Default Walking dead #100 is the best-selling comic of the century

From Image: Robert Kirkman’s Eisner Award-winning THE WALKING DEAD comic series for Image Comics/Skybound reached its milestone 100th issue and instantly sold out of its 383,612 initial orders on July 11th, the same day it was released, effectively becoming the best-selling comic book in initial orders for any publisher since 1997, when Image Comics/Top Cow’s The Darkness #11 was released. THE WALKING DEAD, created and written by Kirkman with art by Charlie Adlard, featuring 13 variant covers for the 100th issue — all sold out — has been the talk of San Diego Comic-Con with a series of events celebrating its release. Kirkman is a partner in Image Comics, the first person invited to join the comic book industry’s premier publisher of creator-owned comics since its inception twenty years ago.

Could that story be any more biased and skewed
I guess using Valiants sales from 1994-1996 would have been a bad idea anyway. I mean, 1.7 million copies sold on some issues may make 380k look whimpy

Don't ask me how much I want to offer. Come with a price in mind. If I don't want it or think it's worth that, I will let you know.
