Notes on this chart:

Some titles have been truncated or abbreviated for space reasons.

Publisher abbreviations have also been used.

MAR = Marvel Comics

DC = DC Comics

DAR = Dark Horse Comics

IMA = Image Comics

DEV = Devil's Due Publishing

DRE = Dreamwave Productions

CAR = Cartoon Books

CRO = CrossGen

BON = Bongo Comics

HAR = Harris Comics

IDW = IDW Publishing

 

These estimates are based on ICv2 estimates of comic sales by Diamond North America during April, 2004.  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.

 

Marvel, DC, Dark Horse, CrossGen, and Image 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, and CrossGen 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 50 graphic novels actual orders in March, see 'Top 100 Graphic Novel Actual--March 2004.'

 

For the top 300 comic actual orders in March, see 'Top 300 Comics Actual--March 2003.'

 

For an overview and analsysis of the actual March orders and an explanation of the transition to our new reporting, see 'Comic Numbers Pick Up in Marchand 'ICv2 Kicks Off New Top 300 Reporting.'

 

For links to all previous Top 300 Comic and Top 50 Graphic Novel articles (going back over three years, including preorder analysis through March 2003 and actual order analysis beginning March 2003) see: 'ICv2's Top 300 Comics and Top 50 GNs Index.'
