ComiXology Bestseller List, 14th June 2019 – Event Leviathan #1 Tops The Chart

Matthew Snyder has no time for this Graphite Comics nonsense. He's all in for the ComiXology numbers, checking in every week to see which of the comics are topping the charts this week… that people actually have to pay for as well.

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.

This week, a prominent member of the comic industry shocked everyone by predicting the collapse of DC Comics. 85 years of comic innovation gone, just like that.

And to my readers, I must apologize. I have failed you. I should've seen this coming in my position of digital sales tracker, but I didn't. I must tender my resignation immediately and hope for your forgiveness.

But what will happen to all of DC's heroes? I suppose Superman will rent out the Fortress of Solitude for corporate events. Wonder Woman will sell Wonder Knives on late night tv. Batman will… well he's a billionaire, he'll be fine. But Aquaman will have to take that offer and become the spokesman of Long John Silver's. (Are they still even in business?)

I shudder to even look at the Top 10 score this week. Surely DC was demolished in a bloodbath…..

  • DC: 41
  • Marvel: 14

Oh. Never mind then. Rich, feel free to ignore that resignation.

ComiXology Bestseller List, 14th June 2019 - Event Leviathan #1 Tops ChartSo DC is on top again, although with which book may be a bit of a surprise. The Superman Event Leviathan Special barely cracked the Top 10 two weeks ago. but Event Leviathan has debuted at No. 1, edging out The Batman Who Laughs for the top spot. It's another victory for Brian Michael Bendis, whose decision to come to DC looks better each week. Even Supergirl got a nice boost thanks a crossover with Bendis's current Superman arc.

But I'm not going to give DC a completely healthy diagnosis just yet. While DC still dominates at the top, some of their once promising books have fallen hard recently. In just one month, Hawkman fell 9 spots in the New Issue Rankings. And Wonder Twins and Catwoman are both at all time lows, landing at No. 28 and No. 30. Batman and Superman may carry this company, but DC needs to rebuild a healthy stable of mid-tier titles.

I wonder what Animal Man is up to these days?
