November was another notch on DC Comics belt, as the company held on to the market share for the month over competitor Marvel.  And DC’s success appears to be a success for everyone.

DC let the market with a 34.69% share compared to Marvel’s 33.30%.  It’s not a huge difference, but as someone once said, “a win is a win.”  And a win for everyone it was as November’s sales topped October sales by 4.33% with a strong increase in the graphic novel category, which saw a 30% rise. Overall, November 2011 sales are up 2% from November 2010.

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