ComiXology Bestseller List, 28th June 2019 – War Is Over

Once again, Matthew Snyder braves the digital divide to bring us the best of what's selling on tablets and phones worldwide… Welcome to the ComiXology Bestseller list, your guide to see how well your favorite titles are selling digitally. Every week I'll post the ranking of every new title, plus a ranking of the best selling volumes & graphic novels. As always, I hope you find it interesting and informative.

Now THAT is how to stick a landing.

When War of the Realms first started, I asked everyone if they were feeling the same sense of excitement as previous Marvel events. The voters overwhelmingly voted Nay (74%) over Yay (26%). That may have been a bit of an overreaction for a title that debuted at No. 3, but Marvel events usually come with very high expectations.

Well WOTR has finally lived up to those expectations. The final issue has landed at No. 1, only the second Marvel title to win the crown since Fantastic Four #1 in August. But was it enough to beat DC in the Top 10 battle?

The last several months have followed a predictable pattern: DC easily wins Weeks 1, 2 & 4 every month, while Marvel barely squeaks by in Week 3. Can Marvel break the pattern? It'll be tough. Heroes in Crisis may have wrapped up, but the final issue of Batman: Damned released this week, not to mention the usual lineup lead by Action and Detective Comics. This will be close one. Let's look at the score:

  • Marvel: 29
  • DC: 26

Have some ale and lift the hammer, Marvel. You are worthy.

And the first sip of ale should go to Jason Aaron, who is this week's MVP with three titles in the Top 10: War of the Realms, Avengers and Thor. Now might be a good time to ask C.B. for a raise.

But as a comic fan, I must say love competitive weeks like this. DC and Marvel both brought their A-game, and the Top 10 came down to the wire. The industry is better when we have weeks like this, because competition fuels creativity.
