Black Panther: The complete postal circulation data

Find Black Panther's first appearance on eBay

It’s been a while since we added some more Title Spotlights featuring all the postal circulation data associated with a specific title — so with the movie releasing, this seemed like a good time to take a tour of Black Panther‘s various titles with circulation data.

Black Panther’s debut in 1966’s Fantastic Four #52 sold 329,000 copies, according to Marvel’s first postal statement ever for that title; the 2016 series launch nearly matched that, with at least 287,000 copies sold by the end of the first year. In between, Marvel published postal circulation data in three of its Black Panther series; that and more is now online at Comichron.

You’ll find it here, starting with the first series for which there were postal filings: Black Panther, Vol. 2. It’s also the longest-running series to date, running from 1998-2003.

Black Panther Vol. 3 from 2005-08 and Vol. 4, published from 2009-10, finish out the data collection. The largest amount of Black Panther data on the site, of course, is in our monthly sales reports; use the search box atop any page to find more.
