Who'd have thought #1s sell well?

July 2018 saw an uptick in overall sales thanks to new number ones and a "wedding" issue. The month was up 14% in dollars over June 2018 and 17% over July 2017. Though year over year to date, the industry is down 2%. As always, all credit to John Jackson Miller.



Overall, Marvel held both top spots in dollar share and unit share with 39% and 41% respectively.



Batman #50 took the top spot in overall units, while there were 6 new #1s in the top 10.



Similar to units, Batman #50 took the top spot in dollars and 6 new #1s were in the top 10. Amazing Spider-Man #1 took the number two spot with a price point of $5.99.



DC's only entry into the top graphic novels by unit was Batman Vol 6: Bride or Burglar. Of note is that Viz Media had two entries in the top ten with One-Punch Man Vol 14 and Dragon Ball Super Vol 3 at spots 6 and 7, respectively.



Marvel took the top spot in overall graphic novel dollars with the release of a $125 hardcover version of Avengers By Jonathan Hickman Vol 2DC had a close third place with a $150 release of Ex Machina: The Complete Series Omnibus hardcover.



For July 2018, Marvel dominated the release charts with 89 comics and 37 graphic novels shipped. DC was in second with far less at 63 comics and 34 graphic novels released.
