Want to be depressed? Take a look at Marc Oliver-Frisch’s analysis of the DC sales figures for February, where good books like The Brave and The Bold are being treated remarkably shoddily by the market:
This book is tanking spectacularly. The Brave and the Bold #10 was the last issue drawn by George Pérez, apparently, so the numbers are unlikely to improve.
To be honest, you can’t blame DC for giving an artist of Pérez’s caliber something else to draw. For whatever reason, people are dropping this book like it was the plague. The year-on-year performance is a disaster by any standard.
I have to ask: Why have orders for the series dropped so dramatically (over 50% in its first year)? It’s a great book with a “name” creative team that consistently delivers on a regular basis. Why aren’t you all reading it, readers?
