MARKET SHARE: Top 300 Comics for December 2011

by

Diamond Comic Distributors has released the complete list of the Top 300 Comics released in the direct market in December 2011.  As already mentioned, DC fell to the number two spot, even though it commanded the Top 10 Comics category.  DC Comics has brushed off the fall from number one, as Diamond did lower the ranking of several DC books because they were eligible for returns.

Take the jump for the complete, searchable, list of comics.
