Star Wars #1 (January 2015)

Once again, Comichron and ICv2 have released their annual joint report on the fiscal state of the comics industry. The good news is that 2015 was one of the best years in awhile; comics sales reached a record modern-era high of $1.03 billion, up 10% over 2014.

“Rebirth,” “Civil War II” tops comics sales for May 2016

DC Universe Rebirth #1

It’s rebooting time again at DC Comics, with “DC Universe: Rebirth” #1 as the top-selling comic for May 2016. A few of DC’s final pre-Rebirth books are also in the top 10.

However, not to be outdone, Marvel’s “Civil War II” #0 came in second place. Also appearing in the top 10 is the now-controversial “Captain America: Steve Rogers” #1 comic.
