Comics sales down in May

ICv2’s May Sales figures are up and it isn’t all that fab:

Sales of periodical comics declined in May for the fourth month in a row posting a 6% drop compared with sales in May of 2007 when, led by the Death of Captain America, some 15 titles sold over 100,000 copies (versus just 7 in May 2008). Still periodical comics posted a 7% gain from April, though it was not enough to compete with May 2007. For the second month in a row graphic novel sales declined and actually dropped more precipitously than periodical comics.

John Mayo’s monthly sales analysis is also up at CBR, and SECRET INVASION #2 beat FINAL CRISIS #1 200,344 to 159,036 by his estimates. That is not good news for DC.
