Consider the Following
It's also setting records digitally. I can't give numbers, but on the first day it set a record for us.
So sayeth Jim Lee
, Co-Publisher of DC Comics and illustrator of Justice League
#1, in an interview with Salon
. Actual numbers would, indeed, be quite the jumping off point for a great deal of analysis, and could even say quite a lot about the future of digital distribution. Lets take a moment and look at all the ways having actual numbers on the reboot's sales might turn out: Could DC have sold more
digital copies than hard copies of Justice League
? Would we see digital numbers fall over time, as newer readers entranced by the reboot's publicity either lose interest or
move to buying from comics stores just like everybody keeps hoping they will? Would we see digital numbers grow
over time, as DCnU titles reach the one-month/dollar-cheaper mark?
