If you will recall, from the wonderful world of GlennBeckistan [post linked], Beck offered us astute observations about how he really feels about black people…..in comic books. Last August, Miles Morales was introduced to the Marvel Universe. I myself admit to being cynical (maybe that was my DC Comics bias). But having had kept up with the numbers and popularity of Miles online, the series seems to be going strong.
For the month of August 2012, Ultimate Comics #13 Spiderman came in at #40, selling over 42,000 copies nationwide. This means UCS ended up only 2 spots behind BatGirl #12, and outpaced movie/television comics such as Captain America, the Incredible Hulk, Wolverine, The Fantastic Four, The Mighty Thor, Winter Soldier, Green Arrow, and Punisher.
I am trying to resist the temptation to start reading UCS myself.
