ANALYSIS
Another two months, another chaotic set of unhealthy numbers.

First up, let's take a look at TAH.. we can pinpoint the WMD storyline which booted the title 6k, peaking eventually at 25k which was the debut of Weapon H. This had a lot of people stumped as speculators looked at Weapon H as the new Venom and did what speculators do. As a result, Marvel decides to spin Weapon H into his own series which will be cancelled and retroactively spun as a four issue mini-series. Retailers dropped 6k copies from the reveal showing little confidence, and once again the book is sub 20k numbers. Since crossing over with Wolverine and gang didn't help, Marvel opted to Return to Planet Hulk. This is pretty much it, IMO, there's not more left to try, which is why now Banner returning is being seriously looked at. Either way, TAH and JenHulk are racing to see who can get to 10k first.

Jen Hulk? Consistently dropping and setting a new low. Big surprise they're going back to She-Hulk to rebrand and backpedaling. Falling from 90k to 17k has to hurt. Much like Carol, forcing a square peg into a round hole didn't make readers like either character more. It's almost like overt, forced change isn't the type of reading people prefer. Organic storylines over time, yadda yadda..

I completely forgot to include Old Man Logan's Maestro arc, so here's a mental note for me to look it up next time.
