Top 300 Comics for May 2010

With the return of the Heroic Age, Marvel sent the Avengers #1 to the top of the direct market charts for May 2010. And while Siege #4 took the second spot, Marvel only snagged four of the Top 10 comics for the month. DC made a decent showing with Batman: Return of Bruce Wayne #1 and #2, with issues of Brightest Day #1, and #2 making it into the top ten as well. At this point we should really stop talking about Marvel taking the Unit and Dollar share each month, because the sheer number of issues Marvel puts out…

Top 300 Comics for January 2010

Norman Osborn’s crazy antics propelled Marvel to the top of the charts, as Siege #1 took the top spot for the month of January. Still, DC did make a good showing, with Green Lantern #50’s Blackest Night tie-in, and Grant Morrison’s Batman and Robin #7 placing second and third.  DC only had two other titles showing up in the Top Ten for the month, with Marvel claiming 60% of the Top Ten titles. Marvel also took the top publisher spot in January in both the Direct Market Unit and Dollar Shares, by snatching 42.56% of the Unit and 38.77% of…

Top 300 Comics for December 2008

Diamond Comic Distributors has released its breakdown of comics sold in December 2008.  As the year ended, Marvel once again rode the gravy train to success capturing almost 50% of the unit share, while DC limped in with a 31% showing. With the low showing from the other publishers, it is a wonder they’ll survive with Diamonds new minimum order declaration. The top seller of the month was the closing chapter of the Secret invasion, while the opening chapter to Dark Reign took third place.  DC wedged between the two with Final Crisis #5, and had a pretty decent showing…

Top 300 Comics for October 2008

October was an interesting month for comics as the industry saw an increase in revenue of 9% over last year at this time.  At first it may appear to be due to larger sales, but when one examines the Top 50 books, 18 titles had a price point of $3.99, or roughly 36% of the books shipping for the month. The least expensive book was GI JOE: A New Beginning #0, which cost $1.00.  The most expensive was Gemstone’s Uncle Scrooge #380 with the high price of $7.99.  While there are a lot of $3.99 books, $2.99 still rules the…
