If December was a rough month for comics, January gives us glimpses of several titles that haven’t been on the chart for quite some time. Titles like Purgatori from Dynamite Entertainment, Borderlands Fall of Fyrestone from IDW, and Zero from Image made reappearances that let us know how these series were doing.
This month 142 independent titles hit the top 300 list, which is up from last month’s total of 133. Even with the addition of nine titles to the list, sales were down 7.6% compared to last month’s 1,506,427. That brings the average number of comics sold to 9,867, which is also down from last month. There’s plenty of room for these numbers to grow in the year 2015.
