Items with asterisks (*) are pre-order items.
* Cooke's Parker: The Hunter falls out of the top 10; a temporary dip, or has it run its course? Mazzucchelli's Asterios Polyp stays the course as a top three, just below Watchmen and the new Wimpy Kid.
* Highest debut of the week belongs to Laurie Sandell's The Impostor's Daughter, which comes in at #20 for the hardcover and #22 for the Kindle edition. This is the first time we've seen both the print and digital edition of a comic his the charts at the same time.
* The latest collections of Fables & The Walking Dead debut as pre-orders in the mid-twenties.
* Green Lantern & Buffy interest both seem to be waning this week, while old reliable Batman keeps chugging along.
* No graphic novels from Marvel again this week. Surprisingly, no manga on the chart either.
