2018 Comic Book Sales to Comics Shops

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


OVERALL North American Dollar Sales for Diamond's Comics,
Graphic Novels, and Magazines for the year (through OCTOBER)

around $438.38 Million

(up 0.4% year-over-year)

After 2017 was the first down year in six for the Direct Market, 2018 served as a year of recovery, with the year-and-a-half recession ending in spring.

A fifth shipping week in January helped the month to the smallest year-to-year decline in Direct Market sales seen since the previous spring, just under 2%. DC had a strong opening to the year, with dollar sales up 15% over its total from the previous January, aided by the chart-topping Doomsday Clock #3 and Dark Nights Metal #5. No Doomsday Clock issue in February made for a slow month in comics shops. But whereas comics and graphic novels were equally responsible for 2017's overall shortfall, a lackluster graphic novel slate was the main culprit in February's decline, with periodicals nearly, but not quite, holding their own. Graphic novel sales continued to be weak in March, a month which further saw nearly 100 fewer comics release than the same month in the previous year — but the comics that did come out sold relatively better, including the finale issue of Dark Nights Metal. The first quarter finished down a little less than 9%.

The month of April was big for the Direct Market, thanks to a comic book 80 years in the making: Action Comics #1000, which shipped with ten variant covers and had orders worldwide exceeding 500,000 copies; the North American first-month portion accounted for 450,000 copies. Dan Slott's Amazing Spider-Man #800 topped 410,000 copies in May, and at $9.99 it both helped the month beat the top month of 2017 — while also driving the average weighted cover price for comics up to $4.40 for a month. June didn't have the same huge landmark issues, though a new Justice League #1 did top 200,000 copies. While the month was unable to beat the second-best month of 2017, the quarter finished higher, ending a year-and-a-half run of quarterly declines.

The second half of the year opened strongly in July, thanks to Batman #50's July 4 midnight release, a new Amazing Spider-Man #1, and the surprise-shipped Die! Die! Die! #1 from Image. (The latter does not appear below, because its 80,000-or-so initial copies were sent to retailers for free.) Batman #50 and Catwoman #1 were later announced to be returnable, but those adjustments have not been made to the figures below. August saw Marvel's First Family return to the shelves with Fantastic Four #1 shipping nearly 369,000 copies. It was the second month of the year in which both comics and graphic novels increased in dollar sales year over-year — and that happened again in September, a month in which Marvel released Return of Wolverine #1 and in which Image had new graphic novel releases for three of its best-selling titles: Saga, Walking Dead, and Monstress. The third quarter finished up 6% in dollars.

Direct Market orders moved ahead for the year for the first time in October, a five-shipping week month highlighted by the Venom movie and the 15th anniversary of Walking Dead, for which Image offered 15 different "blind bag" editions.

Unit sales comparisons during the year are much distorted, due to Marvel's overships in January 2017 and Image's 25-cent anniversary issues, as well as the fact that the reported million-copy selling 25¢ book DC Nation #0 was not counted in Diamond's comparative charts. 2017 also saw significantly more new comics released than 2018 has had so far.

The chart below projects Diamond's end-of-year sales by collating the known sales for each month. Since most titles do not reappear on the charts after their first month, it underestimates final orders for each title to some degree — but where reorders are known, those have been added to the first month's totals. Now that the Top 500 comics are being reported each month, odds are better that the below list will capture a greater portion of any given comics' sales; final, all-inclusive figures for the year will appear here in early 2019 when Diamond releases them.

As of now, Batman #50's final position is speculative, because it was made returnable after the issues recorded below shipped. We will know its final sales at the end of the year.

The below captures everything reported through September. But there is reorder data for October that can be examined. You can also see the reorders that were placed during the whole year on our pages for reorders and advance reorders for 2018.

The chart below collates known information from Diamond's monthly charts for the year.
Items marked with single asterisks [*] had their reported orders reduced by 10% due to returnability.
Batman #50 has double asterisks, meaning it was retroactively returnable. Its final numbers may be lower.
Items marked with daggers [†] received a large portion of their orders from outside the comic shop market.
