June 2019 comics sales estimates: Black Cat #1 tops charts with nearly 256,000 copies

by John Jackson Miller

Our full comics and graphic novel sales estimates for June 2019 are now online — and we see there's a lot of competition for the second-place comic book for the year overall.

In April, War of the Realms #1 became the second-bestselling comic book of the year so far; in May, DCeased #1 did the same thing. Now our analysis of comics sold by Diamond Comic Distributors shows that, in June, Black Cat #1 approached 256,000 copies in sales, giving it the second-place slot for the year. (Still nothing yet to challenge Detective Comics #1000 — though Marvel Comics #1000 is on the way.)

I think I might have figured out why Black Cat sold so many copies. Like the Loot Crate phenomenon a few years back, I found it as the lead copy in Marvel's latest Walmart three-packs.

It depends on where Marvel's jobber sourced the copies from. They'd have needed to have come from Diamond to be counted.
