Periodicals Up 7%, Graphic Novels Flat
Posted by ICv2 on January 17, 2006 @ 11:00 pm CT
July sales of comics and graphic novels to comic stores were up 6% in dollars over the year-ago period. Comic format sales were up 7%, with the red-hot sales of All Star Batman and Robin the Boy Wonder #1 certainly contributing substantially to that growth, along with House of M and its related titles. July broke a six month string of double digit graphic novel growth; sales were flat vs. the year ago period.
