Here are the 50 best-selling comic books in March 2016 compiled by the comic book distributing monstrosity referred to in terrified, hushed tones as…Diamond Comics. Specifically, and according to Diamond, these are “estimates of the sales on comic books by Diamond U.S. to comic specialty stores during March 2016.”

A few things worth noting-

Batman #50 is the clear winner this month, which probably has to do with Bruce Wayne forgoing all that passivity bullsh*t and reclaiming the ‘Mantle of the Bat!’

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #1? Surprise, surprise.

Star Wars asserts its genre-dominance with at least 5 slots in March. Hmmm. Can one Force-choke a Top 50 list in order to assure one a place upon said list? And if so, can one do it another 4 times??

Walking Dead #152 comes in at #12, and Saga #25 takes the #28 spot. The good stuff is in there, folks. Keep reading!

“About the Diamond Sales Index: The Sales Index of selected monthly Best Seller Charts is presented as a comparative tool for retailers and publishers. It presents Diamond’s monthly sales for individual titles in relation to Diamond’s total sales for the issue of DC Comics’ monthly Batman comic book. (Batman is used as the control title – with a value of 100 – because sales of Batman usually remain relatively stable. This month, as Batman did not ship, Convergence #8 from DC Entertainment was used as the control index.) This allows for easy comparison to other titles and helps retailers gauge their orders for all other titles. This formula is only a guide, other factors may impact a titles’ ability to sell in certain locations and clientele.”
