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

ANT = Antarctic Press

ARC = Archie Comics

ASP = Aspen Entertainment

AVA = Avatar Press

BEC = Beckett Comics

BON = Bongo Comics

CAR = Cartoon Books

D&Q = Drawn & Quarterly

FAN = Fantagraphics Books

GEM = Gemstone

HAR = Harris Comics

IDW = IDW Publishing

KZR = Kenzer & Company

MIR = Mirage Studios

MNS = Moonstone

ONI = Oni Press Inc.

RAD = Radio Comix

SLG = Slave Labor Graphics

 

These estimates are based on ICv2 estimates of comic sales by Diamond North America during October, 2004.  They do not include sales made by Diamond UK, orders on these titles placed after the end of October, or copies purchased by Diamond but held in inventory at the end of October.

 

Marvel, DC, Dark Horse, Image, Devil's Due, Dreamwave and Aspen 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, and Image 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 100 graphic novels actual orders in September, see 'Top 100 Graphic Novel Actual--September 2004.'

 

For the top 300 comic actual orders in September, see 'Top 300 Comics Actual--September 2004.'

 

For an overview and analsysis of the actual September orders and an explanation of the transition to our new reporting, see 'Sales Slip in Seasonal Softnessand 'ICv2 Kicks Off New Top 300 Reporting.'  For an analysis of the dollar trends in September, see 'Comics and Graphic Novels Up 7% in September.'
