March 2024 Comic Book Sales to Comics Shops

Comics and Graphic Novels Reordered by North American Comics Shops
Based on Reports from Diamond Comic Distributors

Of the three major distributors for comic books to comics shops — Diamond Comic Distributors, Penguin Random House, and Lunar DIstribution, the only sales reports currently released by any of those distributors are reorder charts from Diamond. They are seen below and added as they're released each week. Follow @Comichron on Facebook and Twitter to get the alert when new charts are added.

Several weeks ago, retailers began placing advance reorders for items whose initial order deadlines had passed, but which had not yet released at the time the reorders were placed. These reorders, placed further out than regular reorders, tend to be more speculative in nature, as there is less certainty that stock will still be available. But they do give us the farthest-into-the-future look at potential sales. To see potential sales for this month, you generally want to look at the advance reorders placed from the month before.

Note that the listings mix hardcovers, softcovers, and comics together, and that they also rank items by dollars rather than units. Note, too, that advance reorder charts are ranked by retail dollars, so retailers' discounts have not yet been applied. There is no guarantee that these advance reorders will be filled. It's also likely that a lot of books in these lists won't synch up exactly with this month; reorders are placed all the time and reported weekly, while comics sales are reported monthly.

Reorders, by contrast, are orders for items that had already been released at the time of the order. In other words, these are the comics customers have been asking for, generally speaking; while deep discounts also put titles on these lists, the charts are ranked by invoiced dollars, which is what retailers actually paid.


Reorder charts will be released weekly during the month. Stay tuned!

The true top sellers for the month will replace this page should they be released by Diamond.
