Diamond released their sales rankings for the month of February for comic books and graphic novels.

We see Batman and Forever Evil came out on top as well as two issues of The Walking Dead making the top ten list.

Superior Spider-Man is still a fan-favorite for Marvel, and the new Fanastic Four and Wolverine look to have sold pretty good as well.

We also see the Star-Lord: Annihilation Conquest TPB in the top ten for graphic novels which is a good sign with the new Guardians of the Galaxy movie hitting in August.
