Yesterday, Diamond Comic Distributors released market share information for comic book and graphic novels sold to the direct market during December 2016. Today, we present the top 300 comics sold during that period.
It’s time once again to look back at the month that was and see how good (or bad) it was for the comic book industry.
Diamond Comic Distributors has released the first wave of market share data for comics shipped to comic book and specialty stores in November 2016. The good news? Marvel and DC nearly tie in the top ten, but overall comic sales have slipped.
As mentioned last week, Marvel was able to climb back up to the top of the comic book stack, but it didn’t have the number one comic. This morning, Diamond Comic Distributors has released the complete list of the top 300 comics released in the direct market in October 2016, and it is worth checking out.
For those who were biting their nails waiting to see if DC would once again trump Marvel in the race to the top of the sales charts, you are either breathing a sigh of relief or running in the streets looking for someone to blame. Marvel has moved to the top of the charts for October 2016.
Last week, we learned DC Comics was able to snag the top publishing spot in September 2016 with eight titles in the top ten. Today, we have a rundown of the top 300 comics sold in the direct market during the month.
Diamond Comic Distributors has announced DC Comics took the top spot once again in September for comics released in the direct market. Is this the sign of a major market change, or is the apocalypse upon us all!?
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.
Diamond Comic Distributors announced that August was a record month for the direct market, as the distributor announced it shipped ten million non-promotional comic books for the first time in 20 years. Comic shops purchased 10.26 million comics last month.
Diamond Comic Distributors has released the complete top 300 listing of comics released in July 2016. As previously mentioned, July was the first month in a long time where DC Comics outsold Marvel. Where did all of the books rank? Take the jump for a look at our searchable table.
