A five-week month compared to a five ship week month from the previous year, August 2007 still managed improvements in all categories except for the Top 100 Trade Paperbacks. The 300th place comic book had orders of 2,500 copies, which was a lot better than previous years where that figure had dropped close to 1,000 copies.

Overall, the comics Direct Market seemed poised for another strong year by August, up 10% after eight months.

Diamond, which had for a long time only included the dollar rankings for the Top 100 comics, restored the rankings for #101 through #300 to its electronic releases.
