Top 100 Comics And Graphic Novels In April – Bendis Beats DC Again

age

Here’s a look at the best selling comics and graphic novels in April 2013. Does exactly what it says on the tin. We noted last week that Brian Bendis had more titles in the top ten than DC has, four to three. It’s true of the top twenty as well, seven Bendis to four DC. Only in the top thirty do DC beat Brian, eight to his seven. DC do much better in the graphic novels where, along with Image, they dominate Marvel.

It’s also worth noting that while Detective Comics #19 is at eighteenth place in terms of sales, in terms of dollars raised, it’s number one. In the light of this, and Amazing Spider-Man #700, expect a few more $7.99 bumper sized issues along the pipe.

East Of West’s second issue also charted, with Adventure Time settling in, and Aspen had another high first issue debut with Jirni. But nothing compared with the stellar performance of Jupiter’s Legacy. I wonder how issue 2 will do?
