Commentary:

* After a week in the shadow of the power of the Wimpy Kid movie, Twilight resumes it place at the top of the comics list (#46 overall).

* Scott Pilgrim remains strong for a second week. Can it keep its strength through the movie's opening in August?

* A good week for strip collections; the latest Complete Peanuts debuts at #18, while collections of Pearls Before Swine, FoxTrot, and Zits also debut.
