DC rules! (and Batman of course.)
Nice to see them maintaining the momentum so far. Good stories. I particularly liked the Gotham/Gotham Girl arc in Batman.
Interesting that two of the slots are for the second issue of a title in the same month. I wonder which comics were 11 and 12, and how it will look when they drop back to once per month. I imagine they will have to once the pre-planned Rebirth work runs out or the quality would be hard to keep up.

DC will be fools to drop back to a single monthly schedule for their major titles. This move is a gold mine for DC, in addition to the 2.99 price tag.

Here is the full list of the top 100 comics for September:

Wow! Marvel is WAY behind in the issues sold top 100 list.
#4 Civil War II
(#15 Star Wars)
#24 Amazing Spider-man
#28 Spider-man Deadpool
#33 Deadpool
#34 Black Panther

It's not until the 40s that they begin to rank consistently.
Even then Avengers is #61 and Uncanny X-Men, the first of the X titles to list is #64.
How the mighty have fallen.

That is correct. But when you look at the top 100 comic charts, you will find 50 DC titles, 42 Marvel titles, and 8 other publishers. Which may imply that there was no drop in orders for DC titles, but an increase in Marvel numbers. Even though more DC titles are in the top-100, Marvel titles are more expensive than DC titles. It appears that this massive variant cover strategy to boost sales of Marvel Now titles was successful. However, we have to wait and see the next few months to get more clearer picture.

Looking at the estimated sales figures for September and October on Comichron.com, it appears Marvel's unit sales rose by about 42% and DC's fell by about 6.5%.
