by Jeff

may130128 Diamond's Top 300 Comics for July 2013Media Release — Superman calls upon Batman’s assistance in dealing with a techno-anarchist terrorist cell in Scott Snyder and Jim Lee’s Superman Unchained #2 from DC Entertainment, the best-selling comic book in July.

In total, DC Comics had six of the month’s top ten best-selling comic books. Snyder and Greg Capullo’s Batman #22, part of the “Zero Year” story arc, ranked #2. Justice League #22, part of “Trinity War,” ranked #4. Batman Annual #2 ranked #5, and Batman/Superman #2 ranked #6.

The Guardians of the Galaxy confront Angela in Brian Michael Bendis and Sara Pichelli’s Guardians of the Galaxy #5, Marvel Comics’ best-selling comic for the month at #3.

Marvel Comics had three more titles in the top ten — Superior Spider-Man #13 ranked #8, Superior Spider-Man #14 ranked #9, and Superior Spider-Man Team-Up #1 ranked #10.

Robert Kirkman’s zombie epic continued in The Walking Dead #112 from Image Comics, the publisher’s top book for the month at #12.

Dark Horse Comics’ top book in July was Brian Wood’s Star Wars #7 which ranked #48 for the month.

Rounding out the premier publishers, IDW Publishing’s top book for the month, My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic #9, ranked #66.

Please note that comics marked with an asterisk have had their reported quantities reduced due to retailer returnability, and thus may rank lower on the charts than their actual sales would reflect.

Data for Diamond’s sales charts – which include the monthly market shares and all top product charts – are compiled by Diamond Comic Distributors from a universe of over 3,500 accounts, comprised of comic book specialty shops and other merchant stores and buyers. The shops are primarily located in North America, with a percentage of sales also to international stores and buyers located throughout the world. The account base includes not only brick-and-mortar comic book specialty shops, but also Internet stores, chain stores, and other specialty stores.

Unit and dollars sales are calculated based upon orders invoiced and shipped to Diamond accounts during any given month, which comprises initial pre-orders, advance reorders, and reorders, minus any copies that are received back from a title marked as returnable.

About the Diamond Sales Index: The Sales Index of selected monthly Best Seller Charts is presented as a comparative tool for retailers and publishers. It presents Diamond’s monthly sales for individual titles in relation to Diamond’s total sales for the issue of DC Comics’ monthly Batman comic book. (Batman is used as the control title – with a value of 100 – because sales of Batman usually remain relatively stable.) This allows for easy comparison to other titles and helps retailers gauge their orders for all other titles. This formula is only a guide, other factors may impact a titles’ ability to sell in certain locations and clientele.
