Loeb Nova and Bendis Guardians of the Galaxy Come In Around 70-80,000 In Sales

Body

6049 Diamond Comics released their top 100 comic books for February 2013 where we see our archnemesis NINO Nova has come in at #14, directly followed by his evil henchmen the Bendis Guardians of the Galaxy 0.1 issue at #15.

The final numbers aren't out yet, but if we compare those slots to January sales that puts them somewhere around 70-80,000.

Not bad sales numbers and pretty much what was expected with all the variants and promo behind the titles.

Of course, McGuinness and McNiven have a lot to do with that as well.

It will be interesting to see what happens to sales as in the case with Nova, fans liked the Black Nova Corps science-fiction aspects of the first issue, but Loeb seems to be going in the opposite direction with a new teen Spider-Man.

And for Guardians of the Galaxy, it has already been announced that McNiven will be replaced as of issue four for an arc.

For perspective, January's Avengers #4 sold around 83,000, with New Avengers #2 at 79,400; those two bookend Nova #1 and GoTG .1.

Possibly a more stable title to compare sales to would be with Green Lantern, as January's #16 came in around 73,000.

Here's the complete list:
