story crossing over most of its best titles (around 78 comic books, to be more exact), which has led up to the current, universe-shattering developments in this monumental seven-part miniseries.

    Billed as the sequel to the Crisis on Infinite Earths miniseries of 1985, in which DC aggressively combined its multiple versions of Earth into one, with some of its heroes perishing in the process, the current event and all of its subplots are bound to give the confused, casual comic-book fan an eye-watering headache. (I review a few of the trade paperbacks below to shed light on the epic.)

    I'll readily admit that I have only a slight idea of what is going on here, but it sure looks exciting as I read such mighty dialogue as "being the only survivor of a reality that never existed" and "the very fabric of existence has shifted."

    The story of Infinite Crisis thus far offers the end of the Justice League, a Power Girl epiphany, the destruction of the Freedom Fighters, the Spectre savoring vengeance, Brother Eye wreaking havoc on the metahumans and a despondent Joker not being offered the chance to join the Secret Society of Supervillains.

    As a team of creators including Geoff Johns, Phil Jimenez, Andy Lanning and George Perez leaves its mark on the unfolding story, it's obvious heroes and villains will continue to die, multiple versions of Superman will be right in the middle of the mess, and comic-book fans late to the game will spend lots of cash to find out what is going on and what is going to happen.

    Infinite Crisis #3 Review
    Posted: Monday, January 16
    By: Michael Bailey


    Geoff Johns has once again turned in a solid issue. From the opening scene where Aquaman puts the Society on notice that he wasn't going to take any more of their guff (by shoving a spear through King Shark's chest, which I've always thought was a great way to let your enemies know you mean business) to the rather heart wrenching scene of Wonder Woman telling her sisters to go into hiding, Geoff gives us a roller coaster ride of a comic. This series continues to be a great mix of action, character, story and little fan moments that blend into a near-perfect harmony.

    The scene with the Shadowpact was great, but that could be the unadulterated Superman fan in me loving that one page shot of Superman catching that building. This served to further the sense that Geoff began last issue regarding Superman getting off his ass and doing something productive. Geoff played him just right too. Superman came off as an example and pretty nice guy too, which is the best way to present the character because if he says or does too much, he comes off as kind of an overbearing, preachy stick in the mud. Also there was that kid finding Blue Beetle's Scarab, which should make this comic a first appearance if nothing else.

    News: Sales Figures For Top Comics in Dec

    January 16, 2006 12:49 pm
    21 of 23 Top Comics Down in December
    Infinite Crisis Still #1
    January 16, 2006

    Comic store sales of the top comic titles were overwhelmingly down on a piece basis in December, with 21 of the 23 continuing series in the top 25 showing issue-over-issue sales declines. Infinite Crisis held at #1, with the third issue at 188,853 copies, only a modest 9% drop vs. the second. Marvel published the only two titles showing increases, but one of those, X-Men, was an artifact of its shipment earlier in the month than the previous issue; sales were actually down vs. the issue that shipped around the same time in November. So only Marvel Knights Spider-Man, of all the titles in the top 25, actually had sales that were anything to celebrate.


    The top 25 comic titles in December, with our estimates of the number sold to North American comic stores by Diamond Comic Distributors, are:

    188,853 INFINITE CRISIS #3 (Of 7)
    162,993 ALL STAR BATMAN & ROBIN #3
    124,300 NEW AVENGERS #14

    We are estimating actual sales by Diamond U.S. (primarily to North American comic stores), using Diamond's published sales indexes and publisher sales data to estimate a sales number for Batman (the anchor title Diamond uses in its calculations), and using that number and the indexes to estimate Diamond's sales on the remaining titles. We can check the accuracy of our numbers by comparing the Batman number that we calculate using multiple data points; our numbers for Batman are within 1/10 of 1% of each other, ensuring a high degree of accuracy.

    DCD (Diamond Comics Distributors) released their monthly Direct Market sale charts and Market Share report Friday, this month for titles that went on sale in December 2005, and like last month, DC and Marvel Comics split the charts. DC had the two top selling comic books and graphic novels of the month (and 4 of the top 5 comics), while Marvel’s strength in the overall Top 20 comic book chart (14 of 20, identical to November) helped it take both Market Share categories.

    As expected, Infinite Crisis held onto the top comic book sales position with its 3rd issue, followed by Miller and Lee’s All-Star Batman & Robin the Boy Wonder #3.

    Bursting at the Seams


    Amid the chaos and sh-t blowing up throughout much of the issue, their meeting is both touching and tragic. Superman confronts Batman, showing him the dark shadow of a man he’s become. At the same time, he offers to save him with the misguided idealism of the Earth Two heroes. It feels like two trains about to collide, and you know that everything can only end in tragedy.

    Phil Jimenez and CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS penciller George Perez join forces on this issue, and they create a complex, stunningly detailed milieu. God help you if you haven’t kept up thus far in this series, because there’s almost too much happening -- both visually and narratively. Amazingly enough, Geoff Johns and the editorial staff at DC have managed to keep this from falling apart into a convoluted mess. Those that have kept up for the past year or so will find this issue compelling and, ultimately, rewarding. Those that haven’t, uh, I guess should borrow a huge stack of books that starts sometime last year. Thus far, it’s been worth it.

    By Koppy McFad

    The Superman of Earth-2 and the Superboy of Earth-Prime make their move to recruit more superheroes to their campaign to change the universe. But that is just part of a wider story with the Secret Society turning against itself, the Amazons making their last stand, the Spectre destroying Atlantis and other diverse events which are mysteriously linked somehow. In fact, too much of this story is linked to other comics, be it the various "Crisis" miniseries that preceded it or even the original "CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS." It must be difficult to newcomers to follow what is going on. The original CRISIS miniseries was part of a story involving dozens of other titles as well but not so much that it could not be enjoyed on its own. The art in this issue has improved but at times, is just too busy for its own good.

    INFINITE CRISIS #3 $3.99 (Geoff Johns / Phil Jimenez)

    I realize that it’s early yet and that there are still four more issues to go after this one, but already I’m of the mind that DC knows how to put together a bit crossover event.

    Not that DC is perfect. They’ve had their mistakes in the past as well. For every Crisis... event there are also events like “Bloodlines”, “Legends”, “Armageddon 2000,” and “Zero Hour.” I mean, come on, does anyone fully understand the concept behind “hyper-time?” Maybe, but they’d probably have a heck of a time explaining it to others. Besides, continuity can be enough of a hurdle as it is, so why add several more layers of complexity.

    But I digress...

    This is supposed to be a POSITIVE column, and for the most part it is, but it’s hard for me to say how much I like Infinite Crisis without mentioning the fact that this is how a massive, company-wide crossover SHOULD be done. As I read this book I can see how DC has been building up to this moment. I’m not talking months of preparation, but years.

    Every major crossover is heralded as something epic, but rarely is that really the case. Infinite Crisis is the real deal.

    Bob Wayne, Greg Rucka, Dan DiDio and Joan Hilty were on the Infinite Crisis panel at Wizard World Chicago. Not a lot of new announcements were made, but the panelists did say that Ted Kord, Max Lord, Sue Dibny, and Barry Allen would not be making a return to the DCU after the Infinite Crisis.

    The new 52 weekly series is directly spun out of events occurring in Infinite Crisis #4, which ships in March of 2006. There will be multiple teams on 52 to ensure that it's a continuous event and will come out on time.

    DC announced that fan favorite artist George Perez will be drawing all the seven covers of Infinite Crisis.

    There was cryptic news that Keith Giffen is working on a new series, but the publisher would not confirm what it was about or who was featured in the comic.

    DCU continuity will be sustained after the Infinite Crisis.

    These titles are unaffected by Infinite Crisis: Brave and the Bold, Plastic Man, the All Stars line, and Legion of Super-Heroes.

    These characters are not coming back to the DCU: Ted Kord, Barry Allen, Maxwell Lord, or Sue Dibny.

    When asked about a possible new Blue Beetle, the panelists said, "If there is a new Blue Beetle, it won't be Ted Kord."

    Donna Troy was one of the most beloved members of the DC Comics Teen Titans. Fans mourned her death in the "Graduation Day" mini-series and rejoiced when DC announced the four-issue "DC Special: Return of Donna Troy" mini-series by writer Phil Jimenez and artist Jose Garcia Lopez. However, when some readers picked up the first issue of the series they found it wasn't quite what they expected and some were left confused. CBR News chatted with Jimenez by phone last week for some clarification and background on the series and some hints on how it ties into the looming "Infinite Crisis."


    After the DC Universe settles down from the events of "Infinite Crisis," readers can expect appearances from Donna in a monthly DC book. "I think there's been some talk. The plan had always been that once she was reintroduced she would be placed in either the 'Titans' or 'The Outsiders.' I suspect it will be one of those books."

    Jimenez has enjoyed crafting a story that reintroduces one of his favorite characters and places her at the forefront of the big events in the DC Universe. He urges readers who may be confused or have questions to stick with the book. The final two issues of "The Return of Donna Troy" should tie things together for them nicely. "I just hope readers remembers that it is a four-issue series," Jimenez said. "Just because everything wasn't explained in issue one doesn't mean it doesn't pan out over the other three issues."

    News: DC Editorial To Change After Infinite Crisis

    The changes coming to the DC Universe following Infinite Crisis won’t be limited just to the characters. DC Executive Editor Dan DiDio has confirmed for Newsarama that, following the seven-issue Infinite Crisis miniseries, DC editorial will see a significant change as well.

    In a brief chat with Newsarama Friday morning, DiDio initially explained some of the rationale behind the upcoming “One Year Later…” jump all the DCU titles will experience coming out of Infinite Crisis between February and March of 2006.

    “We had an editorial meeting to talk through Crisis - how we’re going to handle it, how we’re going to coordinate it, and how we’re going to follow it,” DiDio said. “When the suggestion was made by editorial of maybe doing a leap ahead in storylines, it gave us an interesting hook that would really play nicely, because it would allow you to get back into your characters in their own individual stories again, without being made to feel that they’re all coming from the same place and the same time. With everything running as tightly as it will be in Crisis, the last thing we wanted to do was follow it by having all the series coming from the same exact place, and the same exact time, because that can get a little redundant. This allows for every series to have its own individual identity again, and allows us to get the balls back up in the air as quickly as possible and get right back into the heart of what makes each character special.”

    The former Titan resurfaces with clues to 'Crisis'.

    It's a brand-new dawn for Donna!

    Originally Wonder Girl Donna Troy, seemingly killed in Titans/Young Justice: Graduation Day mini-series but instead transported to a strange world, roars back to life in DC Special: The Return of Donna Troy. written by Phil Jimenez with art by Jose Luis Garcia and George Perez, the four issue mini also serves as the official prologue to October's Infinite Crisis mini-series (drawn by Jimenez and written by Geoff Jones).

    "This series sets Donna Troy up as a major player in the Crisis itself," the writer says. "It also connects to the cosmic events of the Rann/Thanagar War and the Teen Titans and the Outsiders. We're using her background and history to explain why she's so pivotal to the DC Universe, and why she, more than anyone else, has to be in the role she's about to take on."

    Plus August's issue #3 is girl-on-girl action when Donna tangles with current Wonder Girl Cassie Sandsmark!
