N = New listing appearing on list for first time
R = Item returning to the list after having been off for 1 or more weeks

Commentary:
  • Batman: The Killing Joke takes the top slot for the second week in a row.
  • No sooner do Jeffrey Brown's Darth Vader books slide out of their Father's Day-fueled perch atop the comics chart then his third Jedi Academy book comes out and shoots up to the #2 position. The Kindle edition debuts in the middle of the chart. Remember kids: Jeffrey Brown + Star Wars = $$$$$$
  • The top debut this week is, oddly, Superman: Red Son, a twelve-year-old Elseworlds book by Mark Miller, Dave Johnson & Kilian Plunkett. I looked in vain for a reason, but all I could find was an announcement of some forthcoming statues based on the characters.
  • The pre-orders for the second volume of The Wicked + The Divine debut strong, and bring up sales of the first volume as well. Could W+D be the next Saga?
  • The new issue of Injustice debuts in single digital issue land, as does the first issue of Marvel's Civil War (Marvel has finally started making their single issues available on Kindle.)
  • Also debuting this week is the sale-prince Kindle edition of a Batman: The Brave and the Bold, and the second volume of Southern Bastards.

Commentary:
  • This column is going up on Sunday instead of Friday this week. Because I'm an idiot.
  • With Father's Day in the rearview mirror the demand for Jeffrey Brown's Darth Vader books has abated, leading to The Killing Joke rising to the top slot this week. Love it or hate it, this nearly thirty-year-old Batman comic still has staying power.
  • There are several debuts this week: aside from the obligatory new issue of Injustice, there's the First collection of Snyder & Jock's Wytches; the third Ms. Marvel collection, the third massive Walking Dead Compendium; the fourth East of West collection; and the sale-priced Kindle edition of the first volume of the manga Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?

Items with asterisks (*) are pre-order items.

N = New listing appearing on list for first time
R = Item returning to the list after having been off for 1 or more weeks

Commentary:
  • The same two Jeffrey Brown Star Wars book that took the top spot last week take it again this week, just with their positions switched, as Father's Day approaches this weekend.
  • The Tokyo Ghoul manga is released and jumps up into the top five. I'm assuming that the anime must be extremely popular?
  • Just two new releases this week: The latest Kindle issue of Injustice; and the slipcase hardcover compilation of Daniel Clowes' Eightball.
  • A couple of days ago, Kieron Gillen posted that the first collection of The Wicked + The Divine has sold over 50,000 copies in total. That sales level hasn't been evident from these Amazon charts alone, but it's a good reminder that sales of graphic novels can come from across multiple channels, and a book that sells just average in one channel can be selling great in another and/or in total. And the tail can be long.

Commentary:
  • Two of Jeffrey Brown's Star Wars books take the top two slots this week, most likely due to advance gift buying for Fathers' Day.  
  • The print and Kindle editions of Fun Home take two of the top five slots this week, no doubt basking in the afterglow of the Fun Home musical's five Tony Awards, including Best Musical.
  • Pretty quiet on the new entries this week, with just the latest Kindle issue of Injustice and a new collection of East of West.

  • The top debut this week is the requisite Kindle issue of Injustice. Other Kindle debuts are a new Minecraft comic and the Young Gotham Sampler (which includes the first issues of Grayson, Gotham Academy & new Batgirl). On the print side, two manga debut: the latest Naruto volume, and the first volume of Tokyo Ghoul.

Commentary:
  • The top of the chart is pretty much the same as last week, with slots #1-3 exactly the same and #4 & #5 swapping places.
  • The top debut this week is the new digital issue of Injustice, followed by Gemma Correll's The Worrier's Guide to Life, the first collection of the new Thor, and Matthew Diffee's cartoon collection Hand Drawn Jokes for Smart Attractive People.
  • Marvel's Civil War and Infinity Gauntlet remain strong, proving perhaps that anticipation of upcoming Marvel movies drive trade sales more than the release of those movies.

Items with asterisks (*) are pre-order items.

N = New listing appearing on list for first time
R = Item returning to the list after having been off for 1 or more weeks

Commentary:
  • The latest Walking Dead collection is #1 on the chart for the second week in a row. But now that the TV show is off the air, sales on WD have softened overall, with just the two Compendia and one other collection charting this week.
  • Sales on Allie Brosh's Hyperbole and a Half spiked up this week, with the paperback and Kindle editions charting in the top ten and the hardcover even making a rare appearance as well. I suspect that it was because Bill Gates mentioned it as his top Summer Read on his blog this week; he also listed Randall Munroe's XKCD but only mentioned the Webcomic and not the print collection, so it doesn't chart.
  • The only debut this week is the new digital issue of Injustice.
