December 1995 Comic Book Sales Rankings
Rankings of Comics Preordered by North American Comics Shops
as Reported by Diamond Comic Distributors

• Marvel, Kitchen Sink, and Coppervale were not distributed by Diamond in this month.
• Diamond was the only comics-shop distributor for
DC, Image, Dark Horse, Acclaim, Gemstone, Wizard, and Broadway.
True industry-wide rankings would thus be much different.
