“Justice League of America” Tops February Sales Charts

Diamond Comics has released its Top Ten charts for products released in February 2013, and the Geoff Johns/Dave Finch-powered “Justice League of America” debuted at the top spot, outselling Brian Michael Bendis and Chris Bachalo’s “Uncanny X-Men” #1. The rest of the top Ten split between Marvel and DC, with issues of “Batman, “Justice League” and “Superior Spider-Man” filling the top five.

Marvel remained the number one publisher for the month in both unit and dollar share, with DC Comics remaining second and Image, , IDW and Dark Horse rounding out the top 5.

Overall comics sales were up from January while graphic novel sales dropped significantly. February’s top-selling graphic novel was “Nemo: Heart of Ice,” Alan Moore and Kevin O’Neill’s latest “League of Extraordinary Gentlemen” story while Dark Horse’s undeniably successful “Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Historia” remained the best-selling book.
