Welcome to the Comixology Bestseller list, your guide to see how well your favorite titles are selling digitally. Every week I’ll post the ranking of every new title, plus a ranking of the best-selling volumes and graphic novels. As always, I hope you’ll find it interesting and informative.

Batman: Detective Comics #978 cover by Eddy Barrows, Eber Ferreira, and Adriano Lucas

Good starts for some new books. The Immortal Men squeaked into the Top 10, with Domino and Exiles not far behind. Place your bets now on which of these three will have the longest run.

Even with no event and Action Comics M.I.A., DC still wins the Top 10 again with seven titles to Marvel’s three. Detective Comics is one of the best money makers in comics, Injustice 2 is a guaranteed seller every week, and DC knows they can always rely on Barry, Diana and Hal. It’ll be very interesting to see if the Marvel June relaunch can end this dominance.

On the Marvel side, X-Men Red is now in its third straight month in the Top 10. It’s currently Marvel’s second bestselling superhero title on Comixology (after Mighty Thor). Avengers is still going strong with two weeks left in the event, only missing out on the Top 10 twice.

Not a big week on the indie front. While Robert Kirkman‘s Oblivion Song has fallen slightly in the rankings, it’s still the best indie of week, beating Gideon Falls and Deadly Class. So how well is doing compared to other Kirkman titles? While OS probably won’t be reaching Walking Dead or Invincible numbers anytime soon, it’s still doing about the same as Outcast.

Well, it was too good to go on forever, and so Comixology’s 99 Marvel cent sale has ended. As such, there’s an abundance of items on the lists that either were on sale, or had a lower price. I suppose we’ll just have to live with the reoccurring 50%-67% discounts.
