Indie Month-to-Month Sales September 2013: Star Wars beat The Walking Dead


It’s a very strange month this month. With DC producing two versions of all of their Villains Month books, there are only 109 indie titles charting in the top 300, down on last month’s 153. Lots of titles missed the top 300 this month, but will no doubt return next month.

Despite that, they sold an estimated 1,521,695 comics, only 60,000 less than last month’s 1,581,067, on 44 titles less. This was mainly due to a lot of big new titles, seven of the top 14 titles are new entries, selling over 20,000 copies each. It also means that the average sales this month are 13,960, massively up from last month’s 10,333. If it hadn’t been for Villains month, it would have been a big month for indie.
