The October Diamond numbers won’t be out for a few days, but in advance I have posted the October 1998 and October 2003 figures for comparison. October 2003 was topped by the second issue of the long-awaited Avengers/Justice League crossover — though in a sense, Avengers/JLA #2 was actually the first issue with that name. (Following past practice, the publisher actually printing and distributing the issue got top billing — and Marvel and DC alternated publication on this series. So the next issue was JLA/Avengers #3, the third issue of the storyline but actually the second issue by that name.)
Anyway, these two pages are up in advance, bringing the site above the 20,000 sales-figure mark; a raft of months will be up soon.
