Aquaman Outsells Every Marvel Comic in January
If there was anyone still doubting what DC's New 52 could truly accomplish in terms of keeping them in the fight, the January sales might offer some perspective. To kick off the new year, DC Comics beat Marvel in unit share with a 39.86% compared to a 37.51%. However, Marvel still pulled out a victory in dollar share, coming in at 35.17% compared to DC's 33.55%.
However, the big news here is that DC locked in all 10 spots in January's 2012's top 10 best-sellers, including a nice placement of Goeff Johns and Ivan Reis' Aquaman #5 in the 10 slot. That means, yes, an Aquaman book outsold every single book at Marvel.
Here are January's top 10 comics:
1. Justice League #5 (DC)
2. Batman #5 (DC)
3. Action Comics #5 (DC)
4. Detective Comics #5 (DC)
5. Green Lantern #5 (DC)
6. Batman: The Dark Knight #5 (DC)
7. Superman #5 (DC)
8. The Flash #5 (DC)
9. Batman and Robin #5 (DC)
