Godzilla Kingdom of Monsters #1 Yearly Ranking
The yearly comic book sales rankings are out for 2011, and the big news is that the debut issue of the new Godzilla: Kingdom of Monsters series landed at a pretty secure spot!
Coming in at number #102 with 71,700 issues sold, it just barely made it out of the Top 100 list for the year!
To put it into perspective, this Godzilla issue sold more copies than the reboot series' for "Venom" and the "Ultimate Comics X-Men", both featuring far more popular comic book heroes.
Again I have to give credit where credit is due.
IDW comics knows how to market their comics in a spectacular fashion.
Their ad-nauseum variant covers allow each new series to kick off big!
They've taken the classic approach that bigger is better, and (no pun intended) Godzilla is the biggest one of all.
Here's hoping that 2012 stays a strong comic book year for the King of Monsters.
