Spider-Man, Batman, and Guardians of the Galaxy top sellers for July 2014
Diamond Comic Distributors released the top ten comics sold in the direct market for July 2014, and anything having to do with Batman, Spider-Man, and Guardians of the Galaxy were big sellers.
In its monthly release, Diamond lists Rocket Raccoon #1 as the best selling comic for the month, just beating Batman #33 from DC Comics.
With six titles in the top ten, it should come as no surprise that Marvel dominated sales, bringing in 38.39% of the unit market share, compared to DC Entertainment’s 31.32%.
This may or may not come as a surprise, as Marvel, who released 93 comics, generally has a higher price per issue than DC Comics, which shipped 97 issues in July, though Rocket Raccoon selling 300,000 comics probably had something to do with the company’s success.
