Market Share, Top 300 Comics, Top 50 Graphic Novels Actual Sales for February, 2003

by  in Comic News Comment

Every month Diamond Comics Distributors sends out the top sales lists for all comics publishers. Generally, those numbers are based on initial orders, those orders placed by comic stores the first time around. Those lists do not include reorders placed by comic stores looking to increase their inventory of a specific comic or product. Marvel comics has a no-reorder policy, so with that in mind comic stores generally place higher initial orders on Marvel product because they know that once they place the order that’s it for the month. Most every other publisher doesn’t share that same policy, so comic stores may place orders for additional copies of say “Superman” based on customer demand. While in the initial orders charts Marvel usually comes out as the top publisher each month, when you factor in reorders DC often comes out even or on top and publishers like Image see their slice of the pie increase.

Below you’ll find the February, 2003 Market Shares based on actual sales of product invoiced in February, 2003. The February, 2003 numbers based on initial orders can be found here. And for those who are interested, check out the March, 2003 preorders list.
