Diamond Comics Distributors has released their Top Products for June 2014. As in previous months, Marvel has retained their lead on both Unit and Market Share as Top Publisher, with DC Comics coming in a close second.

Batman #32 was the Top Comic Issue.


After analysis it was determined that the rises and declines offset each other. So in effect, the overall June 2014 comic book and graphic novel sales were nearly  the same as one year ago for the same month.

 

Other notable Top Products:

- The DC Bombshells: Black Canary Statue was the Best-Selling Toy.
- Hasbro's Risk: Legacy was the Best-Selling Game.
- Archie Comics' smash hit, Afterlife with Archie Volume 1: Escape from Riverdale was the Best-Selling Graphic Novel.



While the overly excessive analyses are still being calculated, the preliminary stats and graphs can be found below for your viewing pleasure !
