...everything's looking pretty good. Thank the Panther God for Civil War. *love*

And note: ICv2 estimates are 15 to 20% lower than the actual orders of the comic (what the creators see on their pay checks).

BP #25 should be in the high-50k range as well, maybe (probably) even in the low-60k's. After that, the FF issues and the Zombie issues should keep it at least in the low-30s/high 20s. At least.

My money's on the mid-to-low 30k's, because there seems to be a fair amount of positive buzz with the Civil War issues, so some of those readers will stick around for a bit, methinks. Of course, most of the people who hated it before still hate it now, and will forever hate it until there's a new writer. So there's nothing new there. But again, those new people that picked it up just to complete their Civil War crossovers will make up for that, I think, and increase the number of readers at least for a few issues.

So with the FF issues, the "Zombie" arc (or issues), and Joe Quesada mentioned Storm playing a part in the X-Men event later in the summer/fall, so probably another X-Men crossover issue or three... so add all that up, and we're clear (steady sales-wise) to at least BP #35, I think.

All praise be to the Panther God. 8\-\)

Yo, I'm Serious

He's an awesome character with a great back story yet the only reason this current run is doing well seems to be tie ins and guest stars. I really wish we could have some issues that actually focus on the BP. The book is called BP after all. Not MTU.
