I initially thought the Statement of Ownership in this issue revealed that this series was the highest-seller of the line, which seemed odd. Looking closer, the date listed under the header is October 1, 1995. For that period, average sales for the year were 349,843 copies and 358,529 for the most recent issue. The next issue prints the 1996 Statement of Ownership, which lists average sales for the year at 247,828 copies and 254,532 for the most recent issue. Assuming these aren’t typos, this title lost 100,000 readers in one year. It’s amazing how many readers the industry continued to bleed after the speculator bubble burst.
