Maybe more, because I have never seen a DDP trade anywhere in England, but all the local book shops that stock "graphic novels" have some IDW Joe stuff. IDW seem to have better bookstore distribution.

There is no way the numbers can be truly similar if DDP cancelled their ARAH run due to sales while IDW is providing top notch talent and adding additional titles. As it has been said, Diamond is only a slice of total sales. It is pretty obvious to me that Joe is pretty profitable for IDW, much more profitable than it was for DDP.
jamarmiller wrote:Definately right, good point......................if we were talking about the whole company, right now I was only talking about the JOE comics sales numbers being the same. DDP is basically gone now because they lost GI JOE, IDW could Lose GI JOE and still be a very healthy company. But again not talking about the company, just the Numbers on GI JOE
