Marvel Comics Gets Marketshare Victory In 2011!
Diamond Comic Distributors‘ stats confirm that the publisher claimed a 37% share of dollars spent on comics at distribution level, and 41% of individual comics sold.
Image’s Walking Dead dominated the graphic novel chart, accounting for the top spot and five other places. DC had two entries in the top ten with Batman: Noel and Volume 15 of its Fables series, while Marvel failed to make an impact in the category.
DC claimed the marketshare majority from Marvel in September following the success of its ‘New 52′ initiative. It remained market leader until December, when it was dethroned by its rival.
