Punisher 2099 Sales Figures
Circulation as Reported in Publishers' Statements of Ownership
Filed with the United States Postal Service
Punisher 2099 is another title from the 2099 alternate future line from Marvel in the early 1990s.
Much like the original character — who began as a villain in Amazing Spider-Man #129— the Punisher of 2099 is driven by revenge against the criminals who killed his family.
The series started out very strongly after a preview in Punisher War Journal #50; the first issue went to two printings. Like most of the 2099 titles, the downturn in comics during the mid-'90s led to faltering sales in the year to follow, leading ultimately to the series' cancellation in late 1995.

Understanding Statements of Ownership
The figures above are taken directly from the annual Statements of Ownership, Management, and Circulation filed by publishers with the United States Postal Service. The sales figure is the Average Paid Circulation figure and includes all copies sold through newsstands, comics shops, and postal subscription.
