Amazing Heroes Top 100

a propos of nothing:

In a truly horrible old issue of the Fantagraphics fanzine Amazing Heroes (cover feature on the 1980s post-Kirby Eternals comic book for god's sake), we find this truly horrible top 100 list of comic book sales from January 1985. The most interesting thing to me today is that Superman (#92) sold less than Cerebus (#85) and that World's Finest (#99) sold less than Muppet Babies (#98). This in the same month that issue #2 of the original Crisis on Infinite Earth miniseries was on sale (#3) leading up to the death of Supergirl and the John Byrne revamp of Superman:

Those were the 80s!
