Diamond Comic Distributors has sent Major Spoilers the breakdown of the top 300 comics for the month ending March 2009.   DC’s Batman: Battle for the Cowl #1 sold well, but not enough to beat Dark Avengers #3 and New Avengers #51 (both Dark Reign tie-ins).  It, Justice League of America #31, and Dark Horse’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer #23 were the only non-Marvel titles in the Top Ten for the month, which means, once again, Marvel took the month with a 47% hold on the direct market.

As reported a few days ago, IDW Publishing had a nice run for the month coming in third for March 2009, beating Dark Horse Comics by a mere .3% in the unit share column.


Take the jump to see where your favorite comic falls on the Top 300 List, and don’t forget, you can sort the columns.

    I can’t believe Tim Truman’s Conan is doing better than BPRD The Black Goddess.

    Conan the Cimmerian is so intolerably boring I it’s shocking that even a 1000 would buy it.

    Fables – another incredibly and ludicrously overrated series. It’s like Sandman for retarded people who can’t appreciate the genius of Sandman.

    Fables has no depth. Fables might as well be an f-ing Soap Opera with a few tacked-on fantastic elements.

      As always Cory – In Your Opinion. Obviously more people think these titles are worth the read.

      Soap opera? You mean like the story of a man who feuds with his sisters, continually has romantic drama, searches for his long-lost prodigal brother, dies but comes back recast as a new actor, and has to deal with hostile takeovers of the business that he built for himself?
