Sales Estimates for March, 2009

Below you'll find the sales estimates for comics and trade paperbacks sold in the direct market for March, 2009. The sales numbers below are estimates based on the information provided by Diamond Comics Distributors earlier this month. Sales estimates for February, 2009 can be found here.

There are a couple of things to keep in mind when reading this data. These numbers are just estimates for the sales through Diamond to direct market retailers. It does not include any sales outside of the Diamond channel such as newstands, book stores or overseas markets. Since the majority of habitual comic book readers are served through this sales channel, these numbers are a good indicator of the core sales trends at the retail level. While not all copies will sell to readers, each retailer is buying what they think they can sell so the trends at the retail level should be a close enough reflection of the sales trends at the reader level for the purposes of discussion.

The breakdowns are for just the top comics and top 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 5,322,773 comics which is down by 311,490 units from February and down by 762,951 units from March 2008. Marvel Comics had the largest percentage of the top 300 comics with 51.36% of the total units sold followed by DC Comics with 28.40%.

The top selling comic from Marvel Comics was "Dark Avengers" #3 in slot 1 with an estimated 96,523 units and for DC Comics was "Batman Battle for the Cowl" #1 in rank 3 with an estimated 91,597 units.

The estimated total sales for the 300 trades was 396,109 trades which is up by 105,109 units from February and up by 160,555 units from March 2008.

Topping the trades list in March was "Watchmen" by DC Comics with 32,124 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.
