Diamond Comics has released the top selling products that were released in the direct market during the month of March 2011.

While the top two position haven’t changed (and probably never will), those companies that come after do tend to shift around a bit. In March, Image Comics once again claimed the number three spot, followed by IDW Publishing, Dark Horse, and Dynamite Entertainment.

    How does a piece of crap like The Dark Knight #2 sell 4 times as many copies as Booster Gold?

    Oh, that’s right: Batman comic with a “gritty” cover and terrible writing automatically beats an actually worthwhile comic with a strong but lesser known character.

    Ah well, at least things like TDK#2 might get some casual readers to buy more comics, helping comic stores out financially. Here’s hoping Booster Gold gets a well-deserved bump from Flashpoint inclusion. If Booster gets cancelled at issue 50 I’m going to be depressed.
