March 2000 Comic Book Sales to Comics Shops

Estimated Comics Preordered by North American Comics Shops
Based on Reports from Diamond Comic Distributors


Comics got their act together a little bit on the dollar side, thanks to the strong showing of X-Men #100.

Diamond did release dollar rankings for the Top 250 comics; these will be added at a later date.

—John Jackson Miller


This list includes all items on Diamond's Top 300 chart.
Items marked (resolicited) were offered in an earlier month but never shipped; disregard any previously reported figure, as earlier orders were canceled when the books were resolicited.
Distributor charts are regional commodity reports, not measures of a work's total reach. Read our FAQ.
The links lead to current listings for each issue on eBay. You can also find the books at your comics shop.
