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 & graphic novels. As always, I hope you find it interesting and informative.

It was a heavy week with lots of competition, so don’t be so distressed if your favorite title dropped. Final Top 10 score: DC 8, Marvel 2. Thor and Darth Vader are Marvel’s only books in the Top 10.

I was positive that Mister Miracle would hit No. 1. No doubt about it. Well, Brian Michael Bendis proved me wrong and Man of Steel #3 went straight to the top. I wonder if the time since the last issue played a part. Man of Steel’s previous issue was last week, while Mister Miracle’s was in April. Or maybe I’m just overthinking things.

At No. 7, Detective Comics has never dipped so low. Yes it’s still a Top 10 title, but it just got passed by Darth Vader and The Flash. And it got beat by a week-old Justice League issue. Seems there was a fair number of readers who finished James Tynion‘s arc and didn’t want to continue with a new writer. Turns out even Batman’s not invincible.

Plastic Man beats Wonder Woman and Hal Jordan in his debut? Not bad for a character who hasn’t a solo series since the 1980’s. This also marks Gail Simone‘s first appearance in the digital Top 10. (At least since I’ve been keeping track).

Mark Millar‘s first Netflix comic, The Magic Order, has an impressive debut at No. 16, and is this week’s highest-ranked indie comic. (Although if you have one of the biggest entertainment companies in the world backing you, is it still an indie comic?) The last indie comic to debut this high was Critical Role, and you could only get that comic digitally.

And to end on a personal note, I am saddened to see such a phenomenal comic, Kaijumax, down in the pits at No. 81. As comic fans, I’m sure we all have favorites that inexplicably rank near the bottom of this list. If there are some hidden gems you’d like to recommend, post them in the comments. Finding these hidden gems is one of many joys of this hobby.
