August 2019 comics sales estimates: Absolute Carnage #1, Marvel #1000 both top 200k copies

by John Jackson Miller

As reported here on Friday, Absolute Carnage #1 led new comics sales by Diamond Comic Distributors to retailers in July — and our full estimates, just posted, place its sales at more than 233,000 copies to North America. That puts it ahead of the nearly 207,000 copies of Marvel Comics #1000. Together, they brought the publisher to a 46.15% dollar market share, at least a 22-year high.

Also check out the changes in the Year to Date charts, where both Absolute Carnage and Marvel #1000 made the top five.

Once again with DC's Year of the Villain resulting in many comics having their sales split across multiple entries (standard practice when versions of the same comic book have different cover prices), several comics got additional entries. Using the sorting functionality of our tables, the Comichron chart for August can be sorted in an additional way, to combine those comics into single entries — and we went ahead and threw in Goon, Faithless, Vampirella and other books that had split entries.

It's labor-intensive enough that the practice will probably not be extended beyond DC's event, but we now know what such an effort would involve.
