As near as I can tell, roundabouts eighty thousand copies of X-Men sell a month, with about the same number of copies of Uncanny moving, too. So around a hundred thousand people buy X-Books, to the tune of about three hundred grand. The movie made a hundred and three freaking million dollars between Friday and Sunday and another seventeen-ish million on Monday. Unless those hundred thousand X-Men readers went to the theater a hundred and fifty times apiece, there're a whole bunch of people who tripped over themselves getting to the movies this weekend to see something based on something they don't read.
I just find that surprising, since I'm pretty sure the entire Goddamned free world read The Da Vinci Code, and that only cleared seventy-seven million its opening weekend last week.
Who are these people and why don't they read comics?
