IDW has more in-house ads than is healthy. But, they do have external advertisers, which makes the ads they do sell that much more important.

Bumped because I was looking for this thread and it took me forever to dig it up. Interested in old IDW sales figures versus current ones.

How much over-lap is there between readers of each TF series? Will "Unicron" retain all of them, and expand the base?

I hadn't thought about this thread in awhile, but I wondered about sales on the new series. It's doing better than MTMTE and RID did in the last months of both those series, but it has not going back to the stronger sales of years past. Numbers taken from ICv2. So far the book is staying fairly consistent, without constant month to month drops. Up slightly one month, down another. It's an improvement over what they did before.

TRANSFORMERS #1 21,757 (+ 1104 in April)
TRANSFORMERS #2 12,871 (+ 867 in April)
TRANSFORMERS #3 11,358
TRANSFORMERS #4 12,920
TRANSFORMERS #5 10,793
TRANSFORMERS #6 11,489
TRANSFORMERS #7 12,358
TRANSFORMERS #8 11,887
TRANSFORMERS #9 11,431

How are sales of "Transformers" (or IDW as a whole) comparing to the industry? Are they declining at the same rate?
