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.

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:
  • A new #1 book this week: the newest Walking Dead collection.
  • The top debut this week is the second Rat Queens collection, with a somewhat surprising top ten debut.
  • Also debuting this week are collections for Fables, Spider-Verse, Thor and Saga; as well as the next Kindle issue of Injustice and a sale-priced Kindle edition of a religious graphic novel: The Battle Begins: The Story of Creation.
  • Since I began tracking these Amazon charts (back in 2009) it's long been a truism that Marvel have a problem selling their comics in the general book market. It may be time to reassess that alleged truism, since as of late they've been doing fairly decently: they have seven collections on the top fifty chart this week, including two in the top ten. Granted they still have some issues (like if Avengers: Age of Ultron is on its way to becoming one of the top grossing movies ever, where are the Avengers comics on this chart...?), but it looks like their days of being an also-ran are maybe over. I seem to recall in the past year or so that Marvel moved to a new book market distributor, so maybe that has something to do with it?

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:
  • Avengers: Age of Ultron had the second largest debut of any movie last weekend, but there are still no Avengers books in the top fifty. However, two upcoming movies that will be follow-ups, Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War, put associated collections into the top five, with Civil War taking the top slot and Infinity Gauntlet at #4. So Marvel is able to drive sales based on their upcoming movies, if not their current hit. (See also DC's Suicide Squad, which sees its first New 52 collection moving up the chart based on a couple of production stills and cast photos from its upcoming movie.)
  • It's actually a pretty good week for Marvel: they have seven titles on the chart this week, including the first issue of Secret Wars (that's the physical comic, sold only through third-party sellers).
  • Jeffrey Brown snags six of the spots all by himself this week, with his Star Wars books (which are not produced by Marvel, but by Chronicle Books).

Commentary:
  • The new Avengers movie opens today, so of course the chart is dominated by Avengers titles, right? Nope, there's not a single Avengers book in the top fifty. 
  • It's a good week for Batman though, as the Killing Joke returns to the top spot, the three debuts titles are all Batman, and there are twelve separate Batman books in the top fifty.

Commentary:
  • With the new Avengers movie just one week away from opening, the top of the Amazon comics chart is dominated by... two Batman comics from the 1980s.
  • To be fair, Marvel does manage to place several Daredevil books on the chart (helped in part by the ongoing Kindle Daredevil sale), as well as collections of Ms. Marvel, Civil War, Deadpool and Captain Marvel. And an Avengers OGN does show up on the chart, way down at #50.
  • The top debut this week is Sydney Padua's  The Thrilling Adventures of Lovelace and Babbage, an ersatz take on the prehistory of computer science. Also debuting are an Injustice print collection, the final Scott Pilgrim color edition, a Minecraft comic, and a Captain Marvel collection.

Commentary:
  • The two Walking Dead Compendia retain the top two slots this week, though with the season wrapped up for the TV show the other WD collections show some softening.
  • The big news this week is Daredevil: A combination of the debut of the Netflix series and a sale on Kindle editions brings five Daredevil collections to the chart. Four of those five are the only debut titles for the week.
  • With just two weeks to go until the new Avengers movie, will we see a surge of interest in Avengers comics? So far not so much, with just the recent Rage of Ultron OGN popping in near the bottom of the chart. It seems that recently Marvel have made some strides inturning broader cultural interest in their properties into at least modest collection sales, but these next few weeks will be the first real test...

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:
  • Several of the Walking Dead collections drop on the chart as the recent season has finished, but the two Compedia take the top two slots again, switching positions from last week.
  • The top debut this week is the first Lumberjanes collection. Also debuting are a Minecraft comic, two new Jeffrey Brown Star Wars books, and Frank Miller's Daredevil: The Man Without Fear (likely due to the new television series debuting on Netflix today).
  • The book in the top slot on the Amazon site is Lucy Scott's Diary of a New Mom, but I took a look at it and decided that it's a picture or illustration book, not a comic. As usual, ymmv.
