I think that almost all of DCs books are having a temporary surge in sales that normally would not be happening in any other year. This is pushing many of the non-X-Men and non-Avengers books down further on the list. Right now, there are 40 DC books ranked higher than Moon Knight, which I seriously doubt would happen under normal circumstances. Moon Knight came in at #83, but I would have expected a top 50 ranking in most other situations. If you look at all of the books - even Iron Man, X-Men, and Wolverine failed to crack the top 50. When was the last time that happened?
My hope is that Marvel takes the DC relaunch into consideration with their titles sales figures and looks at how their books are selling amongst all the other Marvel books, not just the entire list right now.
