A poco più di un mese dall’arrivo del 2020, sembra di essere tornati negli anni Novanta, quando in testa alla classifica di Diamond, il principale distributore di fumetti del Nord America, si alternavano gli X-Men di Scott Lobdell e Joe Madureira e lo Spawn di Todd McFarlane e Greg Capullo. Alle redini della serie Marvel dedicata agli X-Men ci sono ora lo sceneggiatore Jonathan Hickman e il disegnatore Leinil Francis Yu, riuniti per innescare Dawn of X, la seconda fase del rilancio mutante dopo le miniserie Powers of X e House of X (che si concludono rispettivamente al terzo e al quarto posto della classifica).

X-Men non è l’unico titolo del progetto in graduatoria: al nono posto troviamo infatti il primo numero di Marauders, di Gerry Duggan e Matteo Lolli, mentre al dodicesimo Excalibur, di Tini Howard e Marcus To.

Il team creativo del numero #301 della serie Image Comics è invece lo stesso di vent’anni fa, con l’aggiunta di Jason Shawn Alexander, Clayton Crain, Jerome Opena e del nostro Francesco Mattina per celebrare un record: trattasi infatti dell’albo che rende Spawn la serie indipendente più longeva del Fumetto americano (superando di misura Cerebus, di Dave Sim). Difficile che con gli appuntamenti successivi la creatura di McFarlane – pronto a tornare a occuparsi di testi e disegni come ai tempi d’oro – tenga il passo, ma considerando che il numero #300 della sua serie è stato il fumetto più venduto di settembre, possiamo già affermare che il 2019 sia stato un anno positivo per lei.

 

 

Non si può dire lo stesso della Image post-The Walking Dead e con Saga ancora in pausa, dato che Spawn #301 è l’unico suo titolo nella classifica dei comic-book. È un momento complicato per il Fumetto indipendente d’oltreoceano, con le due principali major che si dividono gran parte del mercato: nella Top 100 degli spillati, infatti, troviamo solo Vengeance of Vampirella #1 (50° posto), di Tom Sniegoski e Michael Sta. Maria, per la Dynamite, e Something is Killing Children #2 (96°), di James Tynion IV e Werther Dell’Edera, per i BOOM! Studios.

 

 

La DC Comics (che porta a casa il 31,67% dei ricavi vendendo il 32.02% delle copie) ha solo un titolo nella Top 10, Joker: Year of the Villain #1, l’attesissimo speciale scritto dal regista John Carpenter e da Anthony Burch per i disegni di Philip Tan.

Il resto degli slot è occupato da proposte Marvel non legate agli X-Men: Amazing Mary Jane #1 di Leah Williams e Carlos Gomez, Absolute Carnage #4 di Donny Cates e Ryan Stegman, Ghost Rider #1 di Ed Brisson e Aaron Kuder e Immortal Hulk di Al Ewing e Joe Bennett, che celebra venticinque uscite. La Casa delle Idee ottiene il 39.51% degli incassi e il 45.20% delle singole unità.

Dopo la graduatoria dedicata agli spillati trovate quella sui volumi, tra graphic novel (GN) e raccolte in brossurati (TP) o in cartonati (HC): qui gli editori indie – come di consueto – fanno miglior figura, ma al vertice troviamo comunque una major, con la prima parte di Doomsday Clock, la maxi-serie di Geoff Johns e Gary Frank che mette insieme gli eroi DC Comics e i personaggi di Watchmen.
