According to the figures in issue #507, MAD‘s annual paid distribution average per issue in 2010 was 188,825. That’s up from 2009 by a considerable 40,721 copies per issue. That’s also the highest level since 2007, and bucks a two year decline trend.
MAD still outsells most comic books by a pretty good margin. … MAD still outsold that best selling comic by an average of over 60,000 copies every issue. Some of the figures on that DC list are astounding… there was a time when only selling and average 33,000 copies an issue (the 2010 average for Action Comics) would get that title instantly canceled. …
2010 was a pretty good year for MAD. Circulation rose by 27.5%. It increased in frequency from quarterly to bi-monthly. A brand new animated TV show debuted on the Cartoon Network in September.
