[Market Share] Top 300 Comics for April 2016

Diamond Comic Distributors has released the rundown of the top 300 Comics sold in the direct market in April 2016.  I hate to say it is more of the same, but really, it is another moth of more of the same, with DC only listing two comics in the Top 10.

Last month Dark Horse Comics took a big tumble down the charts, landing in the number six position behind Image Comics, IDW Publishing, and BOOM! Studios.  The publisher did a bit better in April as it climbed one spot to number five, and nabbing 3.07% of the dollar share for the month.

In the Top Ten category, DC Comics too the number one spot last month with Batman #50, but April is all about Black Panther, that became the best selling comic. Much of Black Panther’s success can be attributed to the Funko/Marvel Collector Corps box that shipped the comic in every box.

    Wow, Marvel is really killing it. And its not necessarily a good thing at all.

    You should count again – it’s 3 by DC in the Top Ten – not 2.
