Comixology: Top Comics of 2010

I still haven’t found a way to find out about sales figures for digital sales- must try harder, I shall add it to me New Years Resolutions!

In the meantime, Comixology have released some stats on their best selling comics. These are the paid, free and on the OS and Web format.

Top 10 paid comics

  1. Wanted #2
  2. Kick-Ass #1
  3. Wanted #3
  4. The Walking Dead Vol. 1: Days Gone Bye
  5. Wanted #4
  6. Wanted #5
  7. Wanted #6
  8. Kick-Ass #2
  9. The Walking Dead Vol. 2: Miles Behind Us
  10. Kick-Ass #3

The power of TV and movies! – Wanted and Kick Ass are both high profile movies, which had lots of publicity. Wanted was one of the first big comics released, while Kick Ass had the power of Marvel behind it! Walking Dead as a comic had a lot of publicity behind it in line with the TV series – no surprises here!

Top Ten Paid Comics (by unique series)

  1. Wanted #2
  2. Kick-Ass #1
  3. The Walking Dead Vol. 1
  4. The Pro
  5. Grimm Fairy Tales Return to Wonderland #2
  6. Chew #2
  7. Civil War #1
  8. Hack/Slash: The Series #1
  9. Sandman #1
  10. Y: The Last Man #1

As Wanted #1 was free, it’s no surprise that #2 was the top selling issue. This list gives us an idea on the popularity of series – Ones that did surprise me were: The Pro, Grimm Fairy Tales Return to Wonderland and Hack/Slash. The rest are pretty high profile series, which should be more familiar to comics fans! Perhaps a reason is that many fans already have paper copies of Sandman & Y: The Last Man?

Top Ten Series

  1. The Walking Dead
  2. Kick-Ass
  3. Wanted
  4. Civil War
  5. Grimm Fairy Tales Return to Wonderland
  6. Hack/Slash: The Series
  7. Chew
  8. Hunter Killer
  9. Witchblade
  10. Sandman

The top three here all have their movie and TV deals which add their strength, whereas Civil War was a very high profile Marvel event, which also has the Mark Millar name attached to it! With regards to Sandman at #10, I would refer to the previous list – many fans and readers have the trades, which are easily available. The rest are all very strong titles which deserve to be their, although I though Chew may be higher!

Top Ten Free Comics

  1. The Walking Dead #1
  2. Wanted #1
  3. Chew #1
  4. The Darkness Vol. 1 #1
  5. Witchblade #1
  6. Hunter Killer #0
  7. Hunter Killer #1
  8. Atomic Robo #1
  9. Hellboy #1
  10. Clash of the Titans: Exclusive Prequel Comic

No real surprises here – free comics are good for one off’s and previews. All of these, with the exception of Clash of the Titans are an #0 or #1 as a free sample. All are strong series and I was pleased that Atomic Robo got some recognition.

I would be interested to see how Box 13 (Comixology’s own) fares against these!
