SALES PITCH: May 2012's Top 6 Comics

While Marvel lead in unit share by just 1.92%, May 2012 according to Diamond Comic Distributors was DC Entertainment's game. Justice League held the top graphic novel spot, Batman: Arkham Asylum toys won their market, and DC nabbed seven spots in the comic sales Top 10. Focus that to the Top 6 and this is what you get;

THE TOP 6 SELLING COMICS OF MAY 2012:
1) AVENGERS vs X-MEN #4 2) AVENGERS vs X-MEN #3 3) BATMAN #9 4) JUSTICE LEAGUE #9 5) BATMAN ANNUAL #1 6) AVX VS #2

MY THOUGHTS: An annual in the Top 6?! Does that show how hot a property the Scott Snyder Batman is right now? It even bet the first issue of Grant Morrison's returning Bat-hit Batman Incorporated at #7!

THE TOP SELLING COMICS OF MAY'S PAST:
In May 2004, The Avengers movie Director Joss Whedon launched one of the seminal runs on the X-franchise ever, with Astonishing X-Men #1. In 2008 Marvel's annual event Secret Invasion took top honours with it's second issue.
