CE 2010: Books

Here’s a look at the top selling “Books” for Comix Experience in 2010, under the cut…

First off, here’s the sales charts sorted by PIECES. I’m not doing a lot of cleanup on this, there’s garbagey artifacts of the output process (some books have Diamond order codes appended, and so on) — also ignore all “new Printing” notes, each new printing just overwrites the product description, but I don’t feel like cleaning that all up…

This is the top 100 (well, 108, thanks to ties…)

I’m pretty happy with the diversity of the list, as always, though clearly Bryan Lee O’Malley and Robert Kirkman are the big big winners of this year’s spread.

I’m a retail, so DOLLARS actually kind of matter more to me than QTY does, so here’s a top 100 sorted out by dollars sold — it looks a smidge different…

I’m rather proud of my Top 10, actually (especially considering that GENESIS came out LAST Christmas…) — I also love that the WALKING DEAD COMPENDIUM soars right up to #1, when looking at dollars…that’s what a $60 cover price can do for you! (well, if you’re Kirkman, that probably won’t work for YOU…)

Anyway, I’m always up for your commentary on these lists…

  1. Do you think Asterios Polyp will achieve evergreen status, or is it still being on the list more a case of being on a bunch of 2009 ‘best of’ lists?

  2. For me? Evergreen for sure — it’s a superb book

    -B

  3. Once again, absolutely fascinating. I wish I had something even quasi-worthwhile to add, but sadly, I don’t (like always, I guess)!

  4. Hm, unless I missed something that’s almost a complete shut-out of Marvel in the top 100, except for the creator-owned Icon line, which I gather they don’t see much money from. They never had much luck creating an evergreen title, have they?

  5. Am i missing the Superman: Earth One that was supposed to be such a big seller? Is this the difference in your store’s audience or the book mostly going through alternative markets?
