Diamond Comics has released its sales figures for May 2017. According to Diamond, Secret Empire #1 was the best-selling comic of the month, with an estimated 157,517 copies sold (according to figures from Comichron).
Secret Empire was followed by Venom #150 (141,757 copies sold) and the lenticular editions of Batman #22 (114,173 copies sold) and The Flash #22 (104,506 copies sold). However, as was the case with April’s controversial sales numbers, Batman and The Flash were actually the two top-selling comics of the month. Because the lenticular and standard versions of those two issues were priced differently, Diamond listed sales figures for each version separately. When both versions are added together, Batman #22 comes out on top for May with a combined 186,914 copies sold, with Flash following at 163,767 copies sold (again, based on Comichron’s estimated figures).
