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:

* Wednesday Comics vaults way up from #50 last week to #4 this week. Meanwhile, last week's inexplicable rise of Persepolis proves to be just a momentary blip (don't worry, it will likely be back up in the top 10 in September...)

* Both Wilson & Crumb's Genesis fall out of the top 10, and rather sharply at that.

* There's a lot of volatility in this weeks' chart in general.

* Three manga make their chart debuts this week, the latest volumes of Hellsing, Negima! and Naruto.
