The top selling comic book of the year did not come from one of the big two, Marvel or Dc, for the second year in a row. For the second consecutive year Walking Dead had the highest selling comic book with “All Out War.”

According to Chomichron, which tracks sales statistics for comic books, issue #115 of Walking Dead sold nearly 330 thousand copies in 2013, outselling big projects from Marvel and DC such as Infinity and The Justice League of America. The previous year was also dominated by the series with issue #100 “Something to Fear Part 4″ selling more than 350 thousand issues. It was a good year for comic books in general, as sales saw an overall increase of about 9 percent from 2012.

This is the first time in over a decade that a publisher besides Marvel or DC had the highest selling comic book for multiple years, going back to 97-99 when Image Comics managed to do it three years in a row. Walking Dead clearly has favorable timing on its side though. Pop-culture has been dominated with zombie based fiction over the past few years with films like World War Z and the extremely popular AMC show, The Walking Dead, which is based on the comics.

Walking Dead started back in 2003 with creator Robert Kirkman and has since went on to become one of the most successful franchises in the industry as well as a very coveted modern classic. First pressings of Walking Dead #1 routinely sell for 1 thousand dollars or more. The series is also credited by many as reviving the horror comics genre and won an Eisner Award in 2010 for Best Continuing Series at San Diego Comic-Con.

The Walking Dead will have its mid-season premiere on AMC Feb. 9 and Walking Dead #120 will be available Jan. 22.
