Estimates for 'The Walking Dead' #100 Over 300K
Could Be Biggest Title Since 2009

Bleeding Cool cited inside sources for its estimate of over 300,000 and the typically reliable Comic Book Resource site confirmed the mammoth number with its own insider’s estimate of 330,000 copies for the initial orders, which would make it not only the #1 comic in July, but, in terms of initial orders at least, the bestselling book since 2009.
53,733 in May, and off course, the $3.99 #100 anniversary issue will be even more of a collectors item. The final tally for the book will include all of the eight regular vriant covers (as well as the 1:200 black & white wraparound variant). It will not include the $9.95 Chromium Cover Variant, but that shouldn’t keep The Walking Dead #100 from being the bestselling comic of 2012 so far.
Keep in mind that the 300k+ number undoubtedly includes all territories and channels, which would make it larger than the numbers typically reported in the Top 300 Comics charts, which are based on U.S. sales only.
