      The annual came out in AUGUST, so that low number is people who picked it up late. The GL Annual came in at #12

        Damn time flies fast.

        Excellent. I actually thought that was the reason but I only thought to check back as far as September. I didn't even think it could be farther, but I should've (#0 and #13 came after). I'll just delete that stupid post.

            I think it may be safe as long as the show is still around. It has sold lousy since the beginning, I think. Expectations for those kids' animated tie-in comics are pretty low.

            Of course I thought the same of the Young Justice comic, and that's now cancelled. So what do I know?

              I think you might be right, though. Lots of kiddie books and quirky stuff (like say IDW's Mars Attacks) seem to have about the same kind of sales. I'm sure they don't print 60,000 copies of the latest GLAS.

                      Hey, at least it selling better than Detective Comics, Action Comics, and Superman.

                      It’s not gonna get cancelled anytime soon I can tell you that much.

                      Hell Marvel has been dominated sales again. The new 52 is turning into a failure and Green Lantern comic books are some of the few DC titles that still sell well.

                      Look at Red Lanterns it’s still in the top 100 after a year. The GL brand is very strong when it comes to comic book sales.

                        No, no cancellation. May be a signal that some folks aren't thrilled with the current direction.

                          Maybe, although considering that Marvel is dominating the top 10, Marvel's NOW line might have something to do it.

                          Also I can't see DC doing anything drastic with GL considering the brand is currently it's third best-selling one after Batman and Justice League (yes all four of the regular GL titles combined sold better than all four of the major Superman titles combined).

                            Seriously doubt it. Marvel Now probably had alot to do with it.

                              Maybe. Sold about 91,000 in October, and 78,000 in November. I can see dropping sales rank wise, but that many copies because of Marvel?

                                Look at the previous numbers you posted. Jun- Aug sold about what was sold in November. I'm sure the jump in sales in Sept and Oct were do to them being a gimmick (the zero issue) and new readers. So again it's not a big deal.
