this week's numbers.

According to this site, Casanova 2 held the 196th spot at the top 300 comics of July. Now, according to this other site, we can see Casanova 3 at the 200th spot.

If steady wins the race, until when we get to issue 4 and 5 and the numbers start increasing (because they are increasing).

A monthly book is a completely different beast from all our previous work on graphic novels. The good side is the constant feedback, and the downside is this uncertainty about the numbers.

So far, the numbers have been good, but should we really be that obsessed by them? we should know they're there and hope for the best, but sometimes I think knowing all that about "who sold what" and "that's selling more than this" is not good for the creative mind.

The ideas should come to tell the story, and sometimes they don't come if you're just thinking about something else, like numbers and money.


I'm on page 12 of the Graphic Novel. If all goes well, I should hit page 20 before next week.

Ba's on page 10 of the current issue of Casanova he's doing.

I did 2 submission pages.

Those are the numbers I rather talk about.
