In April, Manage Comics added three new shops and just over 200 new customers who are using the system. Things are fairly predictable, although with perennial top 5 player Dark Nights ending, we saw a shuffling at the top.

The first number is the ranking of the title, while the second is its previous rank.

1 (1) – Doomsday Clock
2 (2) – Batman
3 (4) – Amazing Spider-Man
4 (5) – Flash
5 (8) – Detective Comics

With Dark Nights Metal finishing, Amazing Spider-Man and Flash jumped up a spot each (although numbers remained relatively unchanged), but Detective Comics made a significant leap three slots up to #5 from #8 with more attention on Batman due to his upcoming marriage to Catwoman.

6 (6) – Batman White Knight
7 (13) – Justice League
8 (9) – Action Comics
9 (7) – Walking Dead
10 (10) – Star Wars

The Justice League relaunch is attracting some attention, and Justice League jumped a number of spots, while the rest of the top 10 is pretty unchanged.

Saga – 11 (11)
Darth Vader – 12 (12)
Superman – 13 (14)
X-Men Gold – 14 (18)
X-Men Red – 15 (16)
Wonder Woman – 16 (15)
Thor – 17 (23)
X-Men Blue – 18 (19)
Avengers – 19 (20)
Mister Miracle – 20 (17)

The top 20 is fairly established, although Thor jumped a couple of spots with the new #1 coming out, interestingly Avengers, which also has a new #1 has not moved much at all.

21 (21) – Astonishing X-Men
22 (25) – Old Man Logan
23 (22) – Black Panther
24 (N/A) – DC Nation
25 (28) – Deadpool
26 (30) – Invincible Iron Man
27 (33) – Oblivion Song By Kirkman & De Felici
28 (24) – Paper Girls
29 (26) – Titans
30 (31) – All New Wolverine

Our first new entry comes in at #24 with the .25 DC Nation #0 comic. Oblivion Song and Invincible Iron Man both took little jumps, with Oblivion Song steadily drawing interest as buzz builds around the series.

32 (29) – Super Sons
33 (39) – Doctor Strange
34 (27) – Nightwing
35 (32) – Peter Parker Spectacular Spider-Man
36 (N/A) – Captain America
37 (35) – Daredevil
38 (40) – Hal Jordan And The Green Lantern Corps
39 (38) – Terrifics
40 (44) – Star Wars Thrawn

Justice League – No Justice makes its debut, and Captain America gets some renewed interest as it makes its first appearance on the charts since Secret Empire ended. Nightwing saw a fairly significant drop, down seven spots, while Doctor Strange jumped up six spots.

41 (N/A) – Hunt For Wolverine
42 (N/A) – Action Comics #1000
43 (37) – Teen Titans
44 (43) – Punisher
45 (34) – Star Wars Doctor Aphra
46 (36) – Star Wars Poe Dameron
47 (N/A) – Thanos
48 (42) – Infinity Countdown
49 (41) – Spider-Man Deadpool
50 (45) – Batman And The Signal

Hunt for Wolverine, and Thanos make their grand entrances. Action Comics #1000 ended up on many peoples’ lists this month, which helped propel it to a record breaking 500,000 copy print run.  Batman and the Signal drops down a few slots to round out the top 50.

Spider-Man, Aquaman, Suicide Squad, Harley Quinn, and Venom all dropped off the top 50 this month.
