Diamond Top 300 lists for August: Prices steady

Diamond Comic Distributors rolled out the full charts for sales of its Top 300 Comic Books and Trade Paperbacks to retailers today; it will be a while before I have the analysis with sales estimates online, but you can see the full charts now, along with the order index numbers. Full market shares also appear; click the image at right to see the dollar shares more clearly.

A few items of note at this stage: Sales levels look at a glance to be relatively similar to last month's, but we'll have to look more closely. Cover prices for comics in the Top 300 didn't move much — the average title offered cost $3.45, with the average comic book ordered priced at $3.44. The median price for new comics offered remained at $2.99, and that was also the most common price for new comics.

The trade paperback and graphic novels list was led by the tenth Walking Dead volume and included releases from Boom and Avatar in third and sixth places (Irredeemable Vol. 1 and Franekstein's Womb respectively). Both those products are under the $10 mark, but it does appear this was the highest placement for Boom in the trade tables to date. Avatar posted an Alan Moore paperback in fourth in March.

Full sales estimates coming soon...
