How does Diamond calculate the charts? All of it begins on the comedian ebook store.

Knowledge for Diamond’s gross sales charts — which incorporates the month-to-month market shares and all prime product charts — are compiled by Diamond Comedian Distributors from gross sales made to hundreds of comedian ebook specialty outlets situated in North America and around the globe.  Further gross sales made to on-line retailers and different specialty retailers could also be included as properly.

Unit and greenback market shares are calculated based mostly upon orders for comedian books, graphic novels, and magazines invoiced and shipped to Diamond clients throughout any given month, which includes pre-orders, advance reorders, and reorders, minus any copies which are acquired again from a title marked as returnable. Please word that comics marked with an asterisk

have had their reported portions decreased as a result of retailer returnability, and thus might rank decrease on the charts than their precise gross sales would mirror.

The New Titles Rely Chart consists of all titles that have been invoiced by Diamond to retailers for the primary time through the month and isn’t the official solicited title rely for the month. Variant version comedian books and graphic novels on the similar worth level rely as a single SKU. Variant version comedian books, lenticular covers, digital combo packs, and graphic novels at totally different worth factors rely as separate SKUs for every version.
