DC Comics Celebrate Their Top Sellers Of 2019: Detective Comics #1000, Watchmen TPB And DCeased #1

Seems DC Comics has a lot to celebrate about 2019 as they announce that not only did they put out the best selling comic of the year, with Detective Comics #1000 (and my personal pick for Best Single Issue of the Year), but they’re surprise summer hit, DCeased saw the debut issue from Tom Taylor, Trevor Hairsine, James Harren, and Stefano Gaudiano, come in at #5. All based on figures reales by Diamond Comic Distributors (DCD).

Interestingly, the collected Watchmen tpb made its way back up to the number one best seller after not even featuring in 2018’s list. Seems the HBO sequel series really worked its magic on sales for this trade. What with Watchmen sales slipping ever since the film came out, God forbid DC Comics ever stop reprinting it and have the rights revert back to creators Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons, right?
