top ten comics
Though it has receive mixed reviews, DC Comics’s Convergence series was able to push almost every other property out of the top ten comics sold in the direct market in April 2015. Only the power of the force was able to keep DC from dominating the month.
Diamond Comic Distributors released its list of the top ten comics released in the direct market during February 2014. Though the list is heavily dominated by DC and Marvel, there are a couple of titles that made the list that might surprise you.
Diamond Comic Distributors has announced that DC Comics lead the direct market in terms of dollars made during the month of August 2012, with Marvel barely edging out DC in terms of copies sold. So once again, the month is split with each of the major publishers getting a chance to strut and crow about their achievement.
We knew during the San Diego Comic Con that The Walking Dead was the top selling comic for the month of July, and early numbers indicated it was the top selling comic for the last decade. Diamond Comic Distributors has released the numbers for July, and things are looking good.
For the next year we may see a lot of headlines like the one above as DC and Marvel battle for number one. This month, Marvel once again took the top spot earning the most money and selling the most product. While that may make some feel superior, when one looks at the Top Ten Titles Sold in the Direct Market, the picture is quite different as DC places seven titles in the Top Ten.
Diamond Comic Distributors have released the first round of market share data for April 2012. Marvel once again climbed to the top, nabbing both the dollar and market share spots. This is interesting because DC Comics placed six titles in the top ten comics sold in the direct market.
When DC Comics came out on top of the Market and Dollar Share in September 2011, many shrugged their shoulders and said, “Let’s see what happens in October.” Diamond Comic Distributors has released the initial list of comics sold, and once again DC Comics has taken the Dollar and Unit Share for October 2011.
Diamond Comic Distributors released its list of the top selling comics for September 2009, and it was a very good month for DC as Blackest Night and the related tie-in issues helped the company dominate the top ten comics sold for the month. 1Â Â Â BLACKEST NIGHT #3Â Â Â $3.99 2Â Â Â CAPTAIN AMERICA: REBORN #3Â Â Â $3.99 3Â Â Â BATMAN AND ROBIN #4Â Â Â $2.99 4Â Â Â GREEN LANTERN #46Â Â Â $2.99 5Â Â Â WOLVERINE: GIANT-SIZE OLD MAN LOGAN #1Â Â Â $4.99 6Â Â Â BLACKEST NIGHT: BATMAN #2Â Â Â $2.99 7Â Â Â NEW AVENGERS #57Â Â Â $3.99 8Â Â Â GREEN LANTERN CORPS #40Â Â Â $2.99 9Â Â Â DARK AVENGERS #9Â Â Â $3.99 10Â Â Â BLACKEST NIGHT: SUPERMAN #2Â
