June 2017 Sales Numbers

Diamond released their June 2017 sales numbers over the weekend and ICv2 has extrapolated those and determined actual unit sales: Top 300 Comics Actual and Top 300 Graphic Novels Actual. Oddly these numbers were delayed one week this month. These numbers are for Diamond’s direct sales in North America only and don’t include Diamond UK or the bookstore market. It’s worth reading the additional information under the sales charts.

For the purposes of the AE Index, where we record initial sales month, two Artist Edition style books were published in June 2017, and both made the sales chart.
