The full report will follow later — an exceptionally busy month here — but the April 2009 sales charts are online here. As expected, they report a significant rebound, helping the market to recover some of the ground lost in the first part of the year. There are also some other factors of interest, about which more in the upcoming report.
In the meantime, a few other updates not mentioned before — with Fantastic Force relaunched at Marvel, a title spotlight has been established here for the single year of Fantastic Force in the 1990s. A small addition, but a trivial note is that it was the "guinea pig" title I used in pitching the Standard Catalog of Comic Books line nearly a decade ago; the printed version looks not too much different from the original mock-up.
Also, many comics from Bluewater on the site had mistakenly been labeled Blue King products (they both have the same three-letter abbreviation at Diamond); these have all been corrected.
More to come...
