apr120575d Diamond's Top 300 Comics for June 2012Media Release — Possessing the power of the Phoenix Force, Cyclops and his allies began to remake the world in their image in Jonathan Hickman and Olivier Coipel’s Avengers Vs. X-Men #6, the latest chapter of Marvel Comics’ 2012 event and the best-selling comic book to comics retailers in June.

In total, Marvel Comics had four the month’s top-selling books. Avengers Vs. X-Men #5 ranked #2; Spider-Men #1, the first part of Brian Michael Bendis and Sara Pichelli’s Marvel Universe/Ultimate Universe crossover story for Spider-Man’s fiftieth anniversary, ranked #9; and AVX Vs. #3, an Avengers Vs. X-Men tie-in comics, rannked #10.

DC Comics had six books in the top ten, led by Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo’s Batman #10, part of the “Night of the Owls” event, at #10. Geoff Johns and Jim Lee’s Justice League #10 was #4. DC Comics’ other four titles in the top ten were part of the Before Watchmen project — Before Watchmen: Minutemen #1 ranked #5, Before Watchmen: The Comedian #1 ranked #6, Before Watchmen: Silk Spectre #1 ranked #7, and Before Watchmen: Nite Owl #1 ranked #8.

Robert Kirkman and Charlie Adlard’s best-selling series from Image Comics, The walking Dead, continued its march to its hundredth issue with June’s The Walking Dead #99. The zombie comic ranked #30 for June.

IDW Publishing brought Topps’ fan-favorite Mars Attacks trading cards back to comics with Mars Attacks #1 from John Layman (Chew) and John McCrea (Hitman); the book ranked #44 for the month.

Rounding out the premier publishers, the adventures of Joss Whedon’s Slayer, Buffy Summers, continued in June’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 9 #10 which ranked #89.

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.
