RAREST COMIC BOOKS of 2009-2012

THE RAREST / SMALLEST PRINT COMICS OF 2009-2012

SALES MARKET REPORT by Terry Hoknes hoknes@hotmail.com

Diamond publishes a list of the 300 best selling comics each month which is where these statistics are compiled from.

If a comic sold very poorly it may not have even made the top 300 list so we are only using data for those comics that did make the chart.

Here are a sample of the Top 10 worst/lowest sales for various comics from the main publishers during the past 4 years.

On one level this just proves these titles are not popular BUT it also will prove in the long run to be the rarest comics to collect as back issues in the future.

DC COMICS – the worlds #2 publisher has released some comics with some very weak sales numbers.  Some are not surprising as there are many titles aimed at young child readers as well as some expensive 100 page giants “DC Comics Presents” and some short lived titles.  This list ranks all 82 comics of the past 4 years that had sales of under 4,000 copies.    This list is in fact not the worst as I do not have sales data for the few kids comics titles that sold so poorly they did not chart.  This would include numerous issues of: Cartoon Network Action Pack, Billy Batson and Mad Magazine.

IMAGE COMICS – the worlds #3 publisher does not sell the numbers that they used to.  They publish a lot of mini-series and one-shots and many titles have very low sales/orders.

This list ranks all 37 comics of the past 4 years that had sales of under 3,000 copies.

This list is in fact not the worst as I do not have sales data for the Image comics that did not even sell enough to rank on a monthly Top 300 chart.

This would include numerous issues of titles such as:  PVP, Sweets, Elephantman etc.

This list is truly a list of rare and forgotten comics as the average comic store in North America did not even order a single copy of any of these !

MARVEL COMICS – the worlds biggest publisher. They usually dominate the best selling comics but due to also publishing more monthly titles than any other company they also find some of their releases lost in the shuffle and ignored at the bottom of the scale.    71 comics made the monthly Top 300 chart that sales of under 4,000 copies.  Many of these are expensive issues or unique one-shots.  A few series made their way numerous times on the list proving to be Marvel’s worst selling titles before being cancelled.

  1. hello there dear sir. great list and always good reading.
    Could you at all recommend any of these to purchase. Also, do you think any of them could be turned it to movies/tv series one day?

    1. Many years in the future I guarantee the DC kids comics are going to have a really good value price increase as collectors will realize how hard it is to put together sets of these.
      I cant really predict comics turning into movie/tv series but sure its possible that it could happen to some titles in the future.
