June 2014 Comic Book Numbers

14 Jul

June 2014 numbers are out for the North American direct market, Marvel is on top at 35%, Dc second at 33%, Image third at 10% for unit sales.   DC’s numbers were helped by various Bombshell variants put on their books (notably Harley Quinn catapulating into the top 5). Original Sin is one of Marvel’s lesser-performaning events in recent years, and it looks to not be much of a boost for many tie-ins in comparison to Dc’s just recently completed Forever Evil. Original Sins did debut at #50, much higher than Infinity’s tiein series’.

top 10 comics of June 2014:
1. Batman #32 DC 131K
2. Amazing Spider-Man #3 Marvel
3. Original Sin #3 Marvel
4. Harley Quinn #7 DC
5. Superman #32 Marvel (Johns/Romita’s first issue)
6. Original Sin #4 Marvel
7. Amazing Spider-Man 1.2 Marvel
8. Justice League #31 DC
9. Walking Dead #128 Image
10. Detective Comics #32 DC 72.9K

Top 100 non DC/Marvels:
9. Walking Dead #128 Image
11. Outcast #1 Image
20. Saga #20 Image
41. Wicked and Devine #1 Image
42. Serenity Leaves on the Wind #6 Dark Horse
77. Star Wars #18 Dark Horse
82. Sex Criminals #6 Imgae
86. Trees #2 Image
94. Big Trouble in Little China #1 Boom! 24K

Saga volume 1 has now sold over 100,000 copies. Afterlife with Archie #1 (11,733 copies) was the biggest selling trade of the month by more than double that of second place. It was also the first victory for Archie Comics.
2 through 10 were:
2. Night of Living Deadpool Marvel
3. Velvet vol 1 Image
4. Saga Vol 3 Image
5. Saga Vol 1 Image
6. Superior Spider-Man Vol 6 Goblin Nation Marvel
7. Batman & Robin Vol 3 Death of Family DC
8. Injustice Gods Vol 1 DC
9. Injustice Gods Vol 2 DC
10. Saga Vol 2 Image 3,271 copies

The lowest-selling Marvel ongoing not already cancelled is Avengers Undercover #6 at #126, 17,771 copies (Superior Foes is JUST above it). Iron Patriot was apparently a retroactive 5 issue mini and Ultimate FF was cancelled through #6.
The lowest-selling DC ongoing not already cancelled is Constantine #15 at #129 16,6704. DC does have six series below that playing out the string til their cancellation time.

My lowest-selling pull-list title is Letter 44 #7 at #263 on the list (6k copies!), though a trade of that is due out this month, so get ordering on this quality Charles Soule series.
