Throwback In Comic Books! - June 1996 Comic Book Sales

June 1996 Comic Book Sales Rankings
Rankings of Comics Preordered by North American Comics Shops
as Reported by Diamond Comic Distributors

• Marvel, new Viz items, and Kitchen Sink were not distributed by Diamond in this month.
• Diamond was the only comics-shop distributor for DC, Image, Dark Horse, Acclaim, Crusade, Sirius, Chaos, Archie, London Night, Gemstone, Wizard, and Broadway.
True industry-wide rankings would thus be much different.
