100th-place Comic Books by Month

Estimated Sales to North American Comics Shops
of the 100th-place comic book from each month
as Reported by Diamond Comic Distributors


The 100th-place mark is an interesting benchmark historically, as in the 1980s and early 1990s, comics distributors only reported their Top 100 titles. By 100th place, in most months, the best-selling independent books are beginning to appear, so while there are still many Marvel and DC entries past 100th place, a variety of publisher names can be seen.

Note that these are preorders through 2002, and only the first month's orders in any event. The number of shipping weeks each month is noted because a fifth week will generally boost the sales levels seen at every location on the chart; there are more titles released, and also more time for individual issues to sell. Four-week-months are best compared with four-week months, and likewise for five-week months.
