Top 50 D.C. Comics Of 1983

[ Note: DC’s 1980’s newsstand cover price variant window continues in this year. ]

To repeat the caveat I gave on the main 1980’s page [which has links to see other years within the decade], the list you are about to see involves no judgment or pricing data, but rather simply ranks the universe of D.C. comics published in 1983 by how many copies have passed through CGC’s doors to date — that’s it!

This exercise should tease out a very interesting list of “key” or otherwise interesting D.C. comics from 1983 but not necessarily an all-encompassing list (if very few copies were created for a given key, that restricted supply could keep the count of CGC submissions low). So without further ado, here below is a list of the top 50 most-submitted D.C. comics from 1983 (census numbers are as of year-end 2016). [Also see: top 50 Marvel comics of 1983; all key comics from 1983 ].
