December 1994 Comic Book Sales to Comics Shops

Estimated Comics Preorded by North American Comics Shops
from Diamond Comic Distributors

December 1994 Graphic Novel Sales to Comics Shops

Graphic Novels and Trade Paperbacks Preordered by North American Comics Shops from Diamond Comic Distributors

This list includes all items on Diamond's charts. If you don't see a book, Diamond released no data for it.

#2 #3 #5 #6

Diamond did not publish order index numbers for graphic novels in this era, so units cannot be determined. Diamond also included a bunch of Marvel prepacked comic sets, which probably only made this category because of their price.
