2008 Comic Book Sales to Comics Shops

Estimated Comics Shipped to North American Comics Shops
Based on Reports from Diamond Comic Distributors

OVERALL North American Dollar Sales for
Diamond's Comics, Graphic Novels, and Magazines for the year

around $436.6 Million

(up 1.5% year-over-year)


2008 managed to stay slightly positive overall year-over-year, despite slippage in the narrower categories; to a degree, the year suffered in comparison with the previous year's Civil War-charged sales.

January found Hulk #1 leading the pack to start out the year; X-Force #1 topped the charts in a February with generally soft sales versus the year before. Dark Tower: Long Road Home #1 topped the charts in a month that was weaker than the previous year's blockbuster March.

The event of the year got rolling in April, as Secret Invasion #1 topped the charts, starting a trend as the series led again in May and in all the later months in which it appeared. June closed the first half of 2008 with the year only a little behind 2007; top-selling trade paperback sales were the second highest recorded since the category began.

July continued Secret Invasion's dominance. A softer month across all but one category, trade paperbacks, August brought the year overall to almost exactly equal with the first eight months of 2007. In September, Marvel topped 50% in the Final Unit Sales Market Shares for the first time since Diamond began printing final market shares.

October was the best month in the Diamond Exclusive Era to date for Overall Sales, Top 300 Comics Dollar Sales, and Top Comics Plus Top Trades; the average cost per comic book in the Top 300 also set a record high. Diamond extended the trade paperback list to 300 items to match the comic list in November, a month in which comics shot up to a record $3.50 average price this month and unit sales slumped. In December, Marvel posted its best showing in the direct market in Top 300 units and dollars since 1996 in a month in which it placed 119 items into the Top 300 comics.

The final rankings for all comics and trade paperbacks during the year appear below. Diamond Comic Distributors reported these issues without indexes, so no sales estimates are calculated. You can find the first-month sales for these issues in the monthly charts; click one of the months at the bottom or use the search tool at the top of the page to find the specific issue. But note that those monthly numbers do not include reorders for the entire year; the rankings below do take the entire year's sales into account.
