Marvel hogs the Top 10

Newsarama today posted Diamond’s Direct Market Sales Charts and Market Share report. Marvel had eight of the top 10 best-selling titles in March, topped by “Captain America” No. 25. (Yep, the issue where Cap is assassinated.)

What I found interesting was the appearance of Dark Horse’s “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” debut issue at the ninth spot on the list. As Newsarama points out, it’s an unusually strong showing for a non-Marvel or DC book. It’s also worth noting that Marvel’s “The Dark Tower: Gunslinger Born” No. 2 was at the fifth spot on the list. That’s two titles with no spandex in sight in the top 10.
