Our Digital Comic Downloads and Sales: Through Mid-2011 (UPDATED)

Back in January, I listed our 2010 sales broken out by distributor and what percentage of our sales came from each. I figured now was a good time to update that chart so other comics creators thinking of going digital can compare notes and maybe dive into the digital world at last.

The sales number listed below are go back from when we started back in September 2010. The numbers cover issues 1-6 of IN MAPS & LEGENDS, our combo ebook that bundles issues 1-4, and our Formatting Comics ebook.

List of distributors and their percentage of sales, September 2010 to June 2011:

  1. B&N’s Nookbook Store: 42%
  2. Amazon’s Kindle Store: 26%
  3. Comixology: 16% (estimated)
  4. DriveThruComics: 4%
  5. Amazon’s Kindle Store in Germany: 4%
  6. Graphicly: 3% (not up to date)
  7. Amazon’s Kindle Store in the UK: 2%
  8. The Illustrated Section: 2%
  9. SmashWords:  .5%
  10. MyDigitalComics: .5%

NOTE: We’re still waiting on final sales numbers from a couple distros, including Comixology and Graphicly. I’ll update this table when I get the numbers.

UPDATED 7/7/11: Updated percentages based on rough numbers from Comixology.

For comparison’s sake, here’s the table from January covering our sales from September 2010 to December 2010:

    Hope that helps, Adam. Please note that we haven’t gotten 2nd quarter numbers for 2011 from Comixology yet, so that’s a big part of its low percentage.
