In his 80th anniversary year, DC Entertainment’s Man of Steel has proven himself to still be the top superhero, with Diamond Comic Distributors announcing last year’s Action Comics No. 1000 as the top-selling comic of 2018.
The oversized special edition, which featured writer Brian Michael Bendis’ debut on the Superman franchise ahead of his Man of Steel relaunch last summer, was the best-seller in a year that saw single issue comic book sales rise 3.3 percent compared with 2017 sales, according to Diamond. It also helped DC become the number two publisher of 2018, with two additional books in the year’s Top 10 issues — Batman No. 50 (The non-wedding issue) and The Batman Who Laughs No. 1.
