UPDATED: JULY '10 TOP 100 Comics, Trades & Market Share

Best Shots Extra: SCOTT PILGRIM V. 6

Updated August 10th with Top 100 Trade Paperbacks (with sales indexes) below:

Updated August 9th with Top 100 Comic Books (with sales indexes) below:

Diamond Comic Distributors released their preliminary July 2010 comic book and trade paperback Top 10 sales charts (sans sales index figures), and publisher Market Share Friday afternoon. 



Marvel Comics' vampire-centric X-Men #1 launch took the top-selling comic book honor for July, with DC's Brightest Day #6 coming in second. DC won the Top 10 battle with Marvel, finishing with 6 titles to Marvel's 4.

And once again proving an upcoming feature film is gold when it comes to trade paperback sales, Bryan Lee O'Malley and Oni Press' Scott Pilgrim's Finest Hour, the sixth and final volume in the series, charted as the best-selling trade paperback/graphic novel of the month. 



Market Share-wise, things look fairly 'regular' in July, with Marvel leading in both categories. Marvel sold 42.69% of all comics and graphic novels sold to Direct Market retailers for the month, with DC accounting for 35.25%. 

Retailers spent 38.66% of all dollars in July on Marvel books, and 32.21% on DC books.

The full Market Share chart, and Top 10 lists follow below. Look for Comichron's analysis of July 2010's sales later this month here on Newsarama.
