Marvel Maintains Over 15 Point Marketshare Lead Over DC In June 2015 As Renew Your Vows Indicates Desire For A Return To Watson-Parker Marriage

Posted by July 6, 2015 Comment

Amazing-Spider-Man-Renew-Your-Vows-2015-a906cMarvel Comics was June’s top publisher with a 40.86% dollar share and a 43.16% unit share, aintaining their over-15 point lead on DC Comics who are on 25.06% dollar share and a 28.03% unit share. DC’s much vaunted DC YOU mini-relaunch and promotion has not translated well into sales, it seems, at least not against Marvel’s Secret Wars crossover machine.

Meanwhile Image maintain their recent ten-percent-as-standard position with a 9.81% dollar share and a 10.83% unit share.

Marvel also dominates the top ten, with seven titles, and the Renew Your Vows spinoff coming just under the main Secret Wars series, emphasising the desire by a large number of fans for a return, in some for, of the Peter Parker/Mary Jane Watson marriage. If this demand continues through its run, will Marvel feel the need to keep supplying it?

And the launch of Bryan Hitch‘s Justice League Of America #1 beats out both the new Batman and the Justice League Darkseid War.

While the first volume of Scott Snyder and Jock‘s Wytches topped the graphic novel chart, ahead of the original graphic novel by Jim Starlin, Thanos: The Infinity Relativity, at #2.

Year on year, 2015 is beating 2014 by over 15% so far…
