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.

The links lead to current listings for each issue on eBay. You can also find the books at your comics shop.
