> #16-20 dealt with the aftermath of House of M,
It did, but it didn't have a House of M banner on it. Just because an arc follows up on an event doesn't make it an event, just as PAD dealt with The Other aftermath in FNSM but that didn't make 70% of PAD's run an event.
> Since when? I almost never see a positive review of Avengers. Unless you mean the buyers who pick the book up even though they hate it, in which case, sure, okay.
We can debate "Oh I hate it but I buy it cause blah blah" some other time, but:
Never dips below 3 webs. I know not exactly a professional review, but it's something.
New Avengers #15 got "must read" and "check it" from IGN: http://comics.ign.com/articles/684/684435p1.html
But for a top selling book, it's safe to assume that most people buying it actually like it. I really don't think there are 70,000 people out there who will buy a book they hate.
> Sure. I just think there's more to it than everyone loving the book except for a handful of cranky Internet people. I'm sure it would still sell perfectly well without the gimmicks, but we have no real indication either way.
By sales, it sure seems that way. Marvel doesn't distinguish between "collector who hates the book" and "loves the book" purchases. That and the Avengers board generally seems to like NA with, as with any media, exceptions.
