October 2013 Comic Book Sales to Comics Shops

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


The comics industry's momentum showed few signs of dissipating in October, as Direct Market shops in North America ordered more than $50 million worth of comic books and graphic novels for the first time in the 16 years that Diamond Comic Distributors has been the exclusive sales agent for all the major publishers.

Walking Dead #115 from Image edged out February's Justice League of America #1 for the most copies sold in a single month, approximately 310,600 to 307,800.

This was also the first month since at least the mid-1990s when the top five publishers (here, Dark Horse, DC, IDW, Image, and Marvel) all had orders for their entries in the Top 300 comics topping $1 million. The top four last had orders topping that sum in October 2000.

Read more in our preliminary and final analysis posts for the month. You can also click to skip to the Top Graphic Novels for the month.

This list includes all items on Diamond's Top 300 chart, plus any post-#300 items from its Top 50 Indy and Small Publisher charts. If you don't see a book, Diamond released no data for it.
Items marked with asterisks [*] had their reported orders reduced by 10% due to returnability.
Distributor charts are regional commodity reports, not measures of a work's total reach. Read our FAQ.
