Market Share: Comic sales up in June
Good news, everyone! Comic sales were way up in June thanks in part to Civil War II and DC Comics Rebirth. Even better, DC Comics placed seven titles in the top ten comics for the month. The bad news? Marvel still lead the month.
Their sales powered by Civil War II, Marvel Comics was June’s top publisher with a 40.08% dollar share and a 44.17% unit share. With strong Rebirth sales, DC Entertainment was the month’s number two publisher with a 29.93% dollar share and a 31.69% unit share. At number three was Image Comics with a 7.88% dollar share and a 7.64% unit share. IDW Publishing was fourth with a 5.22% dollar share and a 4.15% unit share, followed by Dark Horse Comics with a 2.81% dollar share and 1.76% units share.
That’s really great news overall, and for those that were worried the sky was falling, this should put some of us back in our place.
