Ten Grand Launches At No 25 In May’s Top 100 Comics & Graphic Novels Chart

tengrand1So what can we see? Ten Grand from JMS and Ben Templesmith launched at 25th place, though it was returnable ( and also that its place will have been discounted on the chart).  he Wake #1 only made it to number 40, showing that retailers have more confiednce in Image than Vertigo.

Green Lantern #20, hough only getting in the the top 10 by the skin of its teeth, was marked number 2 for overall revenue, based on its $7.99 cover price. Boom’s Regular Show #1 debuted at number 56.

Because we know that Diamond ordered 56,000 copies of Regular Show, we could make the guesstimate that X-Men #1 sold… 258,000. Certainly around there, and that would include the non-Northern American sales too. Though using the ratio of the North American market only to make the guess. And The Regular Show is less high profile in the UK.

Oh and yes, for those who say female-led comics don’t sell? X-Men #1…

Hmm. Dodgy statistics.

Apsen’s Charismagic #1 debuted at number 90, with Ape’s Sesame Street #1 hitting at no 98.
