300th-place Comic Books by Month

Estimated Sales to North American Comics Shops
of the 300th-place comic book from each month
as Reported by Diamond Comic Distributors


The bottom of the Diamond sales chart fluctuates depending on the conditions in the industry and the volume of titles offered by the major publishers; nonetheless, many find it interesting to look at what items made the very last stop in Diamond's Top 300 each month. Note that these are preorders through 2002, and only the first month's orders in any event.

In some cases, these are not the initial orders for these books, but reorders; this is the case for comics marked "O/A" (offered again) in some months. The more important statistic here is simply where the 300th place falls, unit-wise. 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.
