September 2013 Comic Book Sales to Comics Shops

Estimated Comics Shipped to North American Comics Shops
Based on Reports from Diamond Comic Distributors


In the 1980s, September was called "Black September" in the comics market, owing to a back-to-school dropoff in volume — but 2014 was part of a string of years with major publisher events in the month. As such, DC's "Villains Month" prompted North American comics retailers to order in record volume in September.

The event, which saw many DC titles splitting for the month into several issues featuring different stories and 3-D covers, spearheaded a $48 million month for the trade overall. each (apart from the chart-topping Forever Evil #1) numbered as part of a parent title: for example, Batman #23.1 featured the Joker, #23.2 featured the Riddler, #23.3 featured the Penguin and #23.4 starred Bane. While each title was intended to have a 3-D cover, demand resulted in the printing of a second "standard edition" version. The result was that DC had 129 new comics releases in September, of which 128 made the Top 300; that figure was only one less than its record high from early in the DC relaunch.

That $48 million figure is the largest non-inflation adjusted dollar amount for orders seen to that point the 2000s, beating both the previous month and the previous September by more than $9 million. Despite the high month-to-month volatility recently, the quarter overall was up 7.64%.

More comics were sold of the 300th-place comic book than any time in the Diamond Exclusive Era; Diamond apparently responded by listing the Top 400 comics in full, a practice it continued to do for some months. Diamond laterwent back to the Top 300, with one source reporting that the shift to 400 had been in error.
