  JLA/AVENGERS Breaks 200K - Again!
Or not.  Who knows?  But Newsarama has their analysis of September 2003 order numbers up, and their estimates are slightly higher than ICv2's (by about 9%), which puts JLA/AVENGERS #1 over the 200,000 mark in retailer orders.  I still think Marvel's phrasing in the original press release was odd, though, so I'm not breaking out the noisemakers just yet.

But whichever way you slice it, BATMAN #619 was the clear winner in terms of sales.  Which must mean that there were a lot of frustrated fans out there.
