    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]
    01/2006: Infinite Crisis #4 (of 7) -- 182,633 (- 3.3%) -- [207,297]
    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)?

    No new issue of INFINITE CRISIS was released in February, but the book keeps showing significant re-order activity. Issues #1 to #4 sold an additional 3,469, 4,718, 15,030 and 16,525 copies, respectively.

    Given that's estimates are always a wee bit on the low side, it's safe to say that issue #4 has broken the 200K barrier -- which may well make INFINITE CRISIS the first title since the mid-nineties to generate sales of more than 200,000 in the direct market with four consecutive issues. Needless to say, it's a big whopping success.

    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.

    In the Line of Fire: Infinite Crisis #4
    Posted: Monday, February 27
    By: David Wallace


    I’m fully aware that it’s my own lack of familiarity with the DCU which has hampered my enjoyment of this latest issue, and if an event of the same magnitude and scope were to happen in the Marvel Universe, I’d likely be far more forgiving of any lack of concessions to new readers. Indeed, I’m looking forward to Marvel’s Civil War crossover later this year, and I’ll likely find it far easier to follow as a whole due to my affinity for Marvel comics. All I would say is that if any readers have been unsure of whether to try this Crisis out for themselves (and there must be, what, three of you) then be warned: either read up on the lead-up to this series extensively or give it a miss, as John’s isn’t writing a new-reader-friendly book here....

    I do know that I’m hooked. I do know that Phil Jiminez, George Perez, and Ivan Reis are doing a phenomenal job of illustrating this powerful story. I also know that every issue so far in this series has been better than the next and all of the hype that led up to it was well worth it. I don’t know what direction DC will be taking after this series reaches its conclusion. It could be a better, brighter, more heroic place or a darker place than ever before. There are some who long for a return to simpler times for DC’s heroes, but I don’t know if these same fans will be around if that actually happens. All I know is that, whatever the outcome, I’m going to be there, sticking with this Crisis till the end.

    The ending was unexpected, at least for me. A lot of fans have been speculating that the multiverse was returning, and I didn’t agree. I still don’t, and I believe that this is just part of the story. This series strikes me as a look at the past before moving forward, and reinstating the multiverse doesn’t seem the way to go if that is DC’s aim. Still, it made for a great cliffhanger ending, something Geoff Johns excels at.

    In the end, I really liked this issue of Infinite Crisis. The story is moving along nicely and the fight between Superboy Prime and, well, everybody was just freaking awesome. The story continues to take unexpected turns, and I honestly can't say for sure what I think is going to happen next. The George Perez cover for the next issue promises a fight between the two Supermen, which has me pretty psyched. Geoff Johns and crew continue to deliver a fun series, and I can only hope that the next three issues will be just as good.

    Page 1:
    Q: Who are…?
    A: The Brotherhood of Evil. Originally, the enemies of the Doom Patrol, they transferred their grudge over to the New Teen Titans in the Marv Wolfman/George Perez days, and since, have been a general pain in the ass all around the DCU. And yeah, judging from the talk about making Nightwing claw out his own heart and Monsieur Mallah (the gorilla) eating it, they’re a little…unstable.

    Q: Who’s doing the Emperor from Star Wars thing on the dashboard?
    A: Deathstroke, Slade Wilson. Yeah, Brain and Slade go way back.

    Q: Why does Deathstroke have a mad-on for Nightwing?
    A: The two have a long history, dating back to The New Teen Titans days, but more recently, Nightwing and Slade came to a truce of sorts, where, if Deathstroke kept the meta-powered villains out of town, Nightwing would train Slade’s daughter Rose (aka Ravager) to be a villain. Sneaky son of a gun that he is, Nightwing trained her to be a hero instead – she never noticed the lesson books had “Hero” crossed out and “Villain” written in.

    Now that you’ve had some time to think I want to hear from you and what is geeking you out the most about the coming year. Is it the resolution to Spider-Man: The Other, DC’s “One Year Later” event or the end of Infinite Crisis, the return of the Astonishing X-Men, Grant Morrison/Jim Lee relaunching Wildcats, or the conclusion of Planetary that is exciting you the most?

    Whatever it is, I’d like to know about it, but for now, let’s see What Looks Good…

    INFINITE CRISIS #4 $3.99 (Geoff Johns / Phil Jimenez)

    I don’t know about you, but this book/event is shaping up to live up to all of the hype that has been surrounding it. I don’t want to say all that much about what happened last issue because I don’t want to give anything away (I mean, wow, who say THAT ending coming), but I am very eager to see what happens next. It’s obvious that some major plans have been put into motion and just like the original Crisis... this one is setting itself up to be quite a tragedy.

    That’s why I like this book so much. A good tragedy is one where the villains are really just people with good intentions going about things in the wrong way.

    Another period of waiting has ended, and Infinite Crisis #4 hits today, with major developments in the future of Bludhaven, Superboy (both Prime and DCU), revelations about Alex Luthor's plans, as well as perhaps, the fruition of his mission.


    DC Executive Editor Dan DiDio has stopped by again to take questions about Crisis, 52, One Year Later and more. As a word of warning to those for whom this is, Dan's not going to give away story points, though he probably will tease incessantly...and yeah, he was probably smiling when he did it.

    All right - enough intro. Let's get this baby rolling.

    Newsarama: Just to start off, let’s talk time-frame again – by the end of issue #3, pretty much the entire DCU is embroiled in the Crisis, correct?
    DD: At the end of issue three we have a clearer idea of what the ultimate threat to the DC Universe is and by the middle of issue four, there is a call to arms that gathers the largest assemblage of heroes in the series so far. It’s not until issue five that everyone is operating on a single timeline.

    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."
