• Captain Marvel #4 Sales Figures

    ICV2 have published the estimated sales figures for the month of April 2016 for physical comic sales via Diamond to the North American Direct Market, which includes the placement of #4 of Captain Marvel, which features Alpha Flight members Aurora, Puck & Sasquatch in space. Please note that these don't take into account direct postal subscription copies or digital sales:


    77 CAPTAIN MARVEL #4 $3.99 25,156


    For Comparison:

    22 Captain Marvel (2016) #1 $3.99 52,972
    64 Captain Marvel (2016) #2 $3.99 28,962
    69 Captain Marvel (2016) #3 $3.99 28,469
    100 Captain Marvel And Carol Corps #4 $3.99 22,106
    95 Captain Marvel (2014) #4 $3.99 24,062
    90 Captain Marvel (2012) #4 $2.99 24,799
    101 Alpha Flight (2011) #4 $2.99 23,242


    So the title has dropped around 3000 copies since #3.
    The #4 drop is usually a steep one as by time of Final Order Cutoff retailers will have a better idea of how #1 sold in their shop, so this figure will likely be a more stable one.
    #4 only had one variant cover, compared to previous issues which could also account for some of the drop, with retailers needing to order less to hit ratio levels.
    The figure is still above previous incarnations of the series so it's still a good sign, and with Civil War II tie-ins and new writers approaching there could be chance of an increase/less of a steep decline.
