Diamond's final rankings for all comics and trade paperbacks during the year appear below. Diamond reported these issues without indexes allowing actual sales estimates to be calculated — and it also did not include cover prices, although a select few have been added here.

Diamond's top-seller is a puzzling, as Violator #1 only placed third in the month of its release, and Capital City ranked it only 23rd for the year. Capital ranked Generation X #1 in first and Spawn/Batman second, and as it had the same rank at Diamond, Spawn/Batman is likely the top seller for the year in the Direct Market. Diamond's #3 book, Stryke Force, didn't appear in Capital's list at all.
