Wie in jedem Jahr, fragte der größte US Comic Distributor -Diamond Comic Distributors- auch Anfang diesen Jahres ihre Händler, welche Comic-Titel sich im mittlerweile abgeschlossenen Vorjahr am besten verkaufen ließen und wählte somit die Top-Titel des vergangenen Jahres, um die Diamond Gem Awards zu vergeben.
Im Jahr 2018 sah es scheinbar vor allem für DC Comics mehr als rosig aus, denn der Verlag gewann unter anderem in den Kategorien „Best Publisher“, „Best Comic“ oder auch „Most-Ordered Comic“.
