These sales represent only those sales reported through Diamond-North America accounts. They do not include sales through book stores, foreign sales, book clubs, or to most libraries.

Note that for those trades with no listed sales in August (Batman BeyondBlue BeetleNew Super-Man, etc.) that just means that they didn't make the Top 300 in collection sales for the month; they may have had sales that were below the Top 300 threshold (408).
