Mayo Report: 2007-05 Trades

Once again, I’m joined by Chris Marshall of the Collected Comic Library podcast to discuss the sales estimates for the top 100 graphic novels and collected editions for May 2007.

In addition to the usual rundown of the top ten items, Chris and I also discuss:

  • Marvel’s domination of the trade sector of the direct market with Civil War…
  • How The Boys trade paperback did for Dynamite Entertainment and how the first Lone Ranger trade might do…
  • How Amazing Spider-Man’s upcoming shift to thrice-monthly might play out on the trade paperback side of the equation…
  • The upcoming Comic-Con International: San Diego convention…

Like I was saying, I go over a ton of stuff, which includes the following: voice Mail, Daredevil e-mail, the 4th World Omnibus paper issue, Conventions, Podcast Awards, DC and Marvel Solicitations, the Fantastic Four Masterworks reprint price issue, Silver Surfer Essentials contents issue, John Mayo, my June 2007 pull list, new Question of the Month for July and the New Releases of the Week.

To top off the episode, I try to break in a new co-host, My Name Is Earl’s own Jason Lee.

Just Another Fanboy – Episode 43

This week the Super Spouses stay up into the wee hours of the night to bring you the very best in listening pleasure.

Come for a gaggle of news from Heroes Con and Wizard World Philly – Including a report from the convention floor!

Relax during Steeven’s Comic Book Picks of the Week where he gushes over DC’s All New Atom #12 and dribbles slightly over Avengers: The Initiative #3 from Marvel Comics.

Sit a spell while Karen gives her view on a few articles from an issue of People Magazine that was published back in 2000.

Try to stay awake as Steeven makes his very best attempt to say something positive about the book he pulled for his Out of the Box Comic Review.

But most important of all, stay for the debut of the Norman and Gary show . . . you’ll just have to hear it.

So put the kids to bed, kick your feet up, pull your socks off, and pick all of that disgusting gunk out from betwixt your toes as you struggle to get through what’s nothing more than a husband and wife talking about all that stuff they enjoy out of life.
