Infinite Crisis, All-Star Superman, and a great month for new trade paperback sales helped the direct market to double-digit gains in November.

Stable year-over-year sales for comics were complemented by a $4.74 million month for Diamond's Top 100 trade paperbacks, a 23% increase over the same month in 2004.

Marvel retook the top slots in Diamond's reported overall unit and dollar market shares, thanks in part to its placing 87 items on Diamond's Top 300 comics list versus DC's 93. Dark Horse again topped Image's dollar share in the wider categories, whereas Image was third when looking just at comics. The top debut publisher in the Top 300 was Udon, which placed 198th with Exalted #1 selling about 7,300 copies.

Diamond did not release the dollar sales rankings for the comics in 101st through 300th place this month.
