    Thank you!!! That website is fascinating for so many reasons!

You're welcome

I think I should add it to the links at the top of the section of the board. There's another site that if you put in the Comic title and issue #, it will tell you what else came out that month. May add that one too.

    Funny, I always thought FF was #1 faster and longer...

I keep that site bookmarked because it's interesting to see just how well a title did. The work to find data that far back is a bit tedious because you would have to have a copy of the comic for the month they published it. I do have the Fantastic Four DVD that has over 500 comics and luckily they simply scanned pages in. It's not digital images. So it includes the letters pages and the ads.

I think what those charts show is that Marvel's monster titles and Millie the Model were their top sellers. But it's hard to judge just when the Fantastic Four sales started to increase. I'm sure they may have held Marvel's #1 spot for a while before ASM.

It would take a while before Marvel finally did overtake DC.
