Diamond Sales Top 10 Comics: April 2012

This month Marvel takes the top spot with Avengers vs. X-Men #2. Marvel's other 3 top 10 titles are AvX tie-ins, so it seems that even though the critics may not be in love with Marvel's big event, the comic buying public haven't had enough just yet. Wolverine and the X-Men #9 and New Avengers #24 (both AvX tie-ins) are just outside the top 10 at No. 11 and No. 12 respectively.

DC's highest title is Batman #8 at No. 2, it beats Justice League this week due to the "Night of the Owls" cross-over. DC's books that didn't quite make the top 10 included Superman #8, and The Flash #8 at No. 13 and 14 respectively.

Here's the top 10 best-selling comics of April:

1. Avengers vs. X-Men #2
2. Batman #8
3. Justice League #8
4. AvX VS #1
5. Green Lantern #8
6. Action Comics #8
7. Detective Comics #8
8. Batman: The Dark Knight #8
9. Uncanny X-Men #11
10. Avengers #25

As for the smaller publishers, Dynamite Entertainment had one book in the top 100 - Shadow #1 - which came in at No. 31.
Image Comics' highest book this week was The Walking Dead #96 which came in at No. 47.
Dark Horse's biggest book of the month was Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 9 #8 which made it to No. 74.
Boom! Studios' only book in the top 100 was Fanboys vs Zombies #1 which came in at #80.
Finally, IDW didn't make the top 100! But their highest selling book wasn't too far out - Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #9 had to settle for No. 102.
