Siege leads off January 2010 top sellers list

by John Jackson Miller

As a new decade dawned for comics shops, Marvel's Siege #1 was first off the UPS truck — and first in the preliminary rankings released by Diamond Comic Distributors for January orders.

Comics shops ordered more copies of the new Marvel event title in a month that did not see a new Blackest Night issue, breaking DC's string of months topping the list. Check out the complete top-sellers chart; this is, again, Diamond's preliminary release, so more will be coming later.

Marvel led the market shares, with DC in second and Dark Horse in third for both unit and dollar sales.

The Walking Dead Volume 11: Fear The HuntersWalking Dead Vol. 11 topped the trade paperback and graphic novel list.

A final note: we've restored a research forum of sorts to the site. The earliest iteration of the site had a forum where readers could ask questions and post information they'd discovered; that vanished in the database crash of 2008, but we were able to rescue some of the more interesting posts and restore them to the new forum. It's a very no-frills message board — no memberships required — but hopefully it will allow readers to ask and answer on topic we don't get to in our blog.
