Captain America tops comic sales; Oklahoma’s “Thor” is #4
Diamond Comics Distributors, Inc., the primary comic-book distributor to comic-book shops, have announced the best-selling comic books and graphic novels for 2007. Marvel Comics tops both lists, as “Captain America” No. 25 was the best-selling comic book, and “Civil War” was the best selling graphic novel.
Of local interest, “Thor” No. 1, by J. Michael Straczynski, featuring the God of Thunder’s relocation to Oklahoma, was #4 on the list, behind issues #6 and #7 of the Marvel Comics crossover “Civil War.” “Dark Tower Gunslinger Born” No. 1, based on the Stephen King books, was No. 5. DC Comics’ highest-charting book was “Justice League of America” #7, coming in at #13.
The graphic novels were more evenly spread, with DC claiming 4 of the top 10. Marvel had 3, including #2 “Marvel Zombies” and #8 “Road to Civil War.”
DC had “Heroes” at #3, based on the TV series, the evergreen “Watchmen” at #4, Alan Moore’s “League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: The Black Dossier” at #7, and Brian K. Vaughan’s “Y: The Last Man Vol. 9 – Motherland” at #9.
Frank Miller’s “300″ finished the year at #5, and volumes six and seven of “Marvel Zombies” writer Robert Kirkman’s “Walking Dead” series rounded out the top 10 (at Nos. 6 and 10.)
We’ll have more in-depth analysis coming on this.
