Rank 137 for 12/13: TMNT #29 -- 15,532 copies
Rank 159 for 12/13: Villain #8 -- 12,829 copies



Still way too early to say what things will ultimately level out at but even with what we see here it looks fairly promising. About a 50% drop from #1 to #2 isn't to be unexpected, but what's positive to see is that things actually picked up after this drop in #3 by over 3000 copies.

I couldn't be happier here...we finally(at least in 2009 I certainly didn't expect there to be a NEW turtles comics book for real...more like somewhere in the distant foggy future with luck there'll be reprints)...I tell you it feels so good to await a new issue each month again, like in the old days..I only got into getting monthly comic books because of mirage tmnt comics...
and now the book is also SO GOOD and EXCITING...with sales numbers staying anywhere near these marks there must be LOTS of years of the new book ahead!thank you idw amigos!!

Climbing up the ranks a few notches from last month's ranking as well as being the highest selling non-DC/Marvel issue is very encouraging, it seems. Let's hope the quality and quantity of the book stays strong!

Wasn't the series also IDW's top selling property?

If Turtles outsells all their other comics isn't that a good sign?

Yikes. G.I. Joe and Star Trek are both outselling Ghostbusters... that's downright criminal.

It is considering they publish a ton of TF series too.

I'm hoping they keep the TMNT titles to one a month with the occasional special and crossover. My wallet doesn't want to part with more money for multiple books for the same title!

I agree i read city fall about a week ago and i'm completely hooked. I'm now scrambling to get everything leading up to those issues. The bidding is really competitive for this series on ebay and rightly so, It's Amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!.

There is no way they would stop publishing during a movie run. If the first movie does well and sequels are announced....they wouldn't drop the license and give up market share to another publisher. I am sure they are doing fine. When you add up all the $ TMNT brings IDW it has to be decent (Classics, Ongoing, AA, Micros, Ultimate Collections, IDW Limited Offerings, Digital, TPBs...)

very good sales for the new tmnt comics books but sales would have been lot higher if it was released worldwide and not onl in few country. Does IDW realise that they lost thousands of sales by not releasing it in all countries?

I wouldn't be too sure about that, I think the most faithfull TMNT fans are still mostly from US. I could be completely wrong of course. TMNT was a worldwide phenomenon back in the day after all.

Not to come off harsh, but if you paid attention, you would've realized that it was not a decision by IDW but a licensing issue. They actually announced global distribution rights very recently, so you are just complaining about IDW for nothing. You should probably make sure you know what's going on before making presumptions.

I would assume whatever limitations on publications in other countries were a contractual thing with Nick/Viacom... the license to put out what IDW is putting out of TMNT right now in the US is one thing, but as soon as you start talking about worldwide distribution and all that it becomes a different ballpark in legalese.
