The latest Comics Journal, #286 (cover date November 2007), features their official Statement of Ownership, Management, and Circulation. It states that last month’s issue had a print run of 3,444 copies and over the last 12 months, they printed an average 3,555 copies.
Why do I care? Because that means that every day, I get more visitors than read the Journal per issue. Which freaks me out. They’re an institution. I’m just shooting my mouth off. Sheesh, now I need to be responsible.
(And please, no cracks about the Journal being past their prime. They’re still a great magazine with interesting things to say about the medium.)
Caveats: yes, this ignores if a copy of the magazine is read by more than one person, and it doesn’t take into account the number of online TCJ readers, and it’s a lot easier to sell “free” than $12 US an issue. That’s the logical side coming to the rescue of the emotional.
