This slide is part of my post entitled
Newsstand Rarity Discussion & Estimates where I have collected quotes and graphics related to the discussion of relative newsstand rarity over the years, compared to direct edition copies. In this slide, we can see the start of direct edition comics (1979), the estimated 50/50 point where direct edition and newsstand sales were even slices of the market (circa 1985/1986 based on the estimates from another slide), and then the industry-wide estimated newsstand sales percentage in 2013, which was the year when Marvel pulled out of the newsstand sales model.
