batman277DATELINE: New York-   The monthly sales figures are out and the only comic book to go over 100,000 copies sold was BATMAN #27.  Speculators opine that the numbers could be thanks to the striking GREG CAPULLO cover. Others say because of the issue’s link into the final chapter of ZERO HOUR. Others think buyers may have been misled by the Batman 27 sales incentive of BOGO. But instead of BUY ONE-GET ONE, it actually stood for BUY ONE- GET ZERO.
