A-ha! I Was Right!

I was talking a little while back about how I wasn't keen on going away from the pamphlet format because of the problems it could cause my local comic shop. Today, I just read Brian Hibbs' latest "Tilting at Windmills." Among other things, Hibbs notes...
Here’s the thing: while Big Super-Huge Sales on books are always nice, generally speaking consistency is more important for the comic book store. Or, to put it another way: I made more money in 2006 from the sold-very-poorly Firestorm, with 12 issues released, than I did from the It’s-in-the-Top-Twenty All-Star Batman because only one single issue was released in all of 2006.

Read that one more time: I made more money in 2006 from Firestorm than a Batman comic by Jim Lee and Frank Miller.
This is what I'm sayin'!
