Diamond PREVIEWSWorld announces Top 50 Comics for June 2013

SupesU1 Bat-Supes1

Not surprising to me that the DC #1s with Superman by Jim Lee and the combo of Batman/Superman came in at the #1 & 2 slots.  I’ll be more surprised if they hold at this level of sales.

I am a bit surprised that Dan Slott’s “Doc Ock as Spider-Man” series Superior Spider-Man is doing so good in sales, holding the #7 & 8 sales “Slotts”, while not my cup of tea, I’m glad that Marvel has a good handle on what their main audience wants & slott is providing that.

I’m mystified by Kick-Ass 3 #1 being at sales slot #10.  That series got old for me a while ago, and was a rare case (for me) where I actually like the movie BETTER than the comic it was based on.

And Bravo to Robert Kirkman for holding onto a spot in the Top 20 with Walking Dead #111 at #13.  Image had 2 more spots in the top 50 (#33 & 34) with Mark Millar/Frank Quitely’s Jupiter’s Legacy #2 and Greg Rucka/Michael Lark’s Lazarus #1.  Dark Horse also held 2 spots (#45 & 46) with Brian Wood’s excellent Star Wars #6 and The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys #1.

It’s nice to see some indie books sneaking into the Top 50 and breaking the stranglehold of the “big 2” a bit.
