IDW Makes a Move

Hits #4 Market Share in Comic Stores

Published: 09/16/2008 12:00pm

Powered by its Whedon (Angel, Spike), Transformers, Dr. Who, Star Trek, and other licensed titles (see “Top 300 Comics—August 2008”), IDW hit the #4 market share rank in comic stores in August, a new high for the company.  IDW topped Image, which has generally held the #4 slot.  Marvel, DC, and Dark Horse held their customary top three slots. 


While one month does not a trend make, IDW has been steadily expanding both its roster of licenses and its in-house titles.  At the very least, IDW appears to be ready to compete for a higher rank on an ongoing basis.
