Spoilers and Latest News for Marvel and DC Fans and TRY to publish a lot of theories, spoilers, and leaks about the movies and stay tuned for Short Gaming news too.

Below you'll find the sales estimates for comics and trade paperbacks sold in the direct market for April, 2019. The sales numbers below are estimates based on the information provided by Diamond Comics Distributors earlier this month. The history of sales estimates can be found on the ComicBookPage.com website.

There are a couple of things to keep in mind when reading this data. These numbers are just estimates for the sales through Diamond to direct market retailers. It does not include any sales outside of the Diamond channel such as newstands, book stores or overseas markets. Since the majority of habitual comic book readers are served through this sales channel, these numbers are a good indicator of the core sales trends at the retail level. While not all copies will sell to readers, each retailer is buying what they think they can sell so the trends at the retail level should be a close enough reflection of the sales trends at the reader level for the purposes of discussion.

The breakdowns are for just the top comics and top trades listed below. These are not the overall market share. I only deal with numbers that I can see and kick around in my ever evolving number crunching system. Sometimes the numbers get a bit battered and bruised in the process.

The estimated total sales for the top 300 comics was 5,838,322 comics which is down by 165,177 units from March and down by 977,087 units from April 2018. Marvel Comics had the largest percentage of the top 300 comics with 55.07% of the total units sold followed by DC Comics with 27.96%.

The top selling comic from Marvel Comics was _War of the Realms (2019)_ #1 in slot 1 with an estimated 187,851 units and for DC Comics was _Batman Who Laughs (2018)_ #4 in rank 3 with an estimated 103,645 units.

The estimated total sales for the top 300 trades was 206,780 trades which is down by 113,045 units from March and down by 111,185 units from April 2018.

Topping the trades list in April was _Magic Order v1_ by Image Comics with 4,743 units.

I'll be back later with an analysis of the numbers below.
