How does Diamond calculate the charts? It all starts at the comic book shop.

 Data for Diamond’s sales charts – which include the monthly market
shares and all top product charts – are compiled by Diamond Comic
Distributors from a universe of over 4,000+ accounts, comprised of
comic book specialty shops and other merchant stores and buyers. The
shops are primarily located in North America, with a percentage of
sales also to international stores and buyers located throughout the
world. The account base includes not only brick-and-mortar comic book
specialty shops, but also Internet stores, chain stores, and other
specialty stores.

 Unit and Retail Dollar sales are calculated based upon orders
invoiced and shipped to Diamond accounts during any given month, which
comprises initial pre-orders, advance reorders, and reorders, minus any
copies that are received back from a title marked as returnable.
