piechart.jpgDiamond Comic Distributors has sent Major Spoilers the sales data for titles shipping in May of 2008.  The month broke down with Marvel once again taking the top spot with Secret Invasion #2 outselling DC’s first issue of Grant Morrison’s Final Crisis (ouch).

Marvel took seven of the top 10 spots, with DC claiming 3 – all Grant Morrison titles, with two Batman RIP issues.  Dark Horse’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer made an appearance at number 15, the only non Marvel or DC title to crack the top 20.

This gave Marvel quite the edge for the month claiming 47.56% of the market share, with DC coming in at 29.95%.

Take the jump for the complete breakdown and see where your favorite title fell in the Top 300 Comics for May 2008.

Here’s how the pie is split up for the market share of the month.

Stephen Schleicher

Stephen Schleicher began his career writing for the Digital Media Online community of sites, including Digital Producer and Creative Mac covering all aspects of the digital content creation industry. He then moved on to consumer technology, and began the Coolness Roundup podcast. A writing fool, Stephen has freelanced for Sci-Fi Channel's Technology Blog, and Gizmodo. Still longing for the good ol' days, Stephen launched Major Spoilers in July 2006, because he is a glutton for punishment.
