April 2022 marked the two-year anniversary of DC's partial (and later total) departure from its North American distribution agreement with Diamond Comic Distributors, and six months since Marvel moved to Penguin Random House for much of its distribution. It also appeared to be a very light month for new releases, with around 339 new comics out from all publishers, including DC. That compares with 474 in January 2022. The month saw both a paper shortage and supply chain issues, both of which reportedly have had an impact.

Diamond's comic-book orders during the month were led by Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Last Ronin #5, a chart-topping end for the IDW mini-series whose run began a year and a half earlier. Orders were estimated at more than 111,000 copies once Diamond's returnability penalty was removed.

The comic book that placed second in Diamond's raw chart, however, certainly would have led sales had Diamond been its sole distributor. Amazing Spider-Man #1, another reboot of the venerable series, had orders over 92,000 copies just at Diamond, and likely would have topped a quarter-million copies including those distributed by Penguin Random House. Hulk #6 would also likely have well outsold Diamond's overall leader.

Diamond divided Brzrkr #8's orders into multiple entries, due to its having variants with differing cover prices; when combined, the issue's orders would have put it in fourth place. Something is Killing the Children #22 likewise would have wound up in fifth place with all orders combined.

Marvel accounted for 28% of the Top 300 comics and top 300 graphic novels at Diamond in dollar terms, as opposed to 19.5% for Image, and 11% for IDW and Boom.

April 2022 had four New Comic Book Days at Diamond, Penguin Random House, and DC's distributor, Lunar — the same as April 2021, which had four for both Diamond and Lunar. Diamond did not report its sales in that month, however, making comparisons speculative; we have to go back three years to get to an official Diamond comparative. Diamond reported data on 400 comic books in April 2022 with sales of 2.72 million copies (just 2.69 million for the top 300). Those sales total $12.83 million. Diamond sold 5.84 million copies of its Top 300 comics in March 2019 for $24.3 million, but that included DC and all of Marvel's distribution.

In October 2021, the month after Marvel moved its distribution, Diamond appeared to continue to represent about 36% of orders for Marvel's new comics as a wholesaler; looking at the first quarter sales from 2022, that ratio appears to still obtain. If correct, Marvel titles would fill out the Top Five, as seen here:

Adding projected Marvel copies sold by Penguin Random House, the Top 400 moved around 4.33 million copies for $20.34 million (4.29 million copies for $20.08 million, counting just the Top 300).

Comichron estimates that if DC and comics not in the Top 400 were to be included, industrywide comic-book orders were between 6 and 7 million copies, which compares with 6.34 million copies in April 2019. Dollar sales would have been between $29 million and $30 million, about 20% higher.

Overall Direct Market comics and graphic novel orders likely would have been between $43 million and $45 million
, which compares with $37.75 million in April 2019.

With further changes to available data, Comichron for 2022 altered how data is presented below. In both the comics and graphic novel charts, Diamond's chart appears as it released it, with our direct estimates and then an additional column that accounts for projected overall Marvel sales.

The "Estimated Units" column is based directly on Diamond's reported Order Index numbers, and both the Units and Dollar rankings are the ones in the report Diamond released. By default, the table shows Diamond's original rankings. Diamond applies a 10% penalty to returnable issues, and this is noted by an asterisk (*) by the issue's number.

The "Projected" column in yellow restores that penalty to returnable issues in order to show the actual number that retailers ordered  — and it also projects the number of copies that Marvel sold overall, based on the percentage of Marvel's business that Diamond retained in October 2021 when Marvel moved its distribution business to Penguin Random House, which is estimated to be around 36%. To resort the chart to see where Marvel and returnable titles probably ranked, click on the arrow atop the "Projected" column. If you want to restore the original order, just click on the "Units" column.

The projections for Marvel are dependent upon the ratio mentioned above, but we expect that the share of each Marvel title's sales represented by Diamond would oscillate from month to month. As with any estimates on Comichron, they are subject to change pending the availability of more precise information.

DC titles have not been integrated into the main chart at this time, but appear separately in a chart further below. The leader among DC comics in April was projected to be Justice League #75.

DC comics were distributed by Lunar Distribution during the month, and it again did not provide sales information to retailers or consumers. Comichron's projected order of finish, based on a subset of retailer initial orders, is below. We are not projecting copies sold per issue or integrating them with the industrywide data at this time.

This list includes all DC items released by Lunar Distribution in the month.
Differently priced variants appear fused together by default near where they'd have ranked if together.
Distributor charts are regional commodity reports, not measures of a work's total reach. Read our FAQ.
The links lead to current listings for each item on eBay. You can also find the books at your comics shop.
