Items with asterisks (*) are pre-order items.
* Amazon had another search glitch earlier in the week, which may have had some affect on the sales rankings.
* With Watchmen interest waning, The Wimpy Kid volumes regain their usual dominance at the top of the chart.
* The middle volumes of Y, the Last Man make a surprising surge up onto the chart. The only explanation I can think of is that the people who bought the second deluxe edition last week felt the desire to continue the story immediately and not wait for a third deluxe volumes.
* The Wolverine movie halo has completely eroded.
