Monday's Headlines - April's 2018 Comic Book Sales Numbers

As expected, DC Comics' all-star Action Comics #1000 anthology, priced at $7.99 and previously reported to have sold in excess of 500,000 copies, provided the comic book Direct Market a big boost in April 2018 - though Marvel Comics still managed to top the market share categories, according to figures released by Diamond Comic Distributors Friday morning.
