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

ALI = Alias Enterprises LLC

ANT = Antarctic Press

ARC = Archie Comic Publications

ASP = Aspen MLT Inc.

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 January, 2006.  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 January, or copies purchased by Diamond but held in inventory at the end of January.

 

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, 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 300 comic actual orders in December, see 'Top 300 Comics Actual--December 2005.'

 

For an overview and analsysis of the actual December orders and an explanation of the transition to our new reporting, see '21 of 23 Top Comics Down in December' and 'ICv2 Kicks Off New Top 300 Reporting.'  For an analysis of the dollar trends in December, see 2005 Graphic Novel Sales in Comic Stores Up 33%.'
