1280-black-pantherjpg-0d86ec_1280w

The Prince of Wakandan made his debut on the big screen in Captain America: Civil War this year and audiences cannot seem to get enough of this character. Black Panther has been making a major impact across a variety of mediums, including comic books.

Marvel Comics’ Black Panther No. 1, which is written by Ta-Nehisi Coates, has already sold an estimated 253,259 issues in its first month. These sales have launched it to become the best selling comic book of 2016 so far. The character of Black Panther could be considered second tier for Marvel but these sales numbers are quite impressive.

Comparing these numbers to other popular Marvel properties, Black Panther still holds up. Marvel’s bestselling solo super hero comics of 2015 included Invincible Iron Man No. 1, which sold 279,000 copies and Spider-Gwen No. 1 which sold 254,000 copies.

Coming in second on the list of best-selling comics for 2016 is Star Wars: Poe Dameron, which sold 175,000 copies.

The Black Panther solo film is scheduled to be released on July 6, 2018.

    I know people love to trump up Marvel these days, but this article is quite devoid of the facts.

    Marvel tends to debut titles at high sales with their “All New #1’s”, but when you look at subsequent months, that’s where the real story unfolds.

    Spider-Gwen has dropped from 254K to 60K copies sold in 6 months.

    Invincible Iron Man dropped from 279K to 47K copies sold in 6 moths.

    I’m more than certain that BP will do the same thing. The level of attrition for Marvel’s books are atrocious, which is why they keep cancelling and relaunching their books, to play off the “#1” fever that their Zombies seem to fall for every time.

      But everything in the article is fact, YOU just added more facts to try to bring down the truth. Dont bring you saltiness from comicbookmovie.com over to here you biased fanboy.

      • SAMURAI36

        1) You’r mother’s a biased fanboy.

        2) I’ve been here on HH since day one. You how’s about you take your nonsense back to CBM?

        3) There is no “truth”, if it’s not complete. Just because you wanna ride high on Marvel’s bozak, doesn’t mean what was said is accurate.

        • Axxell

          You haven’t proven that it’s INaccurate…all you did was point out that sales drop after a while, which doesn’t contradict the article. Just because you’re salty about positive Marvel news doesn’t mean it’s not “factual”.

          • SAMURAI36

            Wow, I totally said they were “lying”. Oh wait, I didn’t. You can’t read.

            And you don’t get to chant down DC whenever you want, and think that no one can do the same for your precious cult.

            The FACT is, Marvel’s comic book sales are in the toilet, especially the books that correspond to the movies and TV shows. If it wasn’t for their “All New #1” gimmick that they keep doing, they would be in a sales slump.

            But you know that already. You’re just trying to pretend like it’s not true, by talking over the facts. Good luck with that.

            dude, DC is sub-par. Just get over it.

            Marvels comic sales are in the toilet yet their the number one publisher. Dc isn’t even the number 2 publisher. So what does that say about dc comic sales lmao

            Oh the irony…

          • SAMURAI36

            Wait, aren’t you the guy that doesn’t know how DC’s Multiverse works? Still waiting for an answer on that subject. Until then, you don’t get to deflect anything.

          • theClownPrinceOfTrolls

            Marvel movies >dc movies
            Marvel tv shows>dc tv shows
            Marvel comics> dc comics
            DC video games>marvel video games.

            1/4 aint bad.

            I’d include animated films but marvel doesnt make animated films their to busy making billion $ films with be level heros.

            While dc couldnt sniff a billion with the trinity doomsday and lex.. lmao

            No, I’m the guy who’s wised up to your transparent attempts to change the conversation to avoid addressing the fact that you DC fanboys fantasize about having a connected universe like Marvel’s. Just because I know what the Multiverse is doesn’t mean I have to chase your red herrings at your whim.

          • SAMURAI36

            Also, we’re not talking about “sales just dropping”. This is a cliff-like attrition of these sales. You can try to paint it any way you want to, but this is a fail.

            I love how you Zombies always wanna talking about the 70% decrease of BVS at the box office, but then wanna pretend that the exact same thing with Marvel’s comics sales is nothing important.

            Good luck with that bias.

      Sammy, I realize this must be trying times, with the whole bvs debacle n’ all, but you need to let it go, and accept the fact, Marvel is DC’s better in all aspects that count! For your own mental health sake, take a break from everything dceu and what you thought they should be. Just take solace in the fact that $868 million is a cute lil’ sum for ne’er do well’s suchas dceu, but to keep obsessing on this fantasy that dceu are equals to THE MCU is unhealthy. Please suggest to your mental health counselor to increase the wattage during your shock therapy + strengthen your daily dosage of lithium.

      Remember, Samuel, I’m here to help.

    • theClownPrinceOfTrolls

      Stop crying

      Marvel is the number one comic publisher and cbm film maker. Nothing you can do about it. FACT

      Can’t believe How fast this movie rose past Batman V Superman after three years of hyping the trinity’s first appearance on screen. Even if BVS broke even, just the “opportunity” cost must be massive.

      What a disaster

      ???

    • theClownPrinceOfTrolls

      Civil War and Deadpool prove that quality films make a lot of money, unlike movies that fail to double their opening weekend gross.

      This will make you feel better.
