    It's been awhile since sales figures were posted. Thought I'd do it again since I've noticed I haven't seen any IDW Beast Wars books at my comic shop and very few of the main Transformers line.

    Here are the past few months, showing the Top 10 and how IDW did that month with Transformers and how their other titles stack up. Also included any other Publisher that used Transformers (Marvel, etc)

    Wait so WWH #4 only sold 148,610? Not that I'm a big fan of the comic I just thought comics sold more than that in general for a number one spot....

    So the hardcore TF comic market appears to be about 15000 people?

    I'd've though there were more. Very interesting.
