TRON Comic Issue 2 Sales

By TronFAQ on Tuesday, December 19, 2006 at 2:21 PM
Here is the estimated sales figure for TRON: The Ghost In The Machine Issue #2 from SLG Publishing, according to ICv2 News:

231 7.06 TRON #2 $3.50 SLG 6,661

It placed 231st in the top 300 comics for November, and once again was SLG's best-selling title of the month, just like last time when Issue #1 debuted in April.

TRON #2 was one of only two comics from SLG in the top 300, and far ahead of their other entry on the list: Haunted Mansion #5 at 3,519 copies.

Compared with sales of 8,688 copies for TRON #1, Issue #2 actually beat my expectations and compares quite favorably to the first issue. Yes, sales are down, but not nearly as much as I would have guessed. Taking the absurdly long delay of TRON #2 into account — where TRON fans had to wait even longer than fans of Gargoyles did for their delayed copy of Gargoyles #2 — color me impressed. Still, I'm not counting out the fact that the delay did have an impact, and TRON #2 probably could have sold even better if it had been released on time.

For those of you who haven't picked up TRON #1 or #2, read my reviews of Issue #1 and Issue #2 (which contain some spoilers) to get an idea of what you've been missing. You can order Issue #1 from Amazon.com, or both issues directly from SLG Publishing, if there isn't a local comic store in your area.

If you're a fan of TRON and haven't bought the comic yet, please consider buying it. And keep buying it! The numbers need to remain relatively steady throughout its (tentative) six-issue run. Otherwise, Disney will have another excuse to ignore TRON and never do anything with the property again. (No movie sequel, no more comics, no more games.)
