200th-place Comic Books by Month

Estimated Sales to North American Comics Shops
of the 200th-place comic book from each month
as Reported by Diamond Comic Distributors


While the true center of the Top 300 comics lists Diamond releases every month is at 150th place, 200th place in modern times better defines the midlist, because the distributor often released 400 new comics or more a month. By 200th place, most of the Marvel and DC titles have already appeared, so odds of seeing independent publisher names increases.

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.
