Top 10 Single Issue comics and Graphic Novels for 2014

Thanks to Kelly H. for this one.
Diamond Comics Distributors has put out their numbers for the top 10 selling single issue comics and top 10 graphic novels for 2014. It is an interesting list.
For single issue comics we have:
1 AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #1
2 WALKING DEAD #132
3 ROCKET RACCOON #1
4 DEATH OF WOLVERINE #1
5 DEATH OF WOLVERINE #4
6 THOR #1
7 ORIGINAL SIN #1
8 DEATH OF WOLVERINE #2
9 DEATH OF WOLVERINE #3
10 SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN #31
Marvel clearly dominates the sales for the year with 9 of 10 of the best selling comics for the year. The sole stand out non-Marvel book is The WALKING DEAD #132 which was helped out by the Lootcrate Variant selling over 300,000 copies.
But for graphic novels we see something a little different:
1 SAGA TP VOL 03
2 SAGA TP VOL 01
3 WALKING DEAD TP VOL 20 ALL OUT WAR PT 1
4 SAGA TP VOL 02
5 WALKING DEAD TP VOL 01 DAYS GONE BYE
6 WALKING DEAD TP VOL 21 ALL OUT WAR PT 2
7 SEX CRIMINALS TP VOL 01
8 WALKING DEAD TP VOL 22 A NEW BEGINNING
9 BATMAN TP VOL 01 THE COURT OF OWLS
10 SAGA TP VOL 04
Image takes 9 of the top 10 slots, with the sole non-Image book being a DC book, Scott Snyders Court of Owls Batman TPB.
Looks like Image carries the trade-waiting and non-traditional comic reader crowd.

    1. This is another reason I read my Marvel titles by redeeming the digital code to read on my tablet or online.. no ads when reading! 🙂
