Superman #9 Tops ComiXology Bestseller List – But There Are Changes To Come

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.

Superman leads the charge for DC this week, culminating in a 7-3 win for DC in the Top 10. Well it would be, except I’m now changing the rules! Mwahahahaha!

Wait, before you accuse me of being a Marvel shill, let me explain. Many of you have complained in the comments over the months that the Top 10 competition should be changed. Many times DC would take the top spots, Marvel would take the bottom spots, and it would end in a tie. If DC dominated the top half of the Top 10, how can it be a tie, you ask? Well I secretly agreed, but didn’t know how to fix it. That was until commenter Luiz Felipe Oliveira Champloni came up with an idea: “First place gets 10 points, second place wins 9 and so on…”

And that makes sense. The higher you rank, the more points you should get. True, we still don’t know what the sales are, but now we have a system that better reflects what the top books are selling. So, for the time being, I’m now using the Champloni points system. So this week’s score is: DC 43, Marvel 12. Now I admit this new system will favor DC. So to any Marvel fans mad at this new development, well… tough titty said the kitty when the milk went dry.

But never let it be said I’m not a man of the people. You’ll have a chance to vote on it. Rich can you summon a poll?

Thanks, Rich. Now to some quick hits:

People must be excited for the new Hunted arc in Amazing Spider-Man, as the Wall-crawler hit No. 3 overall. Credit to Nick Spencer and Humberto Ramos, as they have kept the high readership hooked throughout the months. Amazing Spider-Man might be Marvel’s best selling digital title at the moment, but I wouldn’t know for sure unless it faces off against Fantastic Four in the same week.

Last month, Wonder Twins was a surprise hit, cracking the Top 10. But in its second issue, it has dropped 10 spots, falling all the way to No. 20. (No. 18 in the New Title Rankings) Ouch. The same thing happened to the Immortal Men, and we all know that turned out…

G. Willow Wilson is my most valuable writer of the week. Not only is Wonder Woman still putting up great numbers, but we now see what happens when she’s not on Ms. Marvel. Magnificent Ms. Marvel has debuted at No. 21 (No. 19 in the new Title Rankings). Wilson had a loyal group of digital readers that kept Ms. Marvel in the Top 15 for a long time. Without her, many of those readers have moved on.
