Top 100 Comic Books For May 2013; Jeph Loeb Nova Below 40K?

[page_title]

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:8569:]]

Diamond released the top 100 comic books for the month of May where we see Jeph Loeb’s Nova #4 coming in at #57.

That’s down six spots from April.

Looking at the surrounding titles’ previous issues from April it seems as if Nova is hovering around the 40,000 mark, quite possibly below that as April’s Fantastic Four #7 came in at under 40K.

April’s Nova #3 actually came in at #51 with 40, 548, which was below the same issue number from the previous run by Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning that was swept under the rug to make way for the new direction.

A new creative team comes on board the title with issue six as Zeb Wells and Paco Medina take over.

DnA’s Nova #4 back in 2007 sold 40,159.

On the plus side, Jason Aaron and Simone Bianchi’s Thanos Rising # 3 makes the chart at #20, most likely somewhere around the 70,000 mark.

Update: Loeb’s Nova #4 sells under 40K.
