Throwback Thursday In Comics | Top 50 1993 Comic Book Sales

The chill of winter was beginning to be felt in December 1993, as the biggest year in the history of comics in dollar terms drew to a close.

Spawn #19 was the consensus first-place comic book at both Diamond and Capital City.

This was the last month during which publishers' comics could be late by as much as 90 days through Diamond; Diamond had tightened the cancellation window to 60 days.

The market shares included a number of publishers whose works will not be found in the comic book and trade paperback markets. Wizard was joined by Sendai, whose Warrior imprint published Wizard rival Hero Illustrated. Andrews McMeel was there largely on the strength of its Calvin and Hobbes collections.
