Wednesday, November 28, 2007

Comics sales soared in the October 2007 report. A major factor in comparisons this month was the five week month; the same month in 2006 was a four-week month.

DC led market share categories for the first time in many months, in part due to landing 107 items in the Top 300 versus Marvel’s 80. Image’s dollar share of the Top 300 comics actually came in sixth; it landed in fifth place in the overall category.
