Tom Taylor responds to attacks that Superman: Son of Kal-El is a blockbuster

Tom Taylor, in a very simple way, responds to those who say that Superman: Son of Kal-El is declining in sales and is not among the best-selling comics of December

John Kent, the son of Clark Kent and Lois Lane and the new Superman of the DC Universereached the headlines of the most general media around the world last year after the hero revealed his sexual orientation and that he had a relationship with Jay Nakamura. Although the story of Tom Taylor, John Timms, Hi-Fi and Dave Sharpe was well received and led to an immediate boost in comic book sales in DCsome reactionaries complained about Jon’s sexual orientation, calling it “forced” or following some kind of “political agenda”.

According to reports, Superman: The Son of Kal-El #5 was the sixth best-selling comic in the month of November, but in December, Superman: The Son of Kal-El #6 it wasn’t even in the top fifty best sellers.

Tom Taylor’s Superman: Son of Kal-El Comic Sales Number Confirms Series’ Success

This served the usual critics to boast about it on social networks and on their YouTube channels. then the writer Tom Taylor, who is usually the biggest target of criticism, used Twitter to explain in a very simple way why this has happened.

“Today I woke up with loads of strangers in my mentions attacking the sales of Superman: Son of Kal-El number 6 and celebrating the failure of our comic…” Thus began his argument Tom Taylor and explained why this information is completely false.

I don’t think the value of a story is measured by its sales. But our Superman is selling quite well. Issue #5, where Jon Kent comes out as bisexual, made the Top 10 in November comic book sales. I understand that there are those who want this series to fail for some pretty obvious and horrible reasons, but… it’s not failing. Far from it, issues #1-4 of Superman: Son of Kal-El were sold out and returned for a second printing. Issue 5 outsold our first issue, even though our first issue had to be reprinted twice. So what is going on here? I mean, some guy on YouTube can’t be wrong, right?

Tom Taylor accompanies his Twitter thread with images of criticism he receives and YouTube channels celebrating the failure of the series starring Jon Kent. Tom Taylor continues his argument:

Maybe Superman: Son of Kal-El isn’t selling as well AFTER issue #5? That would make perfect sense. Number 5 was world news. And yet…a quick look at Amazon shows that SEVEN issues of Superman: Son of Kal-El are currently in the Top 50 of the best-selling comics list.

Perhaps we should check out how the latest issue is doing on Comixology? But then… how is this true? that’s not true? Is someone LYING on the Internet? Apparently, I’m the one who’s lying and I’m manipulating entire sales charts to back up my lies…or something like that. Waiting. Number 6 didn’t even show up in the December sales? Than?

Finally, Tom Taylor It gives a pretty simple explanation for why the comic doesn’t appear in December’s best sellers and shows that all the criticism the title receives is being unjustified.

Granted, accurate physical sales of comics in stores are hard to come by, but some good sites report estimates. Sometimes they are close, sometimes they are very wrong. But I’m sorry to say… this is true. As many are reporting, Superman #6 did NOT sell well in December.

Because… it didn’t come out until January.
