The Top 100 Comics And Graphic Novels Of February 2017 Sold To North America Comic Stores By Diamond

stl032781A follow-up on the marketshare data and courtesy of Diamond Comic Distributors, a look at the top 100 comics and graphic novels sold to comic book stores in February 2017. It missed out The Walking Dead #163, Invincible and Outcast as they all sold for 25 cents each and Diamond says that doesn't count.

Without the overshipped comics to bump up their chart positions in February, Marvel's sales are looking ropey compared to DC, bulked up by the fact that Marvel have more titles out in February. They top the chart with Darth Maul and have another Star Wars title in the top ten, but their best-selling superhero comic is Amazing Spider-Man #24 at #13 which didn't actually have any Spider-Man in it, a spinoff of Clone Conspiracy which only makes it in at #24. Big event book IVX #4 is slumped to #16, 5 book in the top 10, 8 in the top 30, 11 in the top 40, while DC Comics series that used to flounder – Flash, Superman, Wonder Woman, are doing far stronger than before. DC also benefits for a handful of their titles being made returnable, and their respective chart position sales are docked 10% as a result.

And is it me or does Green Lantern/Planet of The Apes look a little on the underordered side?
