The top ten sales listings for comic books sold in March are now available, and we see that Brian Michael Bendis and Steve McNiven have put the Guardians of the Galaxy at #1.

Gaurdians of the Galaxy #1 with its 17 variants (or more) covers actually even beat Age of Ultron #1, which came in second.

Below you can see which comics round out the top ten.

DC scored three slots with Marvel taking a total of seven.

We also learn that DC's market shared has dipped to 27% -- almost half what it had in October 2011 with 51%.

Marvel continues to gain as it has 39% of the market share with over 43% of the dollar share.
