Sales Estimates for May, 2008

by  in Comic News Comment

“Secret Invasion” #2 was the best selling comic in May, 2008.

Below you’ll find the sales estimates for comics and trade paperbacks sold in the direct market for May, 2008. The sales numbers below are estimates based on the information provided by Diamond Comics Distributors earlier this month. Sales estimates for April, 2008 can be found here.

There are a couple of things to keep in mind when reading this data. First off, these are just estimates. These are not exact figures nor should they be treated as such. Second, this data only covers the direct market served by Diamond. It does not include newstands, book stores or overseas markets.

The breakdowns are for just the top 300 comics and top 100 trades listed below. These are not the overall market share. I only deal with numbers that I can see and kick around in my ever evolving number crunching system. Sometimes the numbers get a bit battered and bruised in the process.

The estimated total sales for the 300 comics was 7,754,397 comics which is up by 698,909 units from April and down by 20,292 units from May 2007. Marvel Comics had the largest percentage of the top 300 comics with 51.86% of the total units sold followed by DC Comics with 31.68%.

The top selling comic from Marvel Comics was “Secret Invasion” #2 in slot 1 with an estimated 200,344 units and for DC Comics was “Final Crisis” #1 in rank 2 with an estimated 159,036 units.

The estimated total sales for the 100 trades was 290,860 trades which is up by 42,868 units from April and down by 55,817 units from May 2007.

Topping the trades list in May was “Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 8” vol. 2 by Dark Horse with 10,425 units.

I’ve got bar charts of this data over on my website: www.ComicBookPage.com. Every month I discuss the comic book and collected editions sales estimates on my Comic Book Page podcast.

I’ll be back later with an analysis of the numbers below.
