Diamond releases Top 300 lists for November 2009

by John Jackson Miller
Diamond Comic Distributors has released the Top 300 Comics and Trade Paperback lists for November 2009, as well as the full Market Shares; they can be found now on Comichron pending our calculations of our estimates. As discussed here earlier, the full range of data required to calculate Overall Sales and other statistics is not usually available until midmonth.

Still, the lists give us some details to work with, including a larger-than-usual number of entries after the Top 300. Diamond released a table with the Top 50 comics for publishers with market shares less than 1%; that resulted in some additional data points.

The average price of comics offered in the Top 300 was $3.51; the average weighted price (that is, the average comic book that retailers ordered) in the Top 300 was $3.50. The average comic book in the top 25 cost $3.55. The median comics price in the Top 300 was $3.50; the most common cover price of comics in the Top 300 was $2.99.

Estimates coming soon. Stay tuned!
