Marvel Have Only Got Two Books In July’s Top 20

Posted by August 14, 2016 Comment

STL009768I called it a rout on Friday and was castigated for it. But the full Top 100 stats for comic books sold to North American comic book stores in July 2016 bears me out.

Marvel have two books in the top ten.

They still only have two books in the top twenty, and that’s because Civil War II came out twice.

They have six in the top thirty.

They have eight in the top forty.

At which point you get the traditional wall of Marvel. But DC dominate with 2/3 the number of titles Marvel has, and thirty of the top forty.

There is also strong performances for the Archie Comics’ launch of Betty & Veronica #1 by Adam Hughes at #37.

Here are the stats, courtesy of Diamond Comics.
