500th-place Comic Books by Month

Estimated Sales to North American Comics Shops
of the 500th-place comic book from each month
as Reported by Diamond Comic Distributors

Whereas 300th place level on the Diamond sales chart has long provided a useful benchmark for sales, the availability of information below that level has been intermittent. But in December 2017, Diamond switched to reporting the Top 500, allowing a glimpse at what was selling far down on the charts.

Sales volumes at 500th place vary wildly; between new titles and reordered titles, five-week months see much higher sales levels.

When larger publishers' titles are seen below, the figures are always from a second- or later-month reorder. Doomsday Clock #6 in October 2018, for example, was on its third month of sales when it appeared in 500th place.
