Posted by June 17, 2018 Comment

We broke down the monthly marketshare for April on Friday, now we expand with the Top 100 for comics and graphic novels, as ordered by North American stores in the direct market from Diamond Comic Distributors.

As well as these listed, BOOM! Studios’ Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #27 was their top book at #133, Frank Miller’s Xerxes: The Fall of the House of Darius and the Rise of Alexander #2 was Dark Horse’s top book at #129, Dynamite Entertainment’s Red Sonja/Tarzan #1 ranked #142, and IDW Publishing’s TMNT: Urban Legends #1 ranked #159.
