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 months case, if “Batman” #620 sold 100,000 copies (it probably sold more than 100,000) that would mean the #1 comic, “Avengers/JLA” #2, sold just over 150,000 copies (once again, it probably sold more than that, too).
