Diamond releases the top 500 comics of 2012

Avengers Vs X Men

Here’s the list finally, and aside from The Walking Dead at the top, it’s all Marvel and DC until #90 which is My Little Pony Friendship is Magic. Never though I would write that. Dynamite’s MASKS #1 comes in at 196, and Saga #1 at 251. Otherwise, it’s mostly all Marvel and DC.

    AVENGERS, BATMAN, JUSTICE LEAGUE. AVENGERS, BATMAN, JUSTICE LEAGUE. AVENGERS, BATMAN, JUSTICE LEAGUE. AVENGERS, BATMAN, JUSTICE LEAGUE.

    It’s like a mantra.

  2. johnrobiethecat says:

    LOL!
    I was thinking the same thing. No wonder zombies are a big thing now.

  3. Mesektet says:

    The drops on the Marvel Now titles are pretty huge. I wonder if they would be that bad without double shipping.

  4. Torsten Adair says:

    YIKES.

    DC = 260 (52%)
    Marvel = 219 (43.8%)
    Image = 16 (3.2%)
    IDW = 2 (#90, #290)
    Dynamite = 2 (#196, #251)
    Valiant = 1 (#268)

    Just for a a general benchmark, Saga #5 sold approximately 40,556 copies in July (#44 for the month).

    Worlds’ Finest #0 — 42,770 in September (#35 for the month)

    Hey… can we get Paul, Marc-Oliver, and Paul to do a three-in-one review of the Top 500, where each provides commentary for the title?

    Or would that cause the server to melt?

  5. Cerebro says:

    Torsten, I like the three-in-one review ideas, but I’m doubtful these guys could find the time. We’re still waiting for those November month-to-month columns (must be running late due to the holidays).

  6. jonboy says:

    If it hadn’t been for the Avengers/X-Men event (atrocity), Marvel would have been absolutely destroyed by DC in 2012.

  7. It’s a sad world we live in when Catwoman outsells Saga. Geez people, take a chance on something better …

    Also hard to complain about comics being expensive when the top 23 sellers are $3.99 or more.

  8. srfan says:

    Am I the only one who cannot see the entire list due to the width of the left (main) column?

  9. John Warren says:

    @srfan–That seems to happen quite a bit. Whenever there is a video posted, the rightmost one-third of the video gets cut off because of the way the page is formatted.

    I suppose some browsers may handle this better than others. I’m using Firefox 17.0.1.

    So even though the december charts have not been released, we can kind of figure what were the top sellers for that month from this top 500. If I’m not mistaken, the top 15 for december looks like this:

    Amazing Spider-Man #700
    Avengers #1
    Batman #15
    Justice League #15
    Detective Comics #15
    Avengers #2
    Cable and X-Force #1
    Batman and Robin #15
    All-new X-Men #3
    Thunderbolts #1
    All-New X-Men #4
    Aquaman #15
    Batgirl #15
    Amazing Spider-Man #699
    Nightwing #15

    So basically, DC’s Death of the family and Throne of Atlantis x-overs are able to compete with the Marvel NOW launch.

    These figures indicate that: 1. The monthly sales estimates aren’t entirely accurate as they dont take into account re-order activity. It seems even the rankings dont even give the full picture. 2. Comic fans love events. There’s no way around it. 3. Batman and Justice League are sales juggernauts. 4. Marvel and DC have a hammer lock on the direct market.

    “4. Marvel and DC have a hammer lock on the direct market.”

    No, Marvel and DC dominate the Direct Market comic book segment.

    Take a look at my New York Times bestseller analysis. You’ll see a lot of graphic novels which are based on titles which do not chart well (like Vertigo), or original material. Marvel is anemic in graphic novel sales.

    Meanwhile, Image is ramping up their single issue sales. Saga and Manhattan Projects are long term projects, following the Sandman model perfected by DC. (Give a creator control over a title, market it well (Sandman month), develop a readership, gain critical attention, keep all previous volumes in print.)

    Reorders are taken in to account on monthly charts. Since many times the reorders happen the following month they show up in next month’s chart. This final chart aggregates it all together and even then can’t take in to account second printings for December titles which end up being ordered in January 2013.

    No. Take a look at the Top 500 GRAHPIC NOVEL CHART. Very different makeup.

    Okay. But look at that Top 500 GN list WITHOUT Walking Dead.

    Don’t get me wrong – I’m not pish-poshing the indy books. I relish their existence. But I also don’t believe that they are more dominant than they are.
    Disclaimer – While I still buy my DCs as monthlies (I don’t buy any Marvel), I only buy indy books as tpbs (I don”t buy Walking Dead).

Speak Your Mind
