CE 2009: Books

Alright, here’s a look at the Top Selling Books at Comix Experience in 2009, under the cut.

First off, here is the list sorted by PIECES SOLD (quantity). I’m not going to bother noting where the ties are, or, for that matter, adding the placing numbers, or cleaning up the listings (eg: the “new ptg” that got appended to LOEG — that’s just what we’ve sold, total, over the year, but when a new printing came in to Diamond, that changed their data listing, which, once merged into MOBY, changed MY data listing. Such is life)

This is the Top 100 (well, 107 thanks to ties)

Everything on the Top 100 sold, on average, more than “1 copy a month”.

As noted in the “overview” post, the Batman HC is a fluke because of the Gaiman signing. Therefore, so, too, is WHO KILLED AMANDA PALMER. In the latter’s case, however, had I actually had ENOUGH of those for the signing it could have been in the Top 5. Such is the power of Neil Gaiman!

“Not having enough” is actually a fairly common theme this year — there’s several books here (Crumb’s GENESIS, ASTERIOS POLYP, Darwyn Cooke’s THE HUNTER, etc.) where I would have sold a LOT more copies if the publishers hadn’t sold out of those books. Crumb, in particular, probably would have been in the Top Ten were there any reorders available from ANY of the multiple distributors I use. I ended up even buying copies from Barnes & Noble (dot com) just to have copies for sale during the actual Christmas shopping season.

Overall, I’m pretty happy with the diversity of material on this list.

Now, let’s flip this around and sort this list by DOLLARS sold:
