November numbers: ICv2 comes through with Diamond's comics sales figures for November. In its analysis, the website notes that only six titles broke the 100,000 mark in November, versus 13 in October. Four of the top five comics were "special event" titles.

Although Marvel dominated the top 10 single-issue slots, Dark Horse and DC held to top spots for graphic novels and trades. (EDIT: A tip of the hat to John Jakala, who points out that the November GN figures are actually the ones from October. Someone might want to tell ICv2.)

ICv2's estimates typically are more conservative than those released by Newsarama.
