Diamond Comic Distributors has released the list of the top 300 comics sold in the direct market in August 2016. In a month when over 10 million comics arrived in comic shops and speciality stores, this list will most definitely be scrutinized by a number of online commenters.

As previously mentioned, DC Comics once again ruled the month with nine titles in the top ten.

Keep in mind this list reflects the comics ordered by the direct market. It doesn’t reflect the comics sold to individuals, nor does it include comics sold via other means.
