How Well Did OMAC Sell?

DC Comics Presents 61 staring Superman and OMAC

DC Comics Presents 61

“The Once-and-Future War” by Len Wein, George Perez, Pablo Marcos, and Rick Hoberg; cover by Perez.

I remember a DC editor once making a comment that OMAC would likely never appear in a DC book again because he had the distinction of being DC’s lowest selling book ever.

Considering OMAC lasted 8 issues at a time when low-selling books usually got axed at 5 issues, I always wondered at the truthiness of the editor’s statement.

But I’m a sucker for Kirby‘s work. I liked OMAC and was glad he showed up in DCCP. Especially with Wein & Perez onboard.
