TRON Comic Issue 3 Sales

Here is the estimated sales figure for TRON: The Ghost In the Machine Issue #3 from SLG Publishing, according to ICv2 News:

231 7.41 TRON #3 $3.50 SLG 5,372

Interestingly enough, it placed in the exact same spot as Issue #2 did in November. It's 231st in the top 300 comics for January. As well, it was once again SLG's best-selling title of the month. In fact, no other comics from SLG made the top 300 in January.

Yet, compared with sales of 6,661 copies for TRON #2, Issue #3 sales are down by over 1,000 copies. This is disappointing. Now that the comic is back on a more regular schedule, I was hoping the number would hold steady.

For those of you who haven't picked up TRON #1, #2, or #3, read my reviews of Issue #1, Issue #2, and Issue #3 (which all contain some spoilers) to get an idea of what you've been missing. You can order Issue #1 from, or all three 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! If the numbers continue to drop significantly throughout its (tentative) seven-issue run, 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.)
