ICv2 has released its estimates for comics sales by Diamond Comic Distributors to direct market comic shops in May 2013. Based on Diamond indexes and publisher data, the numbers provided by ICv2 aren't exact, but they provide a barometer for measuring how print sales of various titles compare to each other. There are a few interesting numbers on this month's list, but one really stood out: The Wake #1, by creators Scott Snyder and Sean Murphy, sold approximately 45,000 copies, making it possibly the best selling Vertigo single issue in over ten years.
Continuing an annual tradition, Top Shelf is set to announce its fall sale of select merchandise through its website. From now until Friday, September 28, the popular indie comics publisher is offering deep discounts on several of its titles, with over 100 titles going for three dollars or less, including collections of work from creators like Alan Moore, Eddie Campbell, James Kochalka and others.
