Diamond released their November 2016 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. Also worth noting is Diamond’s Top Ten Books. 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, no Artist Edition style books published in November 2016 made the sales chart.
|N/A||Usagi Yojimbo: The Artist and Other Stories Gallery Edition||N/A|
No Dark Horse Gallery Edition has ever been listed on the Diamond sales charts, because Dark Horse makes them available through all their book channels. Most sales occur through online book sellers such as Amazon.
Let’s encourage publishers to release their sales numbers.
