DC Comics Co-Publisher Dan DiDio says retailer orders of the publisher's upcoming DC Nation #0 anthology one-shot have reached the one million mark, which DiDio says is the highest selling single issue in his time with DC.
DiDio made the announcement Thursday during DC's Retailer Only panel at Chicago's C2E2 convention.
"If we can get one million of these into the hands of fans, that could change everything," DiDio said.
The one million number does carry a small caveat - the anthology, which contains three stories that will set the stage for the future of the Batman, Justice League, and Superman lines - is priced at only $.25 cents.
DiDio also announced that DC's other major spring release, Action Comics #1000, has reached orders of a half million copies.
Action Comics #1000 is due out on shelves April 18, followed by DC Nation #0 on shelves May 2
