Update On “DC Animation” DVD Sales And Comic Book Sales

The DVD release of Batman: Gotham Knight continues to hold strong in its third week or release, accumulating another 39,288 copies sold, bringing it’s total to almost 350,000 in sales. The title, which sold 80,515 copies in the second week of release, continues to be a strong performer thanks to the direct-to-video animated feature’s tie-in status with the theatrical hit The Dark Knight. Keep in mind the number does not take into account rental numbers, OnDemand numbers, or legal download numbers. Batman: Gotham Knight is expected to sell consistently throughout the remainder of the year, and receive additional sales interest when The Dark Knight arrives on Blu-Ray and DVD in December 2008.

Meanwhile, the final issue of the comic series Justice League Unlimited, issue #46, saw a slight increase in sales along with The Batman Strikes and Legion of Super Heroes In The 31st Century. Justice League Unlimited is the latest “DC Animated” comic series to come to an end, but not the last. Both The Batman Strikes! and Legion of Super Heroes In The 31st Century will be ending later this year. Below are the total estimated sales numbers for the animated comics that shipped in June 2008.

Justice League Unlimited #45 – 8,434
The Batman Strikes! #45 – 7,118
Legion of Super Heroes In The 31st Century #14 – 6,565

Sales of the “DC Animation” comics are expected to dwindle for the remainder of the year due to multiple series cancellations. The Batman Strikes is scheduled to end with issue #50 in October 2008, with Legion of Super Heroes In The 31st Century following right behind it, ending with issue #20 in November 2008. DC Comics has no plans to currently revisit these titles in the near future, with the exception of possible collection releases.

Stay tuned for further news and updates.
