Lookin' good.

I'm not really feeling this Zombie arc, and I'll be glad when the Fantastic Four business is over... Overall though, sales are looking good. The Civil War and Initiative effect continues.


Yo, I'm Serious

Sales are good, but it's not enough to merely mention the crossover effect. It needs to be illustrated, like so:

Black Panther #17 - 27,993
Black Panther #18 - 69,912 - Civil War (& Wedding)
Black Panther #19 - 28,372
Black Panther #20 - 26,585
Black Panther #21 - 34,257 - Civil War
Black Panther #22 - 47,556 - Civil War
Black Panther #23 - 54,762 - Civil War
Black Panther #24 - 59,971 - Civil War
Black Panther #25 - 56,479 - Civil War
Black Panther #26 - 51,385 - The Initiative
Black Panther #27 - 52,552 - The Initiative (& Marvel Zombies)
Black Panther #28 - ______ - The Initiative (& Marvel Zombies)
Black Panther #29 - ______ - The Initiative (& Marvel Zombies)

It's unknown as of yet whether #30 will bear a crossover banner on its cover. In any case, come August and #29, there will have been nine consecutive months of cover-advertised crossovers (and 10 out of the past 12 issues). It certainly makes business sense; just look at the sales of the only 2 non-crossover issues sandwiched in the middle.
