    Glad to see Superman up there in the top ten with Batman. I hope the popular creative team keeps it up.

    Superman will drop like a stone next month. JRJ is a terrible artist. It's not 1984 it 2014.

    John Romita Jr.'s art is pretty strong in this compared to his work in the past couple of years. To each their own.

    With Johns writing, I could draw it and Superman would stay in the Top 20...probably Top 10. I'm glad others are enjoying it, but Harley Quinn's sales never make sense to me

    Can anyone think of why Harley Quinn's sales would have jumped up the chart like that? I know that Eternal has dropped and Forever Evil is over, but it seems odd that it would have moved that far up the chart. There definitely has to be an sales increase there.

    Also an interesting note, Batman and Amazing Spider-man provide a one-two punch at the top of the charts.

    I will say that it's pretty impressive that DC has books up in their 30s making the Top 10, as opposed to relaunched Spider-Man and event (Original Sin) books. A lot more staying power there. Glad to see Detective shooting up with the new team, it's been excellent

    Harley Quinn's success is baffling to me. It even beat out the debut of Geoff Johns and JRJR on Superman. I don't read Harley Quinn, but for those that do, is its high sales justified? Is it really that good of a book?

    It is pretty amazing that DC can do this with books that are high numbered in this day and age. It just goes to show that all this renumbering does nothing.

    Speaking of dropping like stones... ASM is dropping faster than Marvel wants. #3 is more than likely under 100k.

    Even if it was good (and I don't care to find out), sales don't reflect quality.
    All hail Mark Doyle

    I dont know if its good or not but to me its kind of refreshing to have a different book being a consistent top 10 seller. You dont see that to often.

    I absolutely love it and I would like to believe the high sales are justified. It could be slightly boosted by the whole DC bombshells thing or maybe it's because her teaming up with Ivy again for the month, but I don't think its just that. It must be something else.

    It blew my mind when Deadpool took off, and now Harley is somehow a monster hit. IDK

    The 500k thing was PR nonsense. But in any case, maintaining 80k is a big success these days.

    It's good nothing great, I think one of the things that could attribute to charting is that it's self contained and no other book or the HQ book itself has an impact anywhere else.

    And the fact that she probably still has a pretty large fanbase mainly due to Batman TAS.

    You know what does baffle me though? Batman being anywhere near the top with its mediocre storylines, though goes to show how much the Batman name lends to the sells as well.
