1% More Comic Stores In 2012 Than In 2011

At the ComicsPRO retailer summit, Diamond Comic Distributors rolled out some statistics for the direct market.

That comics sales in 2012 increased 16% from 2011’s figures, graphic novels increased 13%, merchandise increased 9% and total sales were up, a total increase of 14%.

And that comic book direct market stores increased in number by 1%, similar to the previous year.

Some put last year’s rise in the number of comic stores down to the spread of comic stores into Hastings across the US. This year, although still a small rise, has bucked the trend over the last decade or two.
