Ranking USA Comics January 2018: DC and Marvel monopolized the market
The 2018 opens with a month consists of 5 weeks, this helps to stem the decline of the market highlighted frightfully from the data of December and all of 2017 – you can find them here – but this is not enough: compared to January of 2017 the month of the four weeks, January 2018 ended with a decline of 1.97%, but an ascent of 2.13% compared to December 2017.
January 2018 also confirms the trend of recent months: the DC Comics and Marvel comics divide by “actually” in the market. The first is in the lead for the comics sold with the 38.94%, compared to the 36.69%, the second will earn more with the 34-30%, compared to 33.80%. Reappeared timidly the Image at about 10% but we are still far from the excellent results of the first half of 2017.
To cope with this market cross-section the sole distributor Diamond has compiled two Top 10 separate comic books sold and dollars earned.
Top 10 comicbooks: DC Comics is the first by placing 6 titles in the top 10 positions. And’ the convergence of securities that the DC where the usual Batman joins the two events Doomsday Clock, and Metal. The comic best-selling Doomsday Clock #3 that sells little more than 157.000 copies. The Marvel square 3 titles while The Walking Dead #175 is a half square ranking and is once again the only title Image in the Top 100!
Top 10 graphic novels & tradepaperbacks: ranking extremely heterogeneous in relation to the dollars earned. The Legend of Korra Volume 2: the Turf Wars Part 2 the volume and more sold with about 6,200 copies but the volume that has the most to gain is instead Vision HC.
Some considerations: most of the DC series sells between 20 and 29 thousand copies. There is a vacuum in the range of 80-90 thousand copies, and in the 60-69 thousand, was, in substance, there are comics that sell those copies; for example, Batman traveling between 90 and 100 thousand copies, leaves his head mate Detective Comics only 50 thousand copies. The DC has already prepared changes with the arrival of Bendis and Scott Snyder who will take the reins of the Justice League we'll see if in the coming months, there will be others.
Of against the Marvel is still too dependent on #1, and the variant cover and to the events that you reach a plateau between 100 thousand copies for the #1, and about 70 thousand for the #2. The rest of the line instead settles between 10 and 39 thousand copies with a blank already from the 60 mile copies up to a few months ago, was filled by the series badged Star Wars.
