Any way to find out the print runs of these? The original first print and reprints?

Good question!

According to an article on CBR, the print run of WALKING DEAD #100 was 383,612 copies. Other articles seem to echo at least in the ball part of greater than 380K.

As for #101, I couldn't tell you. Here's a couple interesting tidbits about WD #100 that you might not know.

- The Chromium Edition with a $9.99 cover price did not count towards stores initial purchase to qualify for the 1:200 Black and White variant.

- Copies are surfacing of the WD #100 Retailer Appreciation (which were supposed to all be signed by Kirkman) UNSIGNED. Since the signed ones were supposed to be able to be sent in to CGC for the yellow signed grade, now CGC has enacted a time limit to get the copies in to qualify.

Anyone with any more knowledge on this subject is welcome to help me out and chime in!

Walking Dead #101 had a distribution run of 51,700 through Diamond. Add a few thousand to that number for copies distributed for the *few* other distributors still around.

So the print run of 380,000+ copies of #100 only happened because of the multiple covers. Now it's back to business as usual.

SO, that quantity represents all variants?

Some titles have an (MR) in them, what does that mean?

I saw at 117 Walking Dead #100 (MR) 21,987.


These quantities seem very low to me. I am surprised. The last 100 on the list all had print runs less than 10K copies?

I would never have thought that there were so few READERS of comics.

Shocking, isn't it? Keep in mind that these orders only reflect copies shipped through Diamond--but really, how many other avenues of comic distribution is there these days? So these Diamond figures represent over 90% of the print run, I'd say.

Those who say comic readership is on the upswing need to take a look at the numbers on that site.

Because of the popularity of comic super heroes these days (largely due to the movies), I think the market has the potential for a huge boost in readership. LOTS of kids at my son's elementary school are into super-hero characters right now, but don't buy the comics simply because they don't have access. They don't know where to get them (easily). The only place to find them are at the one or two comic stores scattered across town, and most parents aren't savvy enough to make the extra trip to a comic shop for their kids. And what about the many, many, many small towns across America that don't have comic shops? Kids in small towns would love to read about their favorite heroes (ESPECIALLY in small towns where there isn't that much to do in the first place). Sadly, I don't think the publishers will catch a clue and bring back newsstand distribution in earnest.

the (MR) in title stands for Mature Readers. For comics that I believe are intended for audiences ~17 and older. I have one LCS that doesn't restrict purchases based on this and a different LCS only restricts Crossed and Tarot, not Walking dead. Just like video games comics now have recommended ratings.

when i was a kid living in Minneapolis i would walk do to the drug store or supermarket and pick up my spidey books and what ever else looked cool at the time. then i moved to BFE Missouri and had zero ways to buy comics due to the fact stated.
