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, 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 Guide number. Diamond explained it to CBR News a couple of months back:

“The guide shows retailers roughly how many of a product is being ordered in comparison to the other products. The guide says that the average store orders 100 copies of Batman (a consistent seller) and then compares other titles to this.”

So, this month “Batman #611” sits in the #1 position. “Ultimate War #3” sits in the #2 position with a guide number of 88.65, meaning that “Ultimate War #3” has a print run of almost 89% that of “Batman #611.”
