Diamond’s sales overall increased by nearly a third — 32% year over year, with the market posting its best January in dollar terms since 1997. 

In addition to such events as Civil War and strong year-over-year improvements for several titles, the calendar and the climate played a role. January 2007 had five shipping weeks, versus four in the previous year. And it actually may have had six, in a sense, given the delays in shipping comics to the West Coast due to inclement weather in the final week of 2006.

Several titles shipping the week after Christmas appear to have charted with higher reorders than might normally be expected, suggesting that their sales may have been accounted for in January rather than December. In any event, the 20% increase in Top 300 Comics unit sales was stellar for a month in which publishers once feared to print. January actually had higher sales than the previous September; a winter month topping a summer or fall month is close to unheard of.

Diamond did not release the dollar sales rankings for the comics in 101st through 300th place this month.
