I'll look around for those royalty stubs and print the real story. You're correct in assessing that the Diamond numbers are not accurate because they don't consider advance pre-orders and re-orders or newstand sales.

For the record, I never said that my run was the best selling modern run, CBG did, I just repeated it.

"Robbie from the block"

Lol! At least we share a similar sense of humour!

And kudos to you Rob for having the balls to even get into this discussion!

You let it go. I called him on something and he wormed out of it before and I'm calling him on it again. Now he's backtracking and saying that CBG said his run was the best selling modern run. Where do the excuses end and the truth begin? Is it wrong to ask someone to provide proof for their assertions? If he can prove that he's right (or CBG is right, or whatever it is this month), then I'll stand corrected, but I seriously doubt his run outsold the runs of the 70s and 80s.

Please don't let it go. My info was primarily drawn from a CBG issue that outlined the sales figures. I'll get a hold of it and we'll all get a nice front row to some good ol' fashioned crow eatin'.

Well Robbie...

Your story keeps changing. In the previous thread you said you had the highest selling run of all time. I pointed out that in the Golden Age, Cap sold in the millions. Now you've switched to the modern age and attributed your claims to CBG. I don't recall you attributing the claims to CBG in the previous thread. Revisionist history or convenient scapegoat?

Yet Rob has gotten paying jobs and taken care of his family just fine, so the lack of respect and bad reputation you cite do not appear to have been factors in his particular case.

I'd find it easier to smile over this were it not for the fact that Robin is currently, as they say, "between assignments" and we're living off my salary alone at the moment. Which, alas, is nowhere near $150,000 or even the $66-grand-before-taxes that Rob cites.
