Mayo Report: 2012-12 Trades

John Mayo from Comic Book Page and CBR and Chris Marshall of the Collected Comics Library podcast discuss the sales estimates for the Top 300 Graphic Novels and Collected Editions for December 2012.

Top 10
Walking Dead, Walking Dead. OK let’s move on. Saga, by Brian K. Vaughn seems to be the breakout book of 2012. I’m sure it will get several Eisner nods later this summer at Comic Con. Overall, as you can see, Image did very well in December.

Rank Title Publisher Price Estimated Sales
1 Walking Dead v1: Days Gone Bye Image Comics $9.99 9,859
2 Walking Dead v2: Miles Behind Us Image Comics $14.99 5,715
3 Chew v6: Space Cakes Image Comics $14.99 5,636
4 Saga v1 Image Comics $9.99 4,749
5 Fatale v2: Devils Business Image Comics $14.99 4,287
6 Walking Dead v3: Safety Behind Bars Image Comics $14.99 4,250
7 Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 9 v2: On Your Own Dark Horse $17.99 3,943
8 Green Lantern (2011) v2: Revenge of the Black Hand DC Comics $24.99 3,649
9 Walking Dead v17: Something to Fear Image Comics $14.99 3,600
10 Daredevil By Mark Waid v2 Marvel Comics $15.99 3,579

DC Comics notables
If you’ve been following this particular monthly post then you’ll notice that I have taken off the DC New 52 section. I felt that since that all the Volume 1’s have been published and that we are halfway through the Volume 2’s there really isn’t anything that special, however, I will list any notable DC book here, in this section from now on.
The New 52 Zero Omnibus came out in December and for the hardcore collector out there, it sold pretty much as expected. Kamandi, on the other hand, sold very well. I hope that the entire line of Kamandi comics will be collected in this format – and not just the Jack Kirby run.

Rank Title Price Estimated Sales
67 Kamandi Last Boy On Earth Omnibus v2 $49.99 1,321
158 DC Comics the New 52 Zero Omnibus $150.00 663

Marvel notables
It’s pretty much Jason Aaron’s month. Hulk and Wolverine sold well. Perhaps Aaron could do a full blown crossover someday.

Rank Title Price Estimated Sales
45 Deadpool Dead $39.99 1,675
58 Wolverine and X Men By Jason Aaron v4 Premiere HC $19.99 1,422
96 Incredible Hulk By Jason Aaron v2 HC $34.99 1,063
83 Marvel Masterworks Golden Age Captain America v6 HC $74.99 1,170
121 Essential X Factor v5 $19.99 867

Other notables
So many other great books shipped in December, I’m sure many fanboys had a Merry Christmas. Valiant and its’ properties have been selling well on the monthly side and as you can see here, there is also a collected edition audience. If you missed the Fear Agent (Omnibus) hardcover, you may have trouble finding it. It was under ordered and is already going on a third (and perhaps final) printing. If you are unfamiliar with Anomaly, as I was, John gives us the rundown on this very interesting book.

Rank Title Publisher Price Estimated Sales
27 X-O Manowar (2012) v1: By the Sword TP Valiant $9.99 2,113
71 Judge Dredd Complete Brian Bolland HC IDW $49.99 1,273
110 Walking Dead Omnibus v4 HC Image $100.00 963
126 Fear Agent v1 HC Dark Horse $49.99 839
127 Tarzan Russ Manning Years v1 HC Dark Horse $49.99 835
139 Weird Horrors and Daring Adventures Joe Kubert Archives v1 HC Fantagraphics $39.99 759
151 Star Trek Newspaper Strips v1 HC IDW $49.99 701
225 Anomaly Anomaly $75.00 437
252 Walking Dead Omnibus v4: S/N Limited Ed HC Image $150.00 400

November 2012 Collected Edition Sale Estimates

2012-11-TradesJohn Mayo from Comic Book Page and CBR and Chris Marshall of the Collected Comics Library podcast discuss the sales estimates for the Top 300 Graphic Novels and Collected Editions for November 2012.

Top 10
As you can see the latest Walking Dead trade paperback blew everyone else out of the water. Avengers vs. X-Men placed higher then I thought considering the $75 price tag. I’m sure this will turn into an evergreen book, much like Civil War has.

Rank Title Publisher Price Estimated Sales
1 Walking Dead v17: Something to Fear TP Image Comics $14.99 26,091
2 Fables Werewolves of the Heartland HC DC Comics $22.99 8,738
3 Adventure Time v1 TP Boom! Studios $14.99 7,273
4 Fairest v1: Wide Awake TP DC Comics $14.99 6,083
5 Girl With the Dragon Tattoo v1 TP DC Comics $19.99 5,809
6 Avengers vs X Men HC Marvel Comics $75.00 5,337
7 Boys v12: Bloody Doors Off TP Dynamite Entertainment $19.99 5,322
8 Walking Dead v1: Days Gone Bye TP Image Comics $9.99 5,168
9 Scalped v10: Trails End TP DC Comics $14.99 3,917
10 Red Hood and the Outlaws (2011) v1: Redemption TP DC Comics $14.99 3,762

Rest of the New 52
The trade paperbacks listed here did not sell well and John and I talk a lot about his appointment of the Deadman book.

Rank Title Price Estimated Sales
12 Flash (2011) v1: Move Forward HC $24.99 3,634
14 Superman (2011) v1: What Price Tomorrow HC $22.99 3,320
40 Blue Beetle (2011) v1: Metamorphosis TP $14.99 1,816
51 DC Universe Presents (2011) v1: Deadman Challengers TP $16.99 1,537
66 Captain Atom (2011) v1: Evolution TP $14.99 1,406
83 Blackhawks (2011) v1: The Great Leap Forward TP $16.99 1,211

Other DC Comics notables
The Sandman Slipcase set and the 52 Omnibus were the two most expensive things listed this month. These are such specialty items and sold as well as they could. I talk a bit about the MAD Archives Volume 4 and just how it took DC 10 years to get all four volumes published.

Rank Title Price Estimated Sales
36 Batman Judge Dredd Collection HC $29.99 2,014
78 DC Comics the Sequential Art of Amanda Conner HC $29.99 1,290
109 Annotated Sandman v2 HC $49.99 1,041
121 Wonder Woman Archives v7 HC $59.99 916
150 Sandman Slipcase TP Set $199.99 764
178 52 Omnibus HC $150.00 610
212 Mad Archives v4 HC $59.99 484

Other Marvel notables
I’m currently read all the FF Masterworks for the first time ever. So far I’m through Volume 3 and I’m loving every panel of it.  I’ve never read Ultimate Spidey, perhaps someday I will. Both of these books placed pretty much where all Masterworks and Omnibus’ do.

Rank Title Price Estimated Sales
74 Marvel Masterworks Fantastic Four v14 $69.99 1,333
161 Ultimate Comics Spider Man Omnibus HC $75.00 698

Other notables
Doh! Silver Streak did not sell that many copies. I have to wonder if Dark Horse will do a Volume 3.

Rank Title Publisher Price Estimated Sales
39 Walt Disney Donald Duck v2: Xmas Shacktown HC Fantagraphics Books $28.99 1,855
44 BPRD Plague of Frogs v4 HC Dark Horse $34.99 1,646
