A few weeks ago, I wrote a post on Grant Morrison's New X-Men in which I argued that Morrison had failed in his goal of attracting general readers, using BookScan figures as evidence. In the interests of fairness, I feel obliged to report that when I go to my local public library, the handcover and paperback collections of Morrison's New X-Men are usually mostly checked out.

(The library has a scattering of other superhero collections, but otherwise their GN collection consists largely of manga, most of which is also usually checked out, though there are exceptions: e.g. the run of Initial D has been sitting there for a couple of weeks now.)
