It is odd that we are looking at the top selling comics for March 2020 today, as most of the month suffered from shutdowns as the United States of America reacted to the CoVID-19 virus. Even with a lower number of comics selling, Spider-Woman #1 is still the tops.
Marvel Comics was March’s top publisher with a 40.98% dollar share and a 46.76% unit share. DC was second with a 27.34% dollar share and a 27.58% unit share. Image Comics was third for the month, followed by IDW Publishing, BOOM! Studios, Dark Horse Comics, and Dynamite Entertainment.
