Diamond released their early estimates for November with Batman #25 and Harley Quinn #0 taking the two top spots.
It looks as if all the controversy surrounding Harley Quinn #0 paid off for DC as we see it beat out the likes of Marvel's Amazing X-Men #1, and even Forever Evil and Infinity. In addition, the issue featured a contest with a fan's art appearing in the pages.
However, the bigger story looks to be the slight shift in sales from The Big Two to the Indie publishers as both Marvel and DC's retail market share dips under 30%. Image didn't take up the slack, but the likes of the other publishers did - such as Valiant Comics appearing on the chart.
Hopefully the trend continues as Dark Horse, Dynamite, IDW and Valiant are putting out some quality titles.
