Superhero Blockbuster Charts
The Waiting for Their Superman Infographic Details Comic Book Sales

By: Sarah Moore (Star) Jun 12, 12

If you have noticed that a great deal of Hollywood films that have been released in recent years are based on superhero comic books, reading the Waiting For Their Superman infographic will confirm your suspicions.

The chart explores whether or not the influx of blockbuster recreations of classic comics has impacted the number of comic books sold when a new generation of fans become exposed to the material.

In what is described as the ‘blockbuster effect,’ sales of books like The Dark Knight, Watchmen and Iron Man did increase, some more so than others, immediately after the movie was released. However, the increase is short lived and sales usually trickle back down to the numbers from before the film release—especially if the film did not get rave reviews.
