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.

Hello, BC readers. This week, I’m writing from an underground bunker in the Nevada desert, as it was the only way avoid Avengers: Endgame spoilers. I will also be temporarily ignoring the comments until next weekend in case of spoiler bombers, so I’m afraid your questions will go unanswered till then.

Is this an extreme precaution? Absolutely. But if you could travel back in time and watch Empire Strikes Back unspoiled, would you?

Auto Draft

Anywho, it was a pretty typical third week. Batman & Justice League took the top spots, but it was Marvel domination the rest of the way. Here’s the Top 10:

Marvel: 34

DC: 19

It shouldn’t have been surprising: Just look at how many more Marvel titles there were this week. No wonder market share is the way it is when Marvel puts out 6 or more tie-ins for every event, and it gives every character possible the Old Man treatment.

Oh, would you look at me? Marvel wins big and the first thing I do is mock them. Well now that it’s been almost a year since Fresh Start, I’m going to give Marvel a fair assessment. And that assessment is: pretty damn good.

Yes, a few titles have faltered. Some didn’t move at all, while others got a boost and fell back to their Legacy numbers. But overall, Fresh Start has been a net positive for Marvel’s digital sales.

The biggest development was the return of the Fantastic Four, which was responsible for Marvel’s first and only No. 1 in the New Issue Rankings. And while the hype may died down a tad, it’s still a very strong performer. Uncanny X-Men is performing better than X-Men Gold, Blue or Red. Avengers and Amazing Spider-Man are still elite titles almost a year in. Miles Morales is now a Top 10 regular. Venom and Guardians of the Galaxy have shown huge improvement (people can’t get enough of Donny Cates it seems), along with Daredevil and Captain Marvel. And let’s not forget Immortal Hulk, debuting with a 20 spot rise over the previous main Hulk title, and remaining consistent.

I’ve given Marvel a lot of crap over the past year, poking fun at their sales strategies and asking why they didn’t do better. But they have turned themselves around for the better in the past year, and that deserves recognition. And yes, they still can’t beat Batman or Superman, but honestly, who among us could?
