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

around $529.66 Million

(up 2.54% year-over-year)

The decade of the 2010s ended on a note of growth for the Direct Market, as comics shops bought $528.1 million in comic books, graphic novels, and magazines from Diamond Comic Distributors in 2019, an increase of 2.23% or $11.5 million over 2018's total of $516.6 million. Three out of four quarters in 2019 showed improvement; that hadn't happened since 2015, a year partially fueled by Star Wars' move to Marvel.

Dollar sales of periodical comic books were up nearly 4% in 2019, while graphic novel sales were down 2%. Both figures represented improvements over 2018, which saw comics up 2% and graphic novels down 8%.

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. Its North American sales eventually topped 574,000 copies, and were higher than 600,000 when overseas stores were included.

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.

After two years, Doomsday Clock wrapped up with its twelfth issue in December. It led the charts in a month that closed out the year on a positive note.

The final rankings for all comics and graphic novels during the year appear below.
Readers will find that the estimated final orders in the year for these comics exceed what was visible in the monthly charts; that's because of reorders for items that were not high enough to make the Top 500 lists in every month. Entries for variants with the same price points were merged by Diamond but not those with different ones, such as the DC cardstock and regular versions of its comics; we left the entries separate because often only one of the two versions made the chart.
