Comic Book Single-Issue Sales JUMP 22% In February. Everybody Drink!

Comic books! Don’t put em down, they ain’t dead yet. Or, at least that’s what I extrapolate from the news that single-issue sales rose 22% this past February.

Robot 6:

Single-issue comics sales last month were up 22.26 percent over February 2011, and graphic novels were up 15.6 percent, making for a good month for publishers and retailers. (Of course, there were five Wednesdays in February, which may have something to do with it.) As in previous months, DC sold the most comics but Marvel, with higher cover prices, topped its competitor in terms of dollar share.

Okay so many we were cheating with the five weeks. Just let me have this.
