6 month (-10.2%)
1 year (-15.9%)The title is sticking to that 10,000 mark. However what’s happening with issue 19? This seems to happen every year around this time as sales of an issue are split over two months. Presumably this is because stores on one coast get them the last week of a month, and stores on the other get them on the first week of the following month.

However, this does bring to light a problem with these charts. A single issue could, theoretically, sell just below #300 on the charts every month with reorders and rack up impressive sales that we don’t know about.

The big news this month is that IDW have become a premier publisher. I would include the percentages of the market various companies have, except there’s a fairly big error in the chart this month.

Other than massive errors, Buffy sees a small rise thanks to Brad Meltzer coming on as writer and the “big bad” being revealed, and a new Warren Ellis project from Avatar is the highest selling launch.

I’ve listed every title in the top 200, and a selection titles lower on the chart.

Thanks to icv2.com and Milton Griepp for permission to use these numbers, which can be found here.

==========
Just a reminder, all numbers on this chart are estimates for comics sold by Diamond to the direct market. They include reorders that shipped in the same month. Books shipping in the first week of a month will have more time for reorders to appear than ones shipping in the last week of the month, when reorders will slip to the following month. These numbers don’t include sales through Diamond UK.

Dynamite grabs the top indie comic spot this month with the first issue of their adaptation of Kevin Smith’s Green Hornet script. However, issue 2 sees a fairly large drop, and people seem unsure if the market can support the five Green Hornet titles Dynamite plans on launching.

Elsewhere on the chart Green Hornet Year One written by Matt Wagner is the second biggest indie launch of the month, The Guild and Terminator are Dark Horse’s newest launches, and Zenescope shipped a lot of books.

IDW had a 3.61% market share, and 4.02% dollar share, Dark Horse had 3.33% market share and 4.76% dollar share (gotta love those trade paperback sales), Dynamite had 3.08% market share and 3.40% dollar share, and Image had 3.01% market share and 3.22% dollar share.

I’ve listed every indie title in the top 225, every Dark Horse, Image, and IDW title in the top 300, and a selection of other titles.

03/2010: Kevin Smith Green Hornet #2 - 32,866 (-39.3%)
Woah, this did way better than I expected. Issue one was the number 11 book by dollar rank thanks to its $3.99 price. However, that drop for issue two is quite high, and with there soon to be five Green Hornet books on the stands I wonder what the numbers on some of them will be like.

Was it the Rob Liefled art that led to this increase? Possibly. In related news Image United is incredibly late, reportedly in part due to McFarlane being really late with his contributions. Issue three is now scheduled for May.

The top “indie” book on the charts this month is a $1 issue of The Walking Dead #1. However, none of the other Image $1 books have charted either this month or last, so I’m not sure how accurate this numbers is.

Invincible Returns was the best selling non-reprint #1 of the month, and led to a substantial increase for the regular issue of Invincible as well. While Turf #1, also from Image, was the highest launch of the month.

Image had a 4.26% unit share, and a 3.96% dollar share, Dark Horse had a 3.82% unit share and a 4.88% dollar share, IDW had a 3.41% unit share and a 3.92% dollar share. Dynamite fell to a 2.38% unit share and a 2.33% dollar share.

I’ve listed every “indie” title in the top 200, every title from Image, Darkhorse, and IDW, and a selection of others.

Thanks to icv2.com and Milton Griepp for permission to use these numbers, which can be found here.

Buffy returned to its usual position of top selling “indie” book this month, but its the last issue before it goes on hiatus for a few months.

“Hellboy in Mexico Or, A Drunken Blur” was technically the highest selling number one of the month, though I’m not sure if they bothered putting a number on it. Below that you have “Kevin Smith’s Kato” from Dynamite (plus another Green Hornet title further down the charts), “Star Wars Invasion: Rescue” from Dark Horse, and “Mysteary Society” from IDW as the top new launches.

Dark horse had a 3.16% unit share and a 4.45% dollar share, Image had a 3.14% unit share and a 4.26% dollar share, while IDW had a 2.95% unit share and a 3.79% dollar share.

I’ve listed every “indie” title in the top 200, every title from Image, Darkhorse, and IDW (ie. “the front of Previews”), and a selection of others.

After this issue Buffy is taking a break until September when Joss Whedon and Georges Jeanty return to write the finale of season eight (to be followed by season nine of course). Considering they knew this was coming, I’m pretty surprised that this large a break is necessary. There’s at least one one shot in there somewhere, but it still surprises me.

Another big drop this month, but there are still six covers here, which is inflating the number somewhat.

Highest numbers yet for this series. It looks like it’ll be the best selling non Marvel/DC title next month. Meanwhile the volume 5 hardcover is the number four best selling trade this month selling 3,878 copies. (Volume one in trade paperback sells another 2,303, bringing it’s total to something insane.)

Buffy may be on a break, but that doesn’t mean that a Joss Whedon book isn’t the top selling “indie” comic this month as Serenity takes the top spot. Further down the list we have lots of Red Sonja comics, a Goon spin-off by Eric Powell, and yet more adaptations of movies and TV shows.

Dark Horse had a 3.53% unit share and a 5.30% dollar share, Image had a 3.38% unit share and a 3.88% dollar share, and IDW had a 3.07% unit share and a 3.67% dollar share.

I’ve listed every “indie” title in the top 200, every title from Image, Darkhorse, and IDW (ie. “the front of Previews”), and a selection of others.

Thanks to icv2.com and Milton Griepp for permission to use these numbers, which are estimates, and can be found here.

50. Serenity (Dark Horse)

Red Sonja 50? Yeah, I’m a bit confused by that showing up now too. Apparently Dynamite are going to be continuing that series as well as Queen Sonja, plus other miniseries. Does the market really need that many Red Sonja titles? I can’t imagine it can support them all.

==========

Yeah, there's some formatting errors. I don't get them either.

Just a reminder, all numbers on this chart are estimates for comics sold by Diamond to the direct market. They include reorders that shipped in the same month. Books shipping in the first week of a month will have more time for reorders to appear than ones shipping in the last week of the month, when reorders will slip to the following month. These numbers don’t include sales through Diamond UK. They are low.
