Sales Estimates

Compiled in one place for the first time, I have extracted the sales estimates for all New Warriors-related comic books listed on this site released from September 1996 to present. There are also sporadic sales estimates for books released prior to September 1996. The information was mostly compiled from Diamond Comic Distributor’s monthly Top 300 lists and the The Comics Chronicles sales charts calculated by John Jackson Miller. This page will be updated as new estimates are released.

Numbers previous to January 1995 are based off Marvel’s internal sales records, as posted by Marvel Comics Executive Editor Tom Brevoort to his blog, Blah Blah Blog. As Brevoort notes on his blog, “With most of these books, there were additional sales through the returnable Newsstand distribution network as well, so these aren’t complete figures.” Records released so far: direct sales from April 1984 and direct sales from June 1990.

Numbers for January 1995 to June 1995 include three sets of data: one from estimated sales charts from Diamond Comic Distributors, the second from estimated sales charts from Capital City Distribution or another distributor, and the third combining the two sales estimate figures. Numbers for September 1996 to March 1997 are based off combined pre-orders by North American comic book stores ordering through Diamond Comic Distributors and the Marvel Comics distributor Heroes World. Numbers for April 1997 to January 2003 are based off pre-orders by North American comic book stores ordering through Diamond Comic Distributors. Pre-orders are collected approximately two months in advance of the actual shipping date of a comic and do not include re-orders or cancellations, nor do they factor in late shipping books. Numbers for February 2003 to present are based off final orders by North American comic book stores ordering through Diamond Comic Distributors.

About the below charts: The first number is the ranking of the comic on Diamond’s monthly Top 300 charts in relation to other releases that same month. Next is the comic book title and issue number, followed by the cover price. The final figure is the estimated number of copies sold to North American comic book retailers in that given month. Keep in mind that these numbers are estimates of copies sent to comic book stores. The numbers do not include orders placed after the end of each month, copies purchased by Diamond and kept in inventory, sales outside the direct market through alternate channels like bookstores and newsstands, or orders handled through Diamond UK or other distributors. They also do not take into account the number of copies purchased by readers at each comic book store, but only the number of copies sent from Diamond to North American comic retailers. Finally, each year has an estimated range of the health of the industry or market size overall. This number calculates the year’s total Diamond (and Heroes World, where applicable) sales figures for comic books, trade paperbacks, graphic novels and magazines, plus estimates for newsstand comic book sales and bookstore sales for trade paperbacks, graphic novels and magazines. This figure is included to give the individual issue sales estimates a bit of perspective in relation to the general health of the industry as a whole.

Okay, on with the numbers!

    Thanks for compiling all of this! It’s interesting to see the actual numbers on these titles. I am shocked that they keep putting out the recent Power Pack minis with such low sales. They must be doing really well as digests.

  • Corey  On April 15, 2007 at 9:02 pm

    Yes, as I understand it, the digests sell well enough to support the production of the individual issues of Marc Sumerak’s Power Pack series of mini-series.

    It’s also important to note that the industry’s numbers overall have been going down significantly from the mid-1990s, although there has been an upswing in the last couple years (a trend that hopefully continues).

  • Corey  On April 15, 2007 at 10:00 pm

    I just added the yearly estimates of the size of the comic book market.

  • Jerry  On June 30, 2007 at 6:19 pm

    How many copies did New Warriors Volume 4 #1 sell?

  • Corey  On June 30, 2007 at 6:31 pm

    We should have June’s sales estimates in a few more weeks. Those numbers will include New Warriors volume 4 #1.

  • Liam Gibbs  On July 27, 2007 at 6:04 am

    This stuf is interesting. Any chance of getting the full run of volume 1? Also, is there a place we can get the information for the rest of the comics in any given month? It would be interesting to see how each NW issue stacked up against the top seller, or at least the next one above it.

  • Liam Gibbs  On July 27, 2007 at 6:12 am

    Never mind. Maybe I’ll just click on the link next time. Duh.

  • Corey  On August 8, 2007 at 4:13 pm

    Hi Liam,

    Unfortunately, volume 1 estimates are unavailable. However, yearly statement of ownership records were being published in Marvel comics during volume 1′s run, so a yearly estimate is available, which would prove informative but not as thorough as a month-to-month.
