ComiXology Bestseller List – 19th July 2019, Desperately Seeking Funko Pops

Matthew Snyder writes his regular dissection of digital comic book sales. 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.

Is everyone enjoying Comic-Con? I know I am. True, I may not be in San Diego, but I am participating in an annual Comic-Con tradition: grabbing all the exclusive Funko Pops sold around town.

Now Funko collecting does make me a little crazy. Brawls may or may not have been started, and arson may or may not have been committed. And I would I like to say to the good people of Hot Topic what happened with the giant ceramic pretzel was nothing personal. Unfortunately, my Uber driver is lost, EVEN THOUGH THERE’S ONLY ONE BARNES & NOBLE IN TOWN, so I have some time to talk about digital comic sales.

Alright, this is a pretty light week.  This is becoming more of a trend of late, with some release slates being clearly more loaded than others. This makes it more difficult to see how some titles are doing overall. But hey, just because a title made the Top 10 on an easy week doesn’t mean they get an asterisk put next to them. It’s still a big achievement. So with that, let’s look at the score:

  • Marvel: 30
  • DC: 21
  • Dark Horse: 4

It’s a familiar story: DC leads the 3rd week with Batman and Justice League but not much else, giving Marvel an opening to take the Top 10. Of course, DC could have a much better chance if they shifted one of their other big titles, like Flash or Young Justice, to this week. But should they shift their entire release schedule so they can win a meaningless Top 10 battle on the internet each week?

Yes.

This week is significant for one big reason, though: Uncanny X-Men and Age of X-Man is wrapping up to make way for Jonathan Hickman’s House of X. Now the multiple Age of X-Man miniseries have been all over the place on the sales chart, probably due to all the fatigue following the Infinity Wars, Spider-Geddon and War of the Realms miniseries.

However, Matthew Rosenberg’s Uncanny X-Men has finished at No. 3, and was often one of Marvel’s best digital sellers. It was a big improvement over X-Men Red, Blue and Gold, the latter two only cracking the Top 10 on slow weeks. And yes, I have seen complaints over character deaths and overall bleak tone of the series, but you what other series I saw those very same complaints towards? Heroes in Crisis, and that sold gangbusters. Once again, the majority of comments say one thing, and the people’s wallets say another. (Do people still say gangbusters? It sounds like a word that’s old but I have no clue how far back it goes. Maybe it’s new but just sounds retro. Hmmmm…..)

But as good as Uncanny X-Men has been, how well will Jonathan Hickman’s House of X do? Needless to say, expectations are high, as his return to Marvel has been one of the most talked-about topics in comics of late. Find out next week!

Alright, my Uber driver got me to Barnes & Noble in time. I got my Astronaut Snoopy Pop, so my Uber driver will get 5 Stars and the location of the antidote. Till next time!
