Diamond Comic Distributors announced that Brightest Day #7 from DC was the top-selling comic book in North America in August, based on orders from comics shops. And in the second spot? Brightest Day #8 — marking the first time this year that both issues of the two-a-month limited series have taken the top spots. Click to see the Top 10 Comics and Trade Paperbacks for August 2010, along with market shares.

Scott Pilgrim Volume 6: Scott Pilgrim's Finest HourThere weren't many big debuts this month, with the top-ranking first issue landing in tenth place, Green Lantern Emerald Warriors #1. Likewise, the trade paperback chart was topped by a familiar title: Scott Pilgrim's Finest Hour, repeating its performance from July.

Last August the charts were topped by Blackest Night #2 among other heavy-hitter comics, so the comparatives will be strong — but it will be a four-week month versus a four-week month, so at least the calendar won't be muddying the water this time out.

Diamond's full charts are expected soon. Stay tuned!

Woah.... X-Men drops from 140,000 to below Batman sales?

Thats near 50% attrition isn't it?

We won't know for sure until we see the estimates. But it's worth noting that X-Men Vol. 2, #1 from 1991 saw an astounding 82% attrition from its first issue, dropping from the all-time record 8.19 million copies to 1.47 million copies for the second issue.
