Nothing, however, is selling like Saga, which has continued to experience phenomenal growth. ‘Saga Vol. One was our bestselling comic the entire year,’ says Moss, at the Strand Bookstore in New York. ‘Clearly it’s gaining readers as the series continues.’ As word of mouth grows for the series with no signs of stopping, retailers are reporting that sales on other Image titles also continue to increase. The Image series Sex Criminals, East of West, and Nowhere Men all seem to be doing well for stores across the board. The Image brand alone seems to be enough to warrant taking a chance on a new comics series release. ‘Most people [are] giving nearly all of Image’s first issues at least a flip, if not purchasing them,’ says the Beguiling’s Chris Butcher. W. Dal Bush went so far as to say that, ‘for Challengers, it’s really more of a Big Three: Image, Marvel, DC, in that order. I’d say Image contributes about 25% [to the store’s overall sales].’

Most of the retailers we spoke with also reported that they’re seeing customers shifting their dollars away from lower-tier Marvel and DC books to Image and other publishers. ‘A lot of Marvel and DC titles are really at the bottom end, but Boom!, Image, and IDW have more titles that are more competitive with the top tier Marvel and DC,’ says Carr D’Angelo. ‘We’re still selling a lot of comics because the money pool is the same, but maybe [customers are] taking a look and thinking, I don’t really need this C Level title but gosh, Sex Criminals looks awesome and I’m going to buy that instead.’

I’m relatively new to this comic thing, but this is about how I see things.

Image comics got me in, Marvel is keeping me in and DC comics don’t exist outside of my old trade paperbacks from when I was a kid.

Remember kids, support your local shop.
