Comixology Bestseller List 14th July 2018 – Bend it like Bendis

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.

Rich asks – ‘can anyone find any building like this so close to the Gherkin?’

Brian Michael Bendis’s Superman takes the top spot this week, building off the momentum of Man of Steel. The Bendis era of Superman is already off to a great start, with Action Comics #1001 debuting in two weeks. (Although that will be very unlikely to hit No. 1, as it’s going up against Saga).

Joshua Williamson’s The Flash had its best ranking yet this week, with the 50th Issue hitting No. 2 on the chart. It’s been slowly climbing since the beginning of the year, taking the following spots on the New Title Rankings: 7, 6, 6, 6, 6, 6, 4, 5, 5, 3, 4, 3, 2. It appears some new and lapsed readers came on board for Flash War.

Spidey hits his highest ranking of the year at No. 3 with Nick Spencer’s Amazing Spider-Man. ASM couldn’t get into the Top 10 at the beginning of the year, but with the buildup to issue #800 and a new #1, it’s back into the elite tier of digital comics sales.

Dan Abnett’s Titans is back this month and it didn’t miss a beat, hitting its usual Top 10 spot. With a new team roster, a publisher might be tempted to renumber. But it looks like it didn’t need it. It’s refreshing in day and age to see a publisher not go straight for the reset button.

Remember when The Immortal Men was able to crack the Top 10 in April? 3 months later and it’s fallen to No. 31 in the New Title Rankings, with no signs of stopping the bleeding. In my humble opinion, perhaps it wasn’t the best idea for DC to launch 8 brand new series in such a short amount of time. Perhaps the New Age of Heroes books would be more successful if they debuted throughout the year. But that’s just speculation stemming from hindsight.

Robert Kirkman’s new surprise book Die!Die!Die! (German for The!The!The!) debuted at No. 36 in the New Title Rankings, far below the No. 20 debut of Kirkman’s Oblivion Song. I know digital wasn’t Image’s focus and Kirkman really wanted a surprise launch, but the sudden announcement may have killed the hype a new Kirkman book would’ve garnered. You never know with these things. We’ll see what the retailers have to say in Rich’s Sunday Bestseller List. (On a personal note, I think it already looks like another great Image title and I would definitely recommend it).
