“Spider-Verse,” “All-New Captain America” Lead Marvel to Top of November Sales Charts

More Spider-Men means more comics sold for Marvel as “Spider-Verse” made “Amazing Spider-Man” #9 the top-selling single issue in November 2014 according to Diamond Comic Distributors. ASM #10 came in at #4 on the Top Ten chart.

Spidey was joined by a number of other characters in ushering Marvel to another month of sales dominance, with Sam Wilson’s first month starring in “All-New Captain America” landing in the #2 position. “Spider-Woman” benefitted from the #1 on its cover, as well as its own “Spider-Verse” ties, debuting at #5, while the female Thor remained strong at #6 for her second issue. “Superior Iron Man” #1, and “Avengers and X-Men: AXIS” #4 and 5 took spots 7, 8 and 9.

DC Comics saw “Batman” drop to #3 thanks to Marvel’s stronger than usual performance at the top of the chart. “Justice League” #36 was the only other DC title to land in the top ten, taking the #10 position.

Overall, Marvel handily ruled the Direct Market, commanding 34.88% of all dollars spent, while making up 37.82% of all issues sold. DC was the number two publisher overall, with Image Comics sitting at #3 with a 10.62/11.06% market share. Image’s numbers were shored up in large part thanks to its continuing strong presence on the Graphic Novels and Trade Paperbacks list, with volumes of “The Walking Dead,” “Saga,” and “The Wicked and the Divine” all charting in the top five.
