Top 10 Best Selling Comic Books: March 2017

March was a month dominated by DC Comics, Batman specifically–all five of DC’s entries in the top 10 comics sold in March 2017 featured Bats in some fashion. The top spot, however, went to Marvel and its Amazing Spider-Man #25 super-sized issue, with its reboot X-Men Prime and Iron Fist joining perennial entrant Star Wars, thanks in no small part to Iron Fist’s new Netflix series sparking some interest in the character.

Keep on reading for the top 10 comics sold in March 2017.

#1: Amazing Spider-Man #25

Publisher: Marvel Comics
AiPT! Score: 7.5 (Read review)

“Not exactly worth $10, but enough good stories and great art to be worth picking up.”


#2: Dark Knight III: The Master Race #8

Publisher: DC Comics
AiPT! Score: 8.0 (Read review)

“An excellent issue as an all out war takes place, but you’ll be left scratching your head as far as where it wraps up.”


#3: Batman #18

Publisher: DC Comics
AiPT! Score: 8.0 (Read review)

“Batman #18 further reinforces that notion and leaves us once again on the edge of our seats, craving the next issue thanks to a discomfiting, yet intriguing narrative and larger than life art.”


#4: Batman #19

Publisher: DC Comics
AiPT! Score: 9.5 (Read review)

“Stocked with interesting villain vs. villain character exchanges, further parallels between Bane and Batman and an ending whose air of unpredictability should leave even the most ardent Bat-fans wondering what will happen next, the issue is one of King’s greatest successes in the series yet and perfectly complemented by Finch’s delightfully hyperbolic art.”


#5: Iron Fist #1

Publisher: Marvel Comics
AiPT! Score: 8.0 (Read review)

“Although a bit formulaic, a well written story with exciting artwork makes Danny Rand’s introduction a successful one.”


#6: X-Men Prime #1

Publisher: Marvel Comics
AiPT! Score: 6.0 (Read review)

“It is possible for X-Men stories to feature classic elements while moving forward. Let’s hope the creators lined up do just that. But an ad campaign that tells readers, “You asked for it. You got it,” seems like nothing more than fan service to boost sales.”


#7: Star Wars #29

Publisher: Marvel Comics
AiPT! Score: 8.0 (Read review)

“Fans of the Force need to see this as they’ve never seen it utilized quite like this.”


#8: All-Star Batman #8

Publisher: DC Comics
AiPT! Score: 6.5 (Read review)

“A stylishly executed, but ultimately predictable story.”


#9: The Walking Dead #165

Publisher: Image Comics

“OPPORTUNITY” When Alexandria is at its weakest… they strike.


#10: Justice League #16

Publisher: DC Comics
AiPT! Score: 8.0 (Read review)

“The time travel gobbledygook is beginning to grow tiresome as a lack of answers and lots of teasing continue. You can’t fault the awesome art and premise though!”
