September 2019 comics sales estimates: Spawn #300 tops 262k copies, House of X #1 reorders take it above 200k

by John Jackson Miller

The record-setting Spawn #300 led September's sales charts, as we noted on Friday, and we can now report our estimate that it sold nearly 262,300 copies into the North American comic shop market. Priced at $7.99, that puts the dollar value of the comics' orders well over $2 million — which, coincidentally, is close to what the dollar take for Spawn #1 was in May 1992. (Of course, that issue cost $1.95, and the values haven't been adjusted for inflation.) Still, it was a significant sale, enough to make it the bestselling issue of the comic in the Diamond Exclusive Era.

Spawn's performance was enough to make it the #2 comic book so far in 2019, supplanting Black Cat #1. But the interesting movement in the year-to-date charts was below the Top Five for the year. House of X #1 launched in July with more than 185,000 copies shipped; its second printing in August had an order deadline set before any copies of the first issue shipped, and it consequently didn't add much. Not so in September, as its reprints added more than 15,000 copies, bringing the title over the 200,000-copy mark.

Once again, many DC titles saw their orders bifurcated between cardstock and regular versions in the charts; we included a feature in the monthly chart allowing the issues to be sorted as single entries if desired.
