This is correct. It would be better to pull date further back.
However, if you sat down and played with the search functions - you could get some solid results for a years worth of data.
Star Wars for example, they have less market ownership when it comes to sketches (compared to Marvel). What's interesting it they have a higher sell through percentage and a higher average price per item. Now just like marvel, without sitting down and fine tuning the search results - it's very generic. However, the results do tell me that there is more demand in Star Wars right now (compared to Marvel). That still doesn't mean there isn't any saturation there - it just means there is less saturation with Star Wars.
