Fifty Trades Of Gray – The Top Selling Graphic Novels Of June 2012

Okay, so it says the top fifty trade paperbacks and graphic novels sold through Diamond Comic Distributor to comic stores in North America. But for some reason it only actually seems to be the top forty-nine. I don’t care I’m sticking with the headline.

And while the new Walking Dead collection dominates, not how the League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen challenges it, The Biys does pretty well too, beating DC’s Bat books. I’d like to remind you that The Boys was dropped by DC Comics under the orders of Paul Levitz.

That the new trade outsells the first collection of the New 52 Detective Comics just before the Dark Knight Rises must rankle a little. And Fatale, written by Ed Brubaker outselling the first New52 collection of the Catwoman collection he used to write, may do similar…

But it’s Marvel’s lack of play, with nothing in the top ten, and beaten by two Dynamite books, that really sticks out…
