Throwback Thursday - Top 50 April 1996 Comic Book Sales

Image took the top six slots at Diamond in a month where crossover and team-up books — Medieval Spawn/Witchblade, Spawn/WildC.A.T.S, Grifter/Shi, and Glory/Angela among them — dominated the Top 10. The top DC superhero book was 13th.

Marvel, Viz, Kitchen Sink, and Coppervale were not distributed by Diamond this month.
Diamond was the only distributor carrying DC, Dark Horse, Image, Acclaim, Chaos, Sirius, Crusade, Gemstone, London Night, and Broadway comics, as well as Wizard's magazines. True industry-wide rankings would greatly differ.
