DC Comics The New 52 continued to dominate the comic sales charts in November 2011! For sales through Diamond Comic Distributors, DC Comics held the top four sales spots, and 13 of the top 20 spots. Admittedly, the comics market is beginning to stabilize after the previous two white-hot months with DC Comics far in the lead.
Not surprisingly, we’re going to focus on The Fury of Firestorm: The Nuclear Men #3. In November our favorite Nuclear Men occupied the 78th sales spot with 28,489 units sold. Of DC’s The New 52 issues, Fury of Firestorm #3 landed as the 38th book in units sold.
In September, Fury of Firestorm #1 (first printing) occupied the 46th sales spot with 46,383 units sold. Of DC’s The New 52 issues, Fury of Firestorm #1 landed as the 30th book in units sold. The second printing of Fury of Firestorm #1 sold an additional 10,539 copies, for a grand total of 56,922.
In October, Fury of Firestorm #2 occupied the 54th sales spot with 39,591 units sold. Of DC’s The New 52 issues, Fury of Firestorm #2 landed as the 34th book in units sold.
While numbers have certainly slipped since September, Fury of Firestorm #3 still out-performed lots of other successful books such as: Punisher, Hulk, X-Factor, Avengers Academy, Thunderbolts, and many more. Also, just think how good these rankings would look if they included the digital sales! Overall, I still think Fury of Firestorm is performing well. Below you’ll find the top 100 selling comics in October from The Comic Chronicles.
