Star Wars and Darth Vader Titles Continue to Soar in June

The Comics Chronicles has released the June estimated sales and the slew of Secret Wars tie-ins did not knock the Star Wars and Darth Vader titles out of the top 10 books.

TitleIssueMonthly RankEstimated Sales
Star Wars63152,652
Darth Vader67107,739
Princess Leia41180,170
Kanan: The Last Padawan32956,370
Star Wars Director's Cut116211,323
Darth Vader Director's Cut117510,273

Star Wars #6 was ranked 3rd and Darth Vader #6 was ranked 6th for the month with estimated sales very little changed from last month.  The penultimate issue of the Princess Leia mini-series dropped roughly 1/5th of it's sales and just missed the top 10.  Kanan: The Last Padawan #3 fell around 8,000 copies and is now selling at roughly half of the debut issue.  Despite Kanan's lower numbers than the other Star Wars titles, the title is still in safe sales territory as Marvel's cancellation numbers are around 20,000 - 25,000 copies.  With the Star Wars Rebels series returning to Disney XD for another season, I'm hopeful the title will stop shedding sales and begin to stabilize it's numbers.  Both the Star Wars and Darth Vader Director's Cut comics sold reasonably well considering they are just more expensive reprints of the first issues of these series.

Please read the blog posting June 2015 comics sales estimates online; seven titles over 100,000 copies.
