Comic Dollars Up in April
Sales of comics were up 6% vs. the year ago period in April, the first up month in 2009. Price increases and a stronger shipping schedule appear to be the primary reasons for the increase.
Sales on the Top 100 graphic novels slipped a little vs. the previous year, but that’s not a super representation of the whole segment.
So over-all, we can concentrate on the positives for April, a substantial improvement over the first quarter.
