Here’s the Top Ten most popular comics on GlobalComix for the week, as ranked by their popularity algorithm, which take into account engagement (e.g. comments, likes, adds to library) in addition to views.

As you can see, a few changes from two weeks ago. Invincible is down to the #2 spot, with the latest Digimon Liberator comic at #1.  Transformers, Love, inks, and museum links. The Boys, Scott Pilgrim and Something Is Killing the Children all return, joined by two Vault Comics: Barbaric and Moneyshot, both of which just debuted in vertical scrolling format this week. So looks like a successful rollout for this program. The Gragoness says Sit rounds out the top 10.

We’re still tinkering with the format for these charts so we’re trying a new one this time out. let us know what you like better – a table chart, or a more descriptive one.

(And do YOU have a sales chart of some kind you’d like spotlighted here at the Beat? Reach out!)

1. DIGIMON LIBERATOR, 49 pages – Published by Bandai Card Games

Shoto Kazama, a boy who has never been able to win at card games because of his habit of giving up on things easily, enters the immersive world of Digimon Liberator through the invitation of his childhood friend, Arisa Kinosaki.

The game allows players to engage in highly realistic card battles. At first, Shoto is hesitant towards it, but through his engrossing encounters with the Digimon there, he becomes a fan of the game.

Encounters with wild Digimon such as Pteromon and battles with NPCs who have gone rogue.

These various happenings set the wheels of fate in motion for Shoto and his companions.

——This is a story about Digimon, and the world.

Here at The Beat we’re committed to getting as much good data as we can, and that includes sales charts. The lack of reliable sales charts has been a real problem for the comics industry for a few years now, and a solution is far from imminent.

In the meantime, we’re bridging the gap with what we have access to. 


  1. useless article just meant to promote heidi friends at vault comics- garbage

    can we get some actual sales numbers instead of this tripe ?

  2. I prefer the table format. Thanks for the sales chart – even small windows onto the market are interesting.
