Might find this of interest. A USA Today article, written back in 2006, about self publishing and included some stuff on jms and the script books. Seems to indicate the first 7 issues were selling around two and half thousand copies each. Though that might have grown over time. I vaguely recall someone mention the mailing list for B5books is five figures these days.

At about $40 apiece ($30 in the first week of release), Straczynski expects $1.5 million in total sales from the 14 planned volumes.

A large chunk will go to CafePress, the company that prints and ships each book. Still, Straczynski says he'll have a terrific return on the $500 he spent to set up www.babylon5scripts.com, the website for his sales.
