Top 10 Comic Books For November 2012; Marvel Takes 8 Spots

Body

4525

Marvel NOW! is happening and it's taking a majority of the market share and top spots for November 2012 comic sales.

Diamond released their preliminary sales numbers and we see Bendis' All-New X-Men #1 comes out on top.

Marvel also goes on to score seven more slots in the top 10, with DC Comics only having Batman and Justice League ranking.

Marvel hasn't had this good of a month since before the New 52 DC Comics reboot.

Of course, Marvel's are all new titles and #1's -- and up against DC's #14 issues.

The coming months will be interesting to see what develops at both companies. Will Marvel's titles remain in the top ten? And what about DC? Their sales continue to drop.

For November, DC had a market share of about 30%, down almost 7 percentage points since September.

I wouldn't be surprised if both publishers launched "Vol.2" after two years featuring a whole new batch of #1s.
