Fantastic Force Sales Figures
Circulation as Reported in Publishers' Statements of Ownership
Filed with the United States Postal Service
A spinoff from Fantastic Four starring a young adult Franklin Richards, Fantastic Force ran for a year and a half in the mid-1990s. A mini-series by the same name appeared from Marvel in 2009.
A trivial Comichron connection: I used Fantastic Force as the sample title in the proposal to Krause Publications for the Standard Catalog of Comic Books.
Some direct-market only information on that title is available in the monthly reports.

There was no Statement for 1996, as the series was canceled during the year. 1994 issues were published too soon to have a report filed.
