      I'm sure Dynamite would never feel you're too late to support an on-going book (unless they already decided to cancel it, which isn't the case here as far as I know).

      Have you picked up #2 yet?

      • Issue #2 was even better than the first, you've got to hop on that one Stu!

        Also, it's never too late to support a PulpX title no matter how late in the run it is.

            • Miss Fury #4 / Black Bat #3

              Just finished Fury #4. Man, what a book. It strikes a pretty great balance: You don't really know what's going on, but you can still follow it easily.

              It does seem as though things are clarifying though. In other words, I think what she's being told now is solid.

              I have yet to read BB3, but I love that these two books come out on the same day. I find they complement each other very well; I start with the flashy action of Miss Fury then later on will grab a cup of coffee and get drawn into the noir feel of Black Bat. i look forward to these books like I haven't looked forward to a book since...well...Project Superpowers, really.

              • The end of BB3 is nice. A really good cliffhanger.

                  Are you referring to Black Bat?

                  I would thin being above 10, 000 is great for The Spider. I could be remembering wrong, but was it at 5, 000 when Nick Barrucci commented in a thread saying if it stayed there or did better it would continue?

                  How is Waid's Green Hornet doing?

                  Edit: I somehow misread The Shadow as The Spider. Also, I looked it up and Green Hornet #2 was a bit over 10, 000, which I think is surprisingly low for Mark Waid being on it. Not to mention it just being great enough that more people sbould really be reading it.

                  I can't find sales figures for The Spider the last 2 months.

                    I was indeed to referring to Black Bat. I was expecting a drop off, but not that big a drop off.

                    I can't find the Spider either. Geez, I hope it hasn't fallen off the list altogether. By memory, last I see it it was at about 6000.

                    Now I'm sure that this doesn't include digital sales and they are usually only referred to as estimates anyway. I'd be curious to see how the digital sales measure up.

                    • Yikes, that's a huge drop off for The Black Bat from a 16K first issue.....

                      Hopefully it levels out at around 7k or so which should be enough to keep it around for quite a good while.

                      • Wow, what an issue!

                        Everything from the art to the story was top notch, I loved the interaction between the cop and the bat at the end of the issue and I loved the scene where The Black Bat left the "fang" marks in spray paint on the thugs he left the cops. Just epic! The ending of the issue was a huge cliffhanger, basically standing there with all of those guns drawn on him and man.....I got to wonder how he'll get the heck out of this situation.....

                        This books is simply phenomenal and one of (if not) my favorite on store shelves today, keep it up Dynamite and I'll keep on buying!

                        • If I was only allowed to buy one book a month, it would be Black Bat. I love the Fury book too, but Black Bat is exactly what I look for.

                          • Still have yet to actually read Miss Fury #4 but I did read The Black Bat. #3 and it was excellent.

                            Haha, can't believe that Tony actually was going to give silk drugs to "take the edge off", great stuff and lots of amazing action as per usual. The story and plot are really shining in this title.

                              Yeah, that's quite something eh?

                              Maybe this book wouldn't be to the liking of someone who likes his characters to be only black and white, but I like the shades of grey. And hey, for all we know, maybe he was testing him. Regardless, it was a surprising little twist.

                              • I thought I might have some clue as to where they are going with Miss Fury by now, but I'm still baffled (not to say I'm not enjoying it) and have no idea which way the plot might twist.

                                Black Bat isn't really doing much for me so far, it seems a little like re-fried 1980s Frank Miller, but I'll give it until issue 6 (or a new creative team after the first arc) to hook me before dropping it.
