September 1995 Comic Book Sales to Comics Shops

Estimated Comics Preorded by North American Comics Shops
from Diamond Comic Distributors


September 1995 was the first month that retailers had to order DC comics from Diamond Comic Distributors, rival Capital City's two-month stay having ended. Marvel had been gone from Diamond since July.

As noted below, Spawn #36 was the top-seller at Diamond — and as it was also selling through other distributors still, it was likely well above the top-selling DC book's sales. Retailers still had another month in which to order Dark Horse books from distributors besides Diamond; Image's exclusive would begin in December.

The month's actual top-seller was likely Uncanny X-Men #326, available only at Heroes World.

As with the previous month's market shares, Diamond looked at only "full-line" retailers -- those stores that were ordering from DC, Dark Horse, Image, and at least one other publisher.

This list includes all items on Diamond's Top 300 chart.
Marvel was not distributed by Diamond this month, and Diamond was the only distributor carrying DC comics. True industry-wide rankings would greatly differ.
