October 2000 Comic Book Sales to Comics Shops

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


A down month without many major launches, but Ultimate Spider-Man was picking up heat in reorders not represented on the charts. X-Men titles returned to their usual logos.

Diamond did release dollar rankings for the Top 300 comics; these will be added at a later date.

Click to skip to the Top Graphic Novels for the month.

—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.
Entries with asterisks (*) combine sales from multiple identically-priced covers.
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.
