Brightest Day issues top August 2010 comics charts

Diamond Comic Distributors announced that Brightest Day #7 from DC was the top-selling comic book in North America in August, based on orders from comics shops. And in the second spot? Brightest Day #8 — marking the first time this year that both issues of the two-a-month limited series have taken the top spots.

Scott Pilgrim Volume 6: Scott Pilgrim's Finest HourThere weren’t many big debuts this month, with the top-ranking first issue landing in tenth place, Green Lantern Emerald Warriors #1. Likewise, the trade paperback chart was topped by a familiar title: Scott Pilgrim’s Finest Hour, repeating its performance from July.

Last August the charts were topped by Blackest Night #2 among other heavy-hitter comics, so the comparatives will be strong — but it will be a four-week month versus a four-week month, so at least the calendar won’t be muddying the water this time out.

Diamond’s full charts are expected soon. Stay tuned!
