Last Month the top spot on the Diamond Comics Distributors Top 100 list was held by a Batman book: "Batman: The 10 Cent Adventure." For the month of February, Batman's on top once again, but this time it's the finale to the "Dark Knight Strikes Again" series. But the Top 10 is once again dominated by Marvel who steals eight of the top ten spots on the list.

Coming in at #10 is Kevin Smith's "Green Arrow." It'll be interesting to see what happens with this title sales wise once Kevin leaves the title after issue #15 and Brad Meltzer takes over with issue #16.

Images top book for February was "Rising Stars #18" which just beat out "Spawn #119." CrossGen did well this month with "Sojourn #8" coming in at #73, and Dark Horse breaks into the top 100 with "Joss Whedons Fray #7" settling in at #75.
