OCTOBER 2012

Well guys, Diamond Comic Distributors, Inc. announced the comic book and graphic novel sales figures for the month of September.

Before we get to the nitty-gritty of which of the big two won, let’s first start with the news that all comic fans need to hear…  it looks like another line-wide re-launch is off to a spectacular start!

PREVIEWSworld shared this:

In total, Marvel Comics had five books in October’s top ten. Avengers Vs. X-Men #12, the grand finale to Marvel’s summer event, ranked #2. A+X #1, the debut of a new anthology series spinning out of Avengers Vs. X-Men, ranked #5. AVX Vs. #6, the final issue of the “fights only” companion series to Avengers Vs. X-Men, ranked #8, and AVX: Consequences #1, the first issue of a special follow-up series to Avengers Vs. X-Men, ranked #10.

And The Comic Chronicles had this to say about the sales revenue:

On top of having the highest dollar-value month for combined comics and trade paperbacks since tracking of that figure became possible in 2003, October saw retailers ordering more dollars worth of the Top 300 trade paperbacks than they ever have before — more than $8.6 million worth.

To sum it all up my fellow fanboys and fangirls, it was an exceptional month lead strongly by Marvel NOW!
