Top 100 Comics of 2014

Via PREVIEWSworld, the list of the top 100 comics sold during 2014.I’m pretty sure the number 1 for 2015 is already decided (Star Wars #1) and it’ll be interesting to see how many of the series shown below make it to next year’s list. The split between the big three publishers isn’t that surprising. As we’ve mentioned before – Marvel blitzed the top 10 for single issues but were trounced by Image in the trade paperback stakes.

Onto the list itself:

I’m not sure if it’s a good or a bad thing, but I only purchased one title (Daredevil #1) out of the Top 100. How about you?

    I purchased 38, with 4 from the top 10, mostly Spider-man and Original Sin. I’m a bit surprised that I bought that many, to be honest. The Avengers and the X-titles have fallen off the radar almost entirely. I stopped collecting The Avengers as there were too many titles, and I couldn’t be bothered keeping up with any of them. Clearly movie success is not translating into comic success.
