  • We've moved out of holiday shopping mode and into university required reading mode, with books like Persepolis, Fun Home, Maus, Understanding Comics, and American Born Chinese moving back onto the chart.
  • The top new item this week is the Kindle edition of The Walking Dead #162. Other new items this week include pre-orders for new volumes of Saga & The Walking Dead, as well as the graphic novel adaptation of Octavia Butler's Kindred; a new volume of the Tokyo Ghoul manga, and the collection of the Star Wars: Han Solo miniseries.
  • A change for the new year in how this chart is compiled: as with the Kindle Prime Reading comics, I will no longer track on this chart compilation those comics that are available on Kindle Unlimited.
