Diamond Comic Distributors has released its listing of the Top 300 Comics Sold in the Direct Market for August 2011.  As previously reported, Justice League and Flashpoint took the top two spots, with reported numbers in the 200,000 range.  That seems really good to a point, but when you look at the Index ranking and see that Justice League sold at least three times the number of Batman comics, that isn’t good super great.

Take the jump to see the complete list for August, which you can sort and search to pull your own nuggets of information out of the data.

    X-Men Schism #1 at 236. That ought to say something.

      That must be a 2nd printing hiting in August. That issue was 11th on the July sales charts, with a $5 cover price. And issue #2 was 28th in July.

    There’re always some things I see on this list that I feel are a complete travesty that they’re so low. The final issues of Batgirl and Secret Six are the primary ones here.

    I’m also surprised Batman: Knight of Vengeance 3 didn’t do better; I had been under the impression that it was doing pretty darn well in sales.

    9 out of 20 for DC isn’t bad.

You know you have something to say, say it in the comment section
