October sales: Marvel crushes it

Late ship, late schmip: despite well documented problems getting their product out on time, Marvel still crushed it in October, according to sales figures just released by Diamond. Marvel opened up a commanding 22% lead in dollar share and a 26% lead in units...in fact Marvel 48% of units is the largest margin I remember seeing since I started doing these charts—and they only shipped 68 titles compared to 80 in September. And in another rare occurence, the entire top 10 periodical comics were Marvel. Ouchie. It's another kick in the grass for DC's nascent DC You line and means DKIII can't come soon enough. DC's unit share of 21.85% (down from 26% in September) and units of 22.92% (down from (26.32%) are also lows. Image was #3 with single digits once again.

DC Comics Month-to Month Sales: August 2015 – Bombshells Return

Greetings, sales charts fans! It's time once again to look at DC's sales figures. Back in June 2014, DC kicked off their freely-orderable variant (f.o.v.) cover program (or as DC has taken to calling them, open-to-order variants) with Bombshell variants with covers by Ant Lucia that evoked pin-up art from the 1940s. It was a big success, with the comics sporting them seeing huge gains and has spun off into a line of statues. So it makes sense that DC would want to return to the Bombshells theme, and this month sees a batch of all-new Bombshells covers as well as the launch of a DC Comics Bombshells comic (reprinting the digital-first comic of the same name). It's a moderate success this time out, especially compared to last month's Teen Titans Go! variants (all of those sporting both variants see a jump up in sales this time out), and the comic itself sells very well for a digital-first comic. While we can be fairly sure that the f.o.v.s are giving a boost beyond the natural sales level for titles bearing them, it is clear that the size of that boost is greatly dependent on the demand for that month's theme (or rather the perceived demand by retailers, which as in all cases on these charts has to stand in for actual consumer demand).
