Nemo Heart of Ice Justice League of America tops February sales
Marvel topped both units and dollars in February, while DC reclaimed the top comics spot with Justice League of America #1 by Johns and Frank. The big news this month was IDW’s surge for their first time over 7% market share– it’s amazing how far you can go riding on a little pony. They were still behind Image, though.

Alan Moore topped the GN chart for the umpty zillionth time with NEMO HEART OF ICE, followed by Batman and Adventure Time.
Although comics sales remain up above last year at a robust level, GN sales were down from January because there wasn’t a Walking Dead trade this month. Still healthy growth in all channels as they say.

John Jackson Miller has his preliminary analysis here.

    It was actually David Finch on the art for JLA #1. :)

    Does anyone else find it kinda funny that DC is skipping out on their monthly sales interview with the comics press this month? I’m sure they don’t want to have to explain how they got pwned in February, considering that they had a 52 variant cover gimmick going on.
