2019 Comic Book Sales to Comics Shops

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

OVERALL North American Dollar Sales for Diamond's Comics,
Graphic Novels, and Magazines for the year
through NOVEMBER 30

around $488.58 Million

(up 2.02% year-over-year)


After 2017 was the first down year in six for the Direct Market, 2018 served as a year of recovery, with the year-and-a-half recession ending in spring. The only two months where we won't have even comparisons in 2019 will be July and August; August's fifth shipping week in 2018 goes to July in 2019.

The number of new comic books (not counting variants) released so far in 2019 is 1,381, up from 1,365 in the same period in 2018. The number of new graphic novels released so far in 2019 is 1,050, up from 895 in the same period in 2018.

January's market rebounded strongly from a slowdown at the end of 2018, with overall dollar sales of comic books and graphic novels up 14%. Every subcategory was up over the same month in 2018, which had the same number of shipping weeks. Batman Who Laughs #2 led unit sales for comics, while Captain Marvel #1 led dollar sales. Marvel saw the return of the Conan license from Dark Horse, and as a result had a new Conan the Barbarian #1 in fourth place, while a new omnibus led the graphic novel dollar chart.

February saw the smallest new comics slate since at least 2013, with only 389 new comics released, a full 60 fewer than in the same month in the previous year. Sales were consequently down overall but not by as much as new release volume; average sales per release thus improved.

In March, DC improved on its success with Action #1000 back in April 2018 with Detective Comics #1000, celebrating the 80th anniversary of Batman. The issue had initial orders in North America of more than 526,000 copies, and by the end of April had passed all but Star Wars #1 to become the second bestselling comic book of the 21st Century. The month also saw the release of the Captain Marvel movie on March 8. The first quarter closed out positive, up 7.7%; it was the third quarterly increase out of the previous four quarters.

April featured the launch of War of the Realms, a major Marvel crossover lasting three months. In theaters, Shazam released April 5, Hellboy on April 12, and Avengers: Endgame on April 26. The latter set all-time records for first-weekend box office.

May kicked off with the launch of DCeased, which took the top spot with nearly a quarter-million copies shipped in its first month. Free Comic Book Day followed on May 4. Marvel released 118 new comic books in the month, its largest total in the century so far.


June found Black Cat #1 sell more than a quarter million copies into stores. The industry finished the first half of the year just slightly behind its pace for 2018. June 7 also saw the release of the Dark Phoenix movie, which performed far beneath expectations.

July saw a major surprise in the sudden and unannounced end of Walking Dead with #193. The issue was quickly selling in multiples of cover price on eBay. July also featured the return of Jonathan Hickman to Marvel with House of X and Powers of X, which led the month's sales. Spider-Man: Far From Home released in theaters on July 5.

DC shipped cardstock covers on 22 issues in its line in July; as per standard practice for variants with differing cover prices, they appeared bifurcated into separate entries. That's how they appear below. (The top-seller, DCeased #3, sold a combined 132,000 copies, ranking outside the Top 10 for the year.)

Marvel went for some 80th anniversary sales magic of its own in August, with Marvel Comics #1000 shipping more than 200,000 copies. The Absolute Carnage event by Donny Cates also launched at Marvel during the month, and its first issue took top honors as the month's top seller. August's combination of big-ticket events plus the Jonathan Hickman House of X/Powers of X reboot for the X-Men line gave Marvel its highest dollar market share at Diamond since the distributor began releasing final order dollar share data in 1997.

Image and Todd McFarlane celebrated a milestone in in September with Spawn #300, which gave the title is first first-place ranking for the first time since #100, 19 years earlier.

In October, Marvel launched the "Dawn of X" event as House of X and Powers of X wrapped up and X-Men #1 launched to more than a quarter-million copies sold. Spawn got another dose of record celebration sales with Spawn #301. The number of releases from DC increased considerably, helping to contribute to the best month in the Direct Market in exactly three years, DC also got a movie release with Joker.

November was a steady-as-she-goes month, with the X-Men relaunch and a larger DC slate resulting in a month in which all categories were slightly improved over the previous year. New Mutants #1 was the top comic book of the month.

Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker is set for a December release. It comes out on Dec. 20.

Projected rankings for comics and graphic novels sold by Diamond during the year appear below. These are aggregated from the Top 500 lists published by the distributor throughout the year, and undershoot sales by whatever months in which reorders did not make the Top 500. Year-end totals will appear on this page in January 2020 and will include those extra months' sales. These figures then should be considered as minimums for the number of copies shipped, with final orders for the year slightly higher.

2019 Graphic Novel Sales to Comics Shops

Estimated Graphic Novels and Trade Paperbacks Shipped to North American Comics Shops Based on Reports from Diamond Comic Distributors

The chart below collates known information from Diamond's monthly charts for the year.

The links lead to details about each title on Amazon. You can also find the books at your comics shop.

#1 #2 #3 #4

Projected rankings for hardcovers and trade paperbacks sold by Diamond during the year appear below. These are aggregated from the Top 500 lists published by the distributor throughout the year, and undershoot sales by whatever months in which orders did not make the Top 500. Year-end totals will appear on this page in January 2020 and will include those extra months' sales. These figures then should be considered as minimums for the number of copies shipped, with final orders for the year higher.
