June 2001 Comic Book Sales to Comics Shops

Estimated Comics Preordered by North American Comics Shops
Based on Reports from Diamond Comic Distributors


Unit preorders for comic books reached almost exactly where they were at during the lowest point in 2000. Combined comics and new trade paperback orders were nearly $2 million behind where they were in the pre-Ultimate days of June 2000.

Diamond did release dollar rankings for the Top 300 comics; these will be added at a later date.

This list includes all items on Diamond's Top 300 chart.
Items marked (resolicited) were offered in an earlier month but never shipped; disregard any previously reported figure, as earlier orders were canceled when the books were resolicited.
Distributor charts are regional commodity reports, not measures of a work's total reach. Read our FAQ.
The links lead to current listings for each issue on eBay. You can also find the books at your comics shop.
