SALES PITCH: July 2012's Top 6 Comics

Champagne is popping all over the comics industry at the moment, on the back of July sales stats that show sales are drastically up on the same time last year. And why wouldn't they be? Avengers and The Dark Knight Rises have provided the year's ultimate one-two punch, and The Walking Dead has done the same all alone on TV. While DC continued to hold the unit share lead over second placed Marvel by just 1.1%, it was that very Image Comic title that took the months #1 spot. Ladies and gents;

THE TOP 6 SELLING COMICS OF JULY 2012:

1) THE WALKING DEAD #100 2) AVENGERS vs X-MEN #7 3) AVENGERS vs X-MEN #8 4) BATMAN #9 5) JUSTICE LEAGUE #11 6) BEFORE WATCHMEN: OZYMANDIAS #1

MY THOUGHTS: It's about time Walking Dead got this kind of press, sure having nine cover variants helped, but the series not only highlights a publisher making some serious moves at the moment and a crazy cool title, it shows the non-fans out there comics can do more than just capes and mutants.

THE TOP SELLING COMICS OF JUNE'S PAST:

In July 1996, Spawn #52 saw fellow Image star Savage Dragon pop in. Then in July 2004, Micheal Turner and Jeph Loeb's relaunch of Supergirl took DC's best to Apokolips in Superman/Batman #11.

Full July 2012 stats after the jump.
