Tony Stark unveils a new armor and comes into conflict with Doctor Doom as the All-New All-Different Marvel debuts in Brian Michael Bendis and David Marquez's Invincible Iron Man #1 from Marvel Comics, the best-selling comic book in October 2015.

Marvel Comics had the top ten best-selling titles in October, including Dan Slott and Giuseppe Camuncoli's Amazing Spider-Man #1 at #2, Jason Latour and Robbi Rodriguez's Spider-Gwen #1 at #3, and Jason Aaron and Chris Bachalo's Doctor Strange #1 at #5, all part of the All-New All-Different Marvel relaunch.

How does Diamond calculate the charts? It all starts at the comic book shop.

Data for Diamond’s sales charts — which includes the monthly market shares and all top product charts — are compiled by Diamond Comic Distributors from sales made to thousands of comic book specialty shops located in North America and around the world.  Additional sales made to online merchants and other specialty stores may be included as well.

Unit and dollar market shares are calculated based upon orders for comic books, graphic novels, and magazines invoiced and shipped to Diamond customers during any given month, which comprises pre-orders, advance reorders, and reorders, minus any copies that are received back from a title marked as returnable. Please note that comics marked with an asterisk (*) have had their reported quantities reduced due to retailer returnability, and thus may rank lower on the charts than their actual sales would reflect.

About the Diamond Sales Index: The Sales Index of selected monthly Best Seller Charts is presented as a comparative tool for retailers and publishers. It presents Diamond’s monthly sales for individual titles in relation to Diamond’s total sales for the issue of DC Comics' monthly Batman comic book. (Batman is used as the control title – with a value of 100 – because sales of Batman usually remain relatively stable. This month, as Batman did not ship, Convergence #8 from DC Entertainment was used as the control index.) This allows for easy comparison to other titles and helps retailers gauge their orders for all other titles. This formula is only a guide, other factors may impact a titles’ ability to sell in certain locations and clientele.
