DC Sales Skyrocket Following Reboot


     DC Comics' "New 52" issue ones are flying off the shelves, according to recently released sales figures.

     JUSTICE LEAGUE #1, the flagship title which debuted five weeks ago, sold more than 200,000 copies - compared to the 46,000 per issue it averaged prior to the relaunch.

      Other titles, such as ACTION COMICS, BATGIRL, and THE FLASH, have doubled their average sales, selling over 100,000 copies apiece.

      While die-hard DC fans have been responding to the reboot with mixed reactions, it would appear that the company has a success on its hands, if only in terms of dollars and cents.

      DC has yet to release figures for its same-day digital sales.
