In Topic: Conan Comics Sales Data

From what I know, digital sales are still only a tiny percentage of physical sales. They are a nice boost to the market, but nowhere near as massive as predicted. The vast majority of sales--like more than 90%--still come from traditional outlets of comic shops and books stores.


I don't think including he digital numbers would make much of an impact ... just a slight nudge.

I believe that during the Kurt Busiek run it was selling silly numbers--like in the 100,000 range.


I could be wrong about the exact figures, but that was definitely the good times.


On the plus side ... Dark Horse has several other titles that sell far less. Compared with the 2,000 copies of Furious or Skyman, King Conan isn't looking too bad ...

Very quiet month, with no regular series and no trades I could find on the Top 300:


Almost a 1200 issue drop, really not good. This drops it below the level of the lowest issue of the first series and right at the level of the last issue of POTBC. Is that really what the level for this kind of comic is these days? Unfortunately, it might be.

My guess on the first issue of Conan the Avenger: safe zone is 10K to 10,500. It may spike up to 12K, I'd be really surprised if it's much higher than that.


Wow, that's a shame. For a comic being almost universally praised ...

Awesome work you guys!


Can you help me track down an issue too? I can't remember the details, but Conan was in it ... and he had a sword. Or maybe an axe. And he killed something.

I talked to Fred Van Lente this weekend, and he told me that unfortunately Dark Horse is continuing the 3-issue artist rotation with Conan the Avenger.  Not his decision, and he wasn't thrilled about it, but there it is ...
