So with 2015 closing, Diamond released their final tally for most popular comic books and it looks like there are quite a few surprises here! Apparently, Marvel dominates the field while indie darlings Image and IDW have also made a strong showing! Poor DC…at least they have Batman, right? Diamond is the end-all distributor for all things comic-booky and this list should be somewhat definitive. At least we can extrapolate one thing from this list…we should all be reading Saga! I’m almost pretty surprised at the amount of Star Wars goodies up there but then again, we’ve all hit a fever pitch waiting for The Force Awakens!
