Items with asterisks (*) are pre-order items.
* Watchmen still sits atop the Comics bestseller list, though it has slid to #13 on the overall list. The 'halo effect' also wanes, as much of the titles associated with the supposed halo also take a fall.
* After an off week last week, manga makes a resurgence. New pre-order listings for 3 more volumes of Naruto certainly helps, but we surprisingly also get volumes of Negima! and xxxHOLiC showing up on the list for the first time.
* The highest debut belongs to the pre-order for the new Dark Tower hardcover, and it brings the previous collection along for the ride. Unfortunately for Marvel these are the only volumes they have on the list, which pretty much assures that Marvel will keep making Dark Tower comics no matter how far they may slide in the sales of individual issues.
* After a brief surge up last week, comics in the Whedonverse slide back down to typical levels this week.
* And Jeff Kinney? It's like he's got a freakin' money machine; sales on Diary of a Wimpy Kid volumes are as rock-solid as ever.
