Dynamite Third For Per-Capita Marketshare For January 2020, Ablaze Beats IDW

Welcome to Bleeding Cool's Monthly 'Per Capita' List.  The usual comics industry marketshare shows how much share of the overall market a comics publisher has. But the Per Capita list takes that figure and divides it by the number of new titles they publish in that month.

But if you divide the marketshare by the number of individual titles published that month, you get a very different picture. Marvel still tops DC – but nowhere near as much. Dynamite overtakes every other publisher to be third, with Boom beating Dark Horse and IDW to fifth. And Ablaze shows the power of Conan, Charlie Adlard and Mirka Andolfo to beat IDW to seventh place, pushing IDW back to eighth…
