Diamond’s Biggest Selling Comics And Graphic Novels Of The Year

Posted by January 12, 2010 One Comment

Diamond Comics Distributors have released their end of year bestselling statistics… so what have we learned?

1 AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #583
2 BLACKEST NIGHT #1
3 CAPTAIN AMERICA REBORN #1
4 BATMAN AND ROBIN #1
5 BLACKEST NIGHT #2
6 BLACKEST NIGHT #5
7 BLACKEST NIGHT #3
8 BLACKEST NIGHT #4
9 CAPTAIN AMERICA #600
10 DARK AVENGERS #1

So what can we learn from this? Two lessons I think. Put a President on your cover when he’s getting inaugurated. And kill off all your heroes and replace them with stand-ins. As for graphic novels;

1 WATCHMEN TP
2 LOEG III CENTURY #1 1910
3 WALKING DEAD TP VOL 09 HERE WE REMAIN
4 WALKING DEAD TP VOL 10 WHAT WE BECOME
5 WALKING DEAD TP VOL 01 DAYS GONE BYE
6 SECRET INVASION TP
7 BATMAN RIP DELUXE EDITION HC
8 FABLES TP VOL 12 THE DARK AGES
9 STAND CAPTAIN TRIPS PREM HC
10 FABLES TP VOL 01 LEGENDS IN EXILE

The lessons here are be nice to Alan Moore and Robert Kirkman. And Bill Willingham wouldn’t be bad to have on hand either.
