Diamond December 2008 sales data updated

Monday, January 19, 2009

Diamond continues its rollout today of the December 2008 comics sales figures, with a release of a longer (and corrected) market share list and the Top 100 Comics.

On the December number score: First off, my hunch was correct that the dollar and unit sales columns were reversed in last week's "sneak peak," so I'm glad I didn't post them. The corrected and expanded ones from Diamond are here, reproduced below:

As we can see, "other" is always higher in dollars than units.

The Top 100 comics are reproduced here — and we can see a new addition to the charts: "New This Month" replaces the "In Stock" column. This will be very helpful in light of the news of Diamond increasing its order minimums for publishers, since we'll be able to more quickly weed out the comics sold on reorder as we look to see where the dividing line really falls.
