Each month we are asked what the different rankings on the Top 300 list mean in terms of sales for each book. While the publishers and Diamond keep the total number of copies distributed closely guarded (the numbers are not released and those that do get printed are only estimates), they do provide a guide by which you can compare the success of one book to another.

The quantity ranking is obvious, it’s the ranking of comics based on total issues printed. The Retail Rank is based on the price of a specific issue and the overall dollars it produced in sales. Finally, there’s that enigmatic “index” number. The index shows retailers roughly how many of a product is being ordered in comparison to the other products. The index says that the average store orders 100 copies of Batman (a consistent seller) and then compares other titles to this.
In this month’s case, if “Batman” #627 sold 100,000 copies (we’ve no idea many it actually sold) that would mean the #1 comic, “Astonishing X-Men” #1, sold close to 275,000 copies (once again, we’ve no idea of the number of actual sales).

Before we move on to the full list, here are the debut positions of each publisher that made it into the Top 100 for April.

  • Marvel Comics – #1 – “Astonishing X-Men” #1
  • DC Comics – #2 – “Superman” #205
  • Dark Horse – #27 – “Conan” #4
  • Image Comics – #38 – “Witchblade/Wolverine One-Shot”
  • Aspen – #53 – “Soulfire” #0
  • Devil’s Due – #65 – “G.I. Joe” #29
  • Dreamwave – #93 – “Transformers Energon” #23
