Amazing Spider-Man comics sales across time

Thursday, May 3, 2007

by John Jackson Miller

I'm still working my way through getting more year-by-year data online, but there have been enough media requests in advance of Spider-Man 3 that I figured I'd go ahead and add one of the title pages that I intend to do, showing sales accoring to the Statements of Ownership across time.
Click for Amazing Spider-Man sales figures from the beginning in the 1960s to 2006. (Or, rather, 2005, as Marvel seems not to have run a form in it for the end of 2006, near as I can figure. If someone has one, drop me a line in the Forum. Marvel did run forms in some other titles for the year, just not this one, or so it seems.)

I'll do more of these title pages, linking from the year-by-year pages, in the future -- hopefully there will be enough for their own section at some point. Batman is next...


Yearly comics sales aggregate data now online

Wednesday, May 2, 2007

by John Jackson Miller

With Spider-Man 3 approaching fast, I have gotten a number of requests for yearly aggregate data in chart form. For quick reference, I've added the following to the main Yearly Reports page:
  • Overall Market Dollars (estimated range)
  • Overall Diamond Comics, Trade Paperback, and Magazine Sales
  • And for each of the 12 months of each year:
  • Unit Sales for Diamond's Top 300 Monthly Comics from each month of the year (hence, 3,600 comics)
  • Dollar Sales for Diamond's Top 300 Comics
  • Dollar Sales for Diamond's Top Trade Paperbacks from each month (number varies depending on Diamond's reportage)
  • Combined Dollar Sales for Diamond's Reported Top-Selling Comics and Trade Paperbacks
Additionally, there are annual averages for each year for prices of comics sold by Diamond, both raw and weighted by orders.
