DC Finally Overtakes SJW Marvel as Top Comic Book Company of 2017

Marvel recently fired its SJW Editor in Chief, and cancelled a slew of SJW titles in what butthurt SJWs are calling an apocalypse, but they're still pumping out already-written-and-drawn SJW comics. It won't be until the 2nd quarter 2018 that we'll start to see if Marvel is still an SJW clownshow.

But as for 2017 -- the damage was done. Looking at the entire year, DC beat Marvel.

Looking at the most-ordered comic books in the North American comic market, DC Entertainment had a particularly strong year, with seven of the top 10 issues of the year being published by the home of Superman, Batman and the Justice League. The numbers illustrate how much the market has changed in the past few years -- in more ways than one.

Comparing this year's most-ordered issues with the top 10 from 2014, the scale of DC's success becomes more apparent; just four years ago, not one DC title made it to the list, with nine titles coming from Marvel alone. (By comparison, Marvel takes just three places this year, with one of those due to its inclusion in a subscription mystery box service.)

They mean that Spectacular Spider-Man #1 was included in one of those Loot Crate or Geek Box type services, so there was a big order for that from that company.

If you check the list of the top ten, most of DC's biggest sellers were either Batman, or the Batman-related event "Dark Knights/Metal," or the big event merging the regular DC universe with the Watchmen characters.

DC is a little too Batman-o-centric, I think, for its own health. Fashions change. What happens if (or when) Batman falls out of such high favor?

They really need the rest of the A-list to get closer in popularity to Batman.
