NEWS: Top Selling Irish Creators Through Diamond For September

Diamond have released the figures for the top selling 300 comics for September. In a month where the DC line was rebooted it comes as no real surprise that the top selling Irish creator got bumped down the list a little bit. Once more Declan Shalvey was on the top of the pile with Thunderbolts #163.1 coming in at #104. I have included Image Comics Pigs #1 on the list at number 218 as the list includes order for all covers, variant and regular, as Shalvey did the variant cover to the cold war thriller book.
There are three Garth Ennis related books on the list with The Boys # 58, Butcher Baker Candlestickmaker #3 and Garth Ennis’ Jennifer Blood all on the list.
PJ Holden has two appearances on the list with Termionator/Robocop: Kill Human and #2 & 3 beating out MTV and Image Comics Teen Wolf: Bite Me #1 from Stephen Mooney and Farscape #23 from Will Sliney at #290.
Below is a table which breaks down the comics as they appeared on the list. The first column on the left is the position they came in at followed by the index which basically means for every hundred copies sold of that months top selling book is that issues amount sold. i.e. for every 100 copies of Batman #1 sold there were 11.99 copies of Thunderbolts #163.1 sold and so on. The three columns on the right are the price of the book, the publisher and the estimated copies ordered through Diamond Distribution of each issue.
