DIAMOND'S NOVEMBER SALES RESULTS
GIVE FANS SOMETHING TO 'CHEW' ON

'When Captain America throws his mighty shield, all those who chose to oppose his shield must yield...' After the release of the Diamond comic stats for November, I cant help but think someone is singing that old theme tune in the halls of Marvel at this very moment.

In October DC had narrowed the gap to about 3%, and locked Marvel out of the Top 6. One month later Captain America: Reborn #4 steals third base, and the sales gap opens back up to over 7%.

Despite the other five spots belonging to DC (four of which tie to mega-event Blackest Night), Marvel still managed to emerge as publisher numero uno with 41.93% market share and 37.85% dollar share, compared to the 'Distinguished Competitions' 34.78% unit share and 31.71% cut of dollar share.

THE WINNER ON THE NIGHT: The 'Big Two' aren't the main course on the Top 10 Trade Paperbacks list- their top seller is the first TPB of Chew from Image. For just $9.99 readers looking for something quirky and different, can catch up on the detective who eats at the crime scene (and the odd body) in order to get a few psychic impressions to help himself figure out whodunit, and why.
