Commentary:
  • The Dilbert desk calendar stays at the top of the chart this week, but has dropped to #260 on the overall Amazon books chart. Other calendars are starting drift down or off the chart, except for the Little Moments of Love 2019 Wall Calendar, which makes a surprise debut in the #2 position this week.
  • The other debuts this week are pre-orders for Hilo Book 5 and the Mister Miracle collection; and the massive Tokyo Ghoul Complete Box Set.
  • The University Effect goes into full gear this week, with PersepolisMausFun HomeUnderstanding ComicsWatchmen & American Born Chinese all making double digit gains.
  • This week saw a selection of twenty-or-so books from DC debuting on Kindle Unlimited for the first time, and they all instantly swarmed up on the chart. This helps to reinforce our belief in the correctness of removing KU titles from the sales chart, as while they may represent reads, they don't involve actual sales.
  • Technical note: While this post is going live on Saturday morning, the sales data was actually collected on Friday morning as per usual, and the post-dating reflects that reality.

DC Comics Month-to-Month Sales: November 2018 - Beware My Power

The Green Lantern #1
Greetings, sales charts fans! It's time once again to look at DC's sales figures. 

Sorry, this column is running quite late. So let’s just get on with things, shall we?


Warning: The commentary below may contain reasoned analysis, speculation (unfounded and otherwise), opinion, and/or snark. Those looking for a more straightforward analysis are directed to John Jackson Miller's excellent Comichron analysis, posted earlier this month over at Comichron!

Please consider the fine print at the end of the column, as it explains several things about how these charts are compiled. 

(Note that the percentage comparisons are done with total orders including reorder activity.)

DC have not done well by the Green Lantern franchise as of late, insisting that it was capable of supporting two twice-monthly books in the Rebirth era, and four monthly books during the New 52 era. While that may have been possible back when Geoff Johns was heading the franchise, it hasn’t been the case for a while. So this month they’ve finally come to their senses, replacing the two twice-monthly books with a single monthly title by a Grant Morrison & Liam Sharpe. And while’s highly unlikely that The Green Lantern will stick around above 100K going forward, if this can settle into the 70-80K range that would be a win for DC.

Last month I speculated that we’d see re-orders for #57 show up on this month’s chart, but I was wrong. It appears that the mid-90s is the new normal for Batman

8 - HEROES IN CRISIS ($3.99)
09/2018: Heroes in Crisis #1 of 9 -- 140,699           [149,305]
10/2018: Heroes in Crisis #2 of 9 --  88,547 (- 39.8%)  [93,151]
11/2018: Heroes in Crisis #3 of 9 --  83,794 (- 10.0%)

Actually not a bad drop-off for the third issue, and there were reorders for the first two issues as well. So there’s apparently some audience for a grimdark crossover in the Rebirthed DCU, though not as much as for the gonzo-crazy DCU crossover of Metal. The fact is that gonzo-crazy is baked into the DNA of the DCU, while (outside of Batman) it’s harder to graft-on the grim dark, especially with characters like Superman and Wonder Woman (and Booster Gold, and Harley Quinn...)

Bends may be delivering the kind of Superman that I personally want to see in the comics, but so far that’s not translating to broad sales appeal. At this point it’s a question of whether Superman will level out above the low-40K where the previous series ended.

Back to normal. Still looking for its level, but frankly as long as that level is above 30K it’ll be a historically good place for a Catwoman solo series.

26 - DROWNED EARTH ($4.99)
10/2018: JL/Aquaman Drowned Earth #1 -- 53,820           [55,983]
11/2018: Aquaman/JL Drowned Earth #1 -- 49,911 (- 10.8%)

The conclusion of the “Drowned Earth” crossover does fairly well compared to the opening. But as this was much more of a Justice League story than an Aquaman story, one might have suspected the sales to be closer to the JL level, but that may not have been clear to retailers who were ordering and basically decided to split the difference.

Hands-down the storyline in Action is the best an ongoing Superman comic has been in quite some time (IMO); it’s too bad that the sales don’t reflect that.

G. Willow Wilson & Cary Nord come on board, and Wonder Woman continues to sell where Wonder Women comics tend to sell. Might do better in trades though, as that’s where Wilson tends to have her audience.

Steady on for the final issue. Despite a few delays, sales on Mister Miracle stayed remarkably consistent, and a rare milted seres whose final issue sold more that the first-month sales of its initial issue. Not smash hit, but a solid performer that should also do well in trade.

-----------------
6 months: - 34.0%

The top-selling “New Age of Heroes” title, and likely to be the only one left standing in a few months.

Hmm, hanging on to a bit of its boost from last month.

120 - THE BOOKS OF MAGIC (Vertigo) ($3.99)
10/2018: Books of Magic #1  -- 32,284 (+197.1%)
11/2018: Books of Magic #2  -- 18,189 (- 45.0%)

No variant for the second issue, so that’s a typical percentage drop in such a case.

---

Coming in at #122 is the DC Nuclear Winter Special #1, the latest in DC’s $9.99 80-page short story anthologies, with 17,253 in sales. While the high price somewhat limits the sales appeal, it does mean that the book is #39 on the dollar rankings for November.

---
123 - SUICIDE SQUAD BLACK FILES ($4.99)
11/2018: SS Black Files #1 of 6 -- 16,953

DC’s latest attempt at a Suicide Squad anthology does about as well as would be expected (especially considering there does not appear to have been a variant cover for this first issue). I smell inventory burn-off...

---

124 - LUCIFER (Vertigo) ($3.99)
11/2003: Lucifer #44 -- 13,517 
11/2016: Lucifer #12 --  8,133 
------------------------------
10/2018: Lucifer #1  -- 28,216 (+340.4%)
11/2018: Lucifer #2  -- 16,871 (- 40.2%)
-----------------
2 years : +107.4%
15 years: + 24.8%

The second-best sales figure for a Lucifer comic in at least fifteen years (just under the debut issue of the previous Lucifer series).

---
128 - ELECTRIC WARRIORS ($3.99)
11/2018: Electric Warriors #1 of 6 -- 16,152

Mini-series set in the future of the DCU does pretty much as you would expect. And that is with a variant cover...

---
132 - PLASTIC MAN ($3.99)
06/2018: Plastic Man #1 of 6 -- 31,997
07/2018: Plastic Man #2 of 6 -- 20,632 (- 35.5%)
08/2018: Plastic Man #3 of 6 -- 19,596 (-  5.0%)
09/2018: Plastic Man #4 of 6 -- 17,548 (- 10.5%)
10/2018: Plastic Man #5 of 6 -- 16,495 (-  6.0%)
11/2018: Plastic Man #6 of 6 -- 15,341 (-  7.0%)

134 - HOUSE OF WHISPERS (Vertigo) ($3.99)
09/2018: House of Whispers #1  -- 28,346
10/2018: House of Whispers #2  -- 16,763 (- 40.9%)
11/2018: House of Whispers #3  -- 14,943 (- 10.9%)

A typical third issue drop. Of course, these Sandman Universe titles are really designed to sell trade collections in the bookstore market, so their single issue sales are largely immaterial. Still, they’re doing a darn sight better than any other Vertigo comic of late, so that has to be reassuring. 

---
141 - AMERICAN CARNAGE (Vertigo) ($3.99)
11/2018: American Carnage #1  -- 12,891 

This month’s Vertigo debut, comes in lower than the previous two (Hex Wives and Border Town).

193 - THE UNITED STATES VS. MURDER, INC. (Jinxworld) ($3.99)

09/2018: US vs Murder #1 of 6 -- 18,530 (+123.7%)
10/2018: US vs Murder #2 of 6 --  9,750 (- 47.4%)
11/2018: US vs Murder #3 of 6 --  8,049 (- 17.4%)

Were the Superman books selling like gangbusters, then the sales on these JInxworld titles would be immaterial. But as it stands, DC may be a bit more trepidatious about running four concurrent JW books in the future.

148 - SIDEWAYS ANNUAL ($4.99)

11/2018: Sideways #10 -- 11,629 (- 32.8%)  
-----------------
6 months: - 36.5%

The Annual actually sells a handful of copies more than the main title. It’s all immaterial though, as the series ends with issue #13 in February.

-----------------
1 year  : - 15.8%
2 years : - 22.6%
5 years : - 56.3%

The end of the Injustice saga, selling nearly the same as the final issue of the regular series. It went out with a bit of a whimper, sales-wise, but in all it ran for six full years, once- or twice- monthly (123 issues total!), which is kind of amazing for a video game tie-in. And for a while it was the best-selling digital comic.

The movie made $29.8M domestically and $52M world-wide. And yet the comic sells fewer than 9,000 copies.

The Fine Print (Disclaimers, et cetera)


The numbers above are estimates for comic-book sales in the North American direct market, as calculated by ICv2.com and Comichron, according to the chart and index information provided by Diamond Comic Distributors.

ICv2.com's and Comichron’s estimates are somewhat lower than the actual numbers, but they are consistent from month to month, so the trends they show are fairly accurate. Since it's a "month-to-month" column, the comments, unless otherwise noted, are on the most recent month.

Bear in mind that the figures measure sales of physical comics to retailers, not customers. Also, these numbers do not include many sales to bookstores, newsstands, libraries, other mass-market retail chains, or the United Kingdom. Re-orders are included, so long as they either reached stores in a book's initial calendar month of release or were strong enough to make the chart again in a subsequent month; or they show up in the year-end Top 1000. Keep in mind that sales for some titles may include incentives to acquire variants and not every unit sold is necessarily even intended to be sold to a customer.

If additional copies of an issue did appear on the chart after a book's initial calendar month of release, you can see the total number of copies sold in brackets behind those issues (e.g. "[36,599]"). Likewise, any lower numbers due to returns or other factors returns will also be reflected in the brackets. Should more than one issue have shipped in a month which is relevant for one of the long-term comparisons, the average between them will be used. Titles which are returnable have their numbers artificially adjusted down by Diamond. To make up for that this column increases the reported numbers for those titles by 10%. Which is likely also wrong, but it's a different and likely less wrong kind of wrong, and experience has shown that this leads to sales figures which are more consistent. 

Titles released under the All-Ages line and magazines, such as Mad, mostly sell through channels other than the direct market, so direct-market sales don't tell us much about their performance. Likewise, Digital First comics are published online before print, and may do a significant amount of their sales in that arena. For most Vertigo titles, collection sales tend to be a significant factor, so the numbers for those books should be taken with a grain of salt as well. 

Please keep in mind that raw sales numbers do not tell us about how profitable a book is for a publisher or for the creators.

Above all, do not allow sales numbers to dictate your purchasing and enjoyment of a particular comic. If you enjoy reading a comic series then go right on buying and reading that comic, no matter what the sales figures say.

** Two asterisks after a given month in the average charts mean that one or more periodical release did not make the Top 300 chart in that month. In those cases, it's assumed that said releases sold as many units as the No. 300 comic on the chart for that month for the purposes of the chart, although its actual sales are likely to be less than that.
