Sales figures are in for CEREBUS IN HELL? #1: down to 5,500 from 8,000 on #0. Matt, as usual, asked what I wanted the PO to be for and I figured, well, okay, Diamond took an extra 1,000 on #0 (and thank you again) and sold roughly 700 of the extra thousand. So, I thought, let's "top it up" to 6,300 on the assumption that they can sell the same percentage of the 700 that they did of the 1,000 (don't want them to come up short, but I don't want them to be eating books either).
It makes my head hurt trying to figure out what's going on. My best theory right now is that x number of stores UNDER-ordered the book and that added up to 700 extras being sold and y number of stores OVER-ordered on the book and cut their orders on #1 to what they sold of #0. And z number of stores ordered just as many as they needed and sold them and then ordered the same again. And there were more "y" stores than "x" and "z" stores at about a 3:1 ratio.
Does that sound right to anyone?
