Commentary:
  • It too a while—three months since the film came out—but a Deadpool collection finally reaches the top spot on the Amazon chart. Oddly it's the Kindle edition (and not even sale-priced), while the print edition doesn't appear on the chart.
  • The top debut this week is the first Preacher collection, no doubt in advance of the TV show that debuts in a couple of weeks. Could Preacher be the next Walking Dead?
  • Also debuting this week are the latest issue of Injustice, the sale-priced Kindle edition of Captain America: Civil War, and Wolverine: Old Man Logan.

  • Also debuting this week are new volumes of One-Punch Man, Descender, and My Hero Academia.

  • Just a week away from Captain America: Civil War hitting theaters, and Civil War fever has hit the Amazon chart, fueled by a sale on the Kindle editions of the comic and its various tie-ins.
  • Most recently featured on Slate, Maximilian Uriarte's Iraq War memoir The White Donkey: Terminal Lance has been getting good reviews in the mainstream and non-comics press. It's in the top five this week and the Kindle edition debuts on the chart as well.

Commentary:
  • Batman: The Killing Joke jumps up past the Walking Dead Compendia to make a return visit to the top of the chart, likely spurred on my recent news about the upcoming animated adaptation.
  • The top debut this week is the latest volume of Tokyo Ghoul, followed closely by Star Wars: Vader Down. Also debuting are Ch05En #0, a Kindle-only comic prelude to the popular Kindle prose series; the latest Kindle issue of Injustice; and a Kindle edition of some more Minecraft comics.
  • It's been a couple of months since the Deadpool movie came out, and interest in the character's various comic book exploits remains relatively strong—a rarity these days when usually it's the anticipation of a movie that drives comic collection sales on Amazon, with interest dropping off fairly rapidly after the movie actually comes out.

Commentary:
  • Traditionally the week after a season finale of The Walking Dead television show means a surge in sales of The Walking Dead comics, and this week is no exception: seventeen WD books and comics make the top fifty this week, including the top three and four of the top five.
  • The top debut this week is Black Panther: A Nation Under Our Feet, the first collection of the Coates & Stelfreeze Black Panther series, which doesn't come out until September. The first issue, which did come out this week, shows up on the chart in its Kindle edition, and saw a lot of attention in non-comics news and other media this week.
  • Other debuts this week include a new Rat Queens collection, the first Paper Girls collection, a new Attack on Titan volume, and Breaking Cat News.
