As Marc-Oliver Frisch suggested more than a week ago, there was a glitch in Diamond Comics Distributors’ computer system that led to inflated sales figures for some January titles.
ICv2.com now has the corrected estimates, which now place Hulk #1 in the top spot with about 134,000 copies, and drop Amazing Spider-Man #546 to No. 2.
According to the retailer-oriented news and analysis site, the corrected figures also mean that single-issue sales were up just 1 percent over January 2007, versus the previously reported 7 percent. Graphic novels were up 3 percent instead of 17 percent.
