Big media events helped propel comics orders for the first quarter of 2007 to a finish 12% over that of the same time the previous year. The attention surrounding the death of Captain America and the 300 movie helped round out a quarter which in past decades had been a momentum-killer for the business. Overall, the market was actually down slightly year-over-year for March, but it was up in all narrower categories, and the strength of January and February helped boost the quarter overall.

Marvel's Captain America #25 topped the list, and Diamond recorded all versions of the issue together with a total of 290,500 copies. Approximately 193,000 of the copies were the original version, with the Epting cover accounting for the remainder. Not counted in that total are the copies shipped to the United Kingdom market.

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