These estimates are based on ICv2 estimates of comic sales by Diamond North America during April, 2007.  We are estimating actual sales by Diamond U.S. (primarily to North American comic stores), using Diamond's published sales indexes and publisher sales data to estimate a sales number for Batman (the anchor title Diamond uses in its calculations), and using that number and the indexes to estimate Diamond's sales on the remaining titles.  We can check the accuracy of our numbers by comparing the Batman number that we calculate using multiple data points; our numbers for Batman are within 1/10 of 1% of each other, ensuring a high degree of accuracy.  They do not include sales made by Diamond UK, orders on these titles placed after the end of April, or copies purchased by Diamond but held in inventory at the end of April.  This information may not be reproduced in any format without also crediting Diamond Comic Distributors, Inc.

Marvel, DC, Dark Horse, Image, Devil's Due, Archie, Aspen, Dynamite Entertainment and Gemstone distribute 100% of their comic store orders through Diamond.  Some other publishers distribute directly to stores or through other distributors and as a result this analysis may underestimate their sales. 

 

Marvel, DC, Dark Horse, Image, Viz, and Archie distribute some of their titles through channels other than comic specialty stores, e.g., newsstands and bookstores.  These quantity estimates do not reflect distribution through those channels.

 

Most of the titles on this chart are also distributed to Europe by Diamond UK, which can account for significant sales for the publisher, ranging from 3-20% of the US numbers.  Sales by Diamond UK are not included in the numbers above.

 

One other factor to consider is that sales through Diamond and other comic distributors are non-returnable to retailers.  That means that there is a considerable unknown percentage of books unsold at the retailer level, probably amounting to 5-20% of sales.

For the top 300 comic actual orders in March, see 'Top 300 Comics Actual--March 2007.'

 

For an overview and analsysis of the actual March and an explanation of the transition to our new reporting, see 'Death Sells' and 'ICv2 Kicks Off New Top 300 Reporting.'  For an analysis of the dollar trends in March, see Comics Up 14% in Q1.'
