Comics Sales 2014 – February – Surprise high and low sales report

Comics Sales 2014 – February – Surprise high and low sales report

Market report by comics historian Terry Hoknes – hoknes@hotmail.com of www.HoknesComics.com

SoldOutComics201402

Every month Diamond Distributors reports the top 300 best selling highest ordered new comic books of the month

Retailers order new products 2 months in advance and must predict how well new comics will sell for them.

What happens every month is some titles are over-ordered and some retailers under-order.

As a stereotypical rule most retail shops will order extra heavy on all DC and Marvel titles knowing they might have potentially longer shelf life.  All other smaller publishers most retailers will NOT take the same risk with financially.

Therefore the best selling comics of the year are predictably from the “big 2″ publishers and the smallest print runs and books that sell out the quickest are from the smallest publishers.

Let’s analyze the best selling comics of the past month.  In the following list I will make notes of any comics I believe stand out specifically for having higher or lower orders than might have been expected.  This will strongly affect the future back issue prices of these comics.

Batman holds continuously as the best selling ongoing series but sales have been down and sales this month were so poor in comic shops that only 1 comic sold over 100,000 copies.

Harley Quinn sales stay decently strong and each issue has been selling out and going to 2nd prints.   If popularity stays up the early issues could eventually become valuable for future collectors.

Walking Dead – same as Harley Quinn.  Orders are quite high but issues do sell out and many go to 2nd prints.  If the TV series continues for a few more years these issues are likely to see price increases for future collectors.  Walking Dead has 2 issues in the top 10 – this is a first for the title ever!

2014 is the year that Marvel is restarting all their series with new #1′s.  None of them had crazy high orders and since Marvel only prints whats ordered they all sell out and have 2nd prints immediately.

Some very major series debut with decent but definitely not impressive numbers:  Wolverine, Fantastic Four, Punisher, Ms Marvel.

Ms Marvel had the most hype of the 4 and yet had the smallest order and sold out.  Marvel debuted other titles with even smaller print runs yet so these are the ones to watch out for if the public enjoys them.

Batman Jokers Daughter #1 continued its popularity and decent 51,000 orders.

Most of DC’s issues hit #28 this month and many steampunk variant covers that are all the rage right now. With the regular covers having print runs of only about 35,000 the variants will be a lot less common than the big print books.   Action / Wonder Woman etc.

Looking at the rest of the list with a quick overview I will mention titles that I think the print runs were too high or too low.

If the print runs were too high then those copies are just gonna sit on shelves.

If the print runs were too low it likely sold out immediately at Diamond and in comic shops and has the best chance of all new comics to go up in value quickly.

PRINT RUNS TOO HIGH ?

As usual most Marvel/DC/Dark Horse comics do not sell out and retailers take bigger chances making these books unlikely to ever go up in value.

PRINT RUNS TOO LOW ?

Devils Hopyard #1 – 2,200 from Arrden Entertainment sold out instantly and hit $15.00 already

Black Science #4 came in at a decent 26,000.   This was the best selling Image comic of the month (not counting Walking Dead). Sales have only slightly picked up so its likely going to be another sellout for this issue which keeps going to 2nd prints.

Lazarus and Deadly Class are the only 2 other Image titles that still sell over 20,000 copies.  Image sales overall keep dropping on almost all titles.

Manifest Destiny #4 13,200 – why is the hottest comic on Earth so underordered by retailers !?!?!??!

Revenge #1 17,300 / Fuse #1 15,900 / Undertow #1 14,800 / Apocalypse Al #1 14,000 / Mercenary Sea #1 10,700 / One Hit Wonder #1 9,700

Once again Image comics debuts a bunch of new series this month and the sales keep dropping month to month.   Any quality books are selling out quickly in advance at Diamond and retailers are not taking any chances.

Here are the Image comics that sold less than 5,000 copies this month:

Bounce #10 4,900 / Drumhellar #4 4,500 / Minimum Wage #2 4,100 / Krampus #3 4,000 / Voice In The Dark #4 3,400 / Think Tank #12 2,900 /

Royals Masters Of War #1 – new DC title with great reviews small orders at 12,700.

Cryptozoic Man #4 11,200 – still fairly small orders for the last issue of this popular series

Bunker #1 10,300 – sold out instantly with talks of a new movie – instant price increases.

Steam Wars #4 – a new issue of Star Wars done steampunk style – small print run as usual at only 1,500 copies.

PRINT RUNS – TOSS UP ?

Turok Dinosaur Hunter #1 – many variant covers with print run of 30,000 – still a high number and it did sell out but the variants will have over inflated demand so hard to say the future of this one.

Vampire Diaries #2 – TV show from DC major publisher but print run only 6,000 – either demand is not there any longer or retailers are not taking any chances.

GI Joe Comics – there are a lot of new series released each month but most have print runs only about 5,000 – long run these books could be harder to find.

White Suits #1 – Dark Horse 5,000 – very safe print run

DC Villains Month 3D cover 2nd print complete set – only 2,200 sets at $199.99 were made making these 2nd print 3D covers very rare for a DC product.   Demand could possibly grow for the more popular ones like Jokers Daughter and Harley Quinn.

Manifest Destiny #1 – 3rd printing – print run only 1,800 copies – demand is so high for this title that 3rd print might go up in value.

4 thoughts on “Comics Sales 2014 – February – Surprise high and low sales report

  1. There is something wrong with the table in this article Terry. The data doesn’t line up correctly with the column titles and the last column is cut off.

  2. No prob, always willing to help out the homies at InvestComics. Was also shocked at low print runs for Pariah and Vandroid under 5,000. I read both of these and they were decent with Vandroid the better of the 2 art wise and as a read. Plus Vandroid is based from a movie that was never completed due to a fire, possible re-make / completion down the road?
