Diamond released their 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 September 2016 made the sales chart.
|N/A||Marvel Covers: The Modern Era Artist’s Edition||N/A|
The 300th spot on the chart sold 392 units, and I find it hard to believe Marvel Covers: The Modern Era Artist’s Edition didn’t sell at least that many. This normally moves us to the Top 10 Books list, but because this AE shipped with two covers it’s possible neither made it into the Top 10. All in all a complete lack of accurate sales data.
